The country is famous for it’s barbecues. I would recommend trying a steak with some delicious home made chimichurri sauce.
Empanadas are another local’s favourite. The best ones I had was also the cheapest in Humahaca with quinoa and melted cheese, yum!
Fernet is a popular drink here, I feel as it’s a bit like Marmite, you hate or you love it. Nevertheless you should try it for the sake of it and only then can you criticise it… or ask for more!
Dulce de Leche this creamy sugary spread is on every Argentinian breakfast table. I found that every Australian traveler I met became addicted to this sweet delicacy.
Mate, not to be confused nor pronounced like the Aussie ‘mate’. Mate in Uruguay and Argentina is considered the ‘national infusion’. It’s a hot drink which taste like a bit like a smoky green tea. Everyone here carries around their individual gourd filled with the local delicacy. It comes with a silver straw called ‘Bombilla’. The great thing about mate is always comes with a social setting, you often see a group of people drinking it and passing their gourd around to others. It’s also high in caffeine so beware don’t drink too much of it if you are trying to go to sleep
