Unsurprisingly, Buenos Aires’ cuisine is heavily influenced by Spanish and Italian traditions. Typical dishes feature a diverse range of European classics with an Argentinian twist, as well as the occasional nod to Middle Eastern and Asian influences.
Fantastic steak and wine are a given, for nowhere in the world “does” beef like Argentina! Look for a good steak house frequented by locals to ensure that you experience the best cuts of fresh meat in the steak capital of the world. Meat lovers will, of course, be spoilt for choice, but as the tourism industry has grown, food choices have diversified and vegetarians should be able to find good, meat-free alternatives in most cafes and restaurants.
Aside from beef, you will find plenty of delicious pizza and pasta, cooked traditionally but with a spicy Argentinian twist. From a street vendor, try Choripán, the original street food of Buenos Aires: delicious, flavoursome chorizo sausage (Chori) grilled to perfection and served in a crusty French bread roll
