Filled With Useful Info That Travelers Use To Plan Their South America Tour

Read our travel expert, Clara Tort’s Restaurant Review of The Argentine Experience in Buenos Aires.

When people think of Argentine cuisine, most people only think of beef.  Although Argentina is famous for their outstanding quality of red meat, its national cuisine is actually a blend of indigenous and Mediterranean influences (mostly Spanish and Italian) as well as other regional foods from the immigrants that settled here in the late 19th and early 20th century.

If you’re looking for a cultural experience where you can indulge in traditional Argentine cuisine, than I recommend spending an evening at The Argentine Experience  restaurant in Buenos Aires.   review of the The Argentine ExperienceThe Argentine Experience is an interactive dinner where guests can learn about Argentinian cuisine, taste the countries unique flavors and cook delicious dishes.  This restaurant is located in Palermo, one of the hippest gastronomical areas in Buenos Aires.  The hosts take you through the national food & wine culture.  While there you will enjoy a gourmet three course meal, including the traditional steak paired with several other contrasting Argentine wines, with unlimited pours!

Empanadas

review of the The Argentine ExperienceSimilar to a closed door restaurant experience, your host at The Argentine Experience will provide you with information about Argentine culture and teach you how to make one of the country´s most popular pastries empanadas. These pastries are filled with various ingredients, such as meat, cheese, ham and vegetables.

Mate

review of the The Argentine ExperienceDuring your Argentine Experiencemake sure to try Argentina´s most traditional drink mate.  Mate is an infusion based on yerba mate tea leaves, which are typically found in the North East region of Argentina and widely consumed in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and the south of Brazil.  Each country has their own special spin on how they drink the tea, but the traditional Argentine way is drinking it hot from a gourd.

Alfajor Cookies

review of the The Argentine ExperienceOn your Argentine Experience you will make your own alfajor cookies. Alfajores are shortbread cookies with dulce de leche in the middle.  Dulce de leche is similar to caramel, but more rich and flavorfull.  This delicious treat is also a traditional Argentina product, a confection based on milk and sugar.  But let me warn you, you won’t be able to eat just one.

Wine Cocktail

If you are looking to start the evening a bit earlier with drinks, you can also sign up for the wine cocktail experience. During the wine cocktail hour you will learn about different Argentine wines and the most popular grapes.   You also get to make your own wine based cocktail, which you can enjoy while eating traditional gourmet appetizers.review of the The Argentine Experience

Wine Tour through Argentina

After your Argentine Experience in Buenos Aires, I recommend that you continue traveling to Mendoza, Argentina’s wine country.  Any wine connoisseur knows that Mendoza is famous around the world for producing some of the finest Malbec wines.  Wine from Mendoza is a classic at any Argentinean table.  Create your own customized Mendoza Wine tour through Argentina at SouthAmerica.travel.  Or consider going on our South America Wine Special Edition Tour.

Clara Tort

My name is Clara and I was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the city I love and wish everybody could visit! I graduated with a degree in Tourism Administration in Argentina, after which I decided to move to England to work on my English and continue my learning with a Postgraduate course at the University of Birmingham. UK. After traveling Europe and getting used to fish and chips for lunch instead of the traditional Argentinean “asado,” I came back to my home country in 2008 and started working in the Tourism industry, as a Travel consultant in SouthAmerica.travel. Being a travel enthusiast, I can’t stop touring my home continent, from the breathtaking Galapagos Islands, to the powerful Iguazu Falls, and to my favorite, the Argentinean and Chilean Patagonia.
