No matter where you are in the world and how great a restaurant's atmosphere may be, sometimes you just don't feel like sitting in a restaurant to eat. Maybe you would rather get food to go and dine at home or even enjoy it while sitting outside in a public park or square.
Take out food isn't as popular in Argentina as it is in some other countries, but when Argentines do get food to go, the go-to choices are typically medialunas (Argentine-style croissants), pizza (usually with a thicker crust, less sauce and more cheese than in other countries like Italy) and empanadas (savory Argentine pastries with any number of fillings like ham and cheese or swiss chard and white sauce).
