Food and Drink in Buenos Aires
It would be easy to spend an entire day in Buenos Aires doing nothing but eating and drinking in various establishments.
Starting with a traditional Buenos Aires breakfast of milky coffee (cafe con leche) and croissants (medialunas) in a neighborhood cafe, it won’t be long before you’re ready for a dangerously addictive Italian-style gelato ice-cream, followed by a late afternoon beer, an early evening glass of Malbec wine and then, if you’re lucky, an invitation to an Argentinean asado or barbecue.
