Wine and Food: Buenos Aires
As one of the foremost cities in the world it is no wonder that this is also a city of tastes and smells!
As one of the top cities in the world, Buenos Aires is a veritable playground for the avid food fan. Featuring many of the top restaurants in both Argentina and the world, there is a vast array of different restaurants and menus to choose from. The traditional fare for most is the ubiquitous steak and glass of Malbec, but Buenos Aires also caters to a whole host of other tastes and palates.
One of the must do activities while here is to partake of a traditional “Parilla” (the Argentines pronounce their “ll” as a “sh” and so this is pronounced “parisha”). This Argentine barbeque has been a traditional meal for centuries and derives from the family and ranch meals that they used to, and still do, have on the estancias both around Buenos Aires and all over Argentina.
Each parilla is different but, on the whole, either a full lamb is butterflied and put on a stake in front of the fire to slowly cook, or a whole load of beef is carved up and you get to choose which part of it you like the look of. The meat and the meal are absolutely outstanding and there are a few restaurants in the capital that we recommend going to….be warned, however, they will keep feeding you if you keep eating!
Another of the more popular dining activities in Buenos Aires is to head to a traditional tango evening which involves a superb meal and one of the traditional shows. This is definitely a great way to spend an evening out and we have a range of different options for varying tastes so please ask!
As with any major city, there are quite a few restaurants that are highly recommended, but they do change fairly regularly and so we don’t feature them on the site as such. If you would like a special table booked or a recommendation then please ask your consultant.
