When you think of Argentina a few things probably jump to the forefront of your mind, and two of those things are likely red meat and red wine. In reality, there are so many traditional Argentine dishes to try and they have a sweet tooth rivaled by no other.
Argentina may surprise you as a foodie destination.
European immigration to Buenos Aires brought dishes that have evolved into Argentine versions of their original selves. Indigenous cultures in the Northwest offer some of the country’s best cuisines, with spices and grains little used in the rest of Argentina. In Patagonia try trout and lamb and in the Northeast experience Guarani influenced dishes.
