Argentina has a vast and varied landscape, from the great Pampas plains to tropical rainforests and a stunning coastline. The nightlife is second to none in Argentina’s great cities such as Buenos Aries, and the cuisine is regional and extraordinarily delicious.
It’s not for nothing that Buenos Aries has been nicknamed “The Paris of South America”, as it has a really European vibe that is more reminiscent of Paris or Berlin than the Southern hemisphere. In Buenos Aries restaurants the best beef on the continent is served in a bewildering variety of styles and has a legendary quality, and the variety of eateries reflects the cosmopolitan character of the population here.
The most prized dish in Argentina is El Asado, a mixed grill of exceptionally fine cuts served up with mouth-watering sauces. It’s also called Parrallada, and no visitor should leave without trying it at least once.
Take a car across Argentina and you’ll be able to sample some of the glorious regional cuisine. The southern part of the country is especially rich in locally-sourced, seasonal regional dishes, and there’s nothing like dining on them in their natural surroundings.
The Arabic people have left their mark on Argentina not only in some aspects of architecture and language but also in the delicious “alfajor” biscuit sweet, wedged between jam layers and sprinkled with a fine dusting of powdered sugar.
Argentina’s rich and varied cuisine is just one aspect of this marvellously diverse country that attracts visitors from around the world each year.
