Eating out is one of Buenos Aires’ consummate pleasures. Whether you’re out dining with friends, with your partner or by yourself, the Argentine capital has many excellent places to eat.
Here you’ll find more than your fair share of places to stick your knife and fork into a great cut of steak and enjoy the beef Argentina is well known for. Other tasty local favorites to try include plates heaped with pasta, thick slices of mozzarella-topped pizza, hearty stews and golden pastries called empanadas filled with anything you can imagine: beef, chicken, tuna, mozzarella and tomato, swiss chard, creamed corn, Roquefort cheese and spinach.
Otherwise, let Buenos Aires tempt you with its more cosmopolitan side. You’ll find many great internationally-inspired restaurants in Buenos Aires featuring cuisines such as French, Peruvian, Mexican, Japanese, Spanish, American, Middle Eastern and even vegetarian. Fusion food is also amply represented in the city with restaurants like the Peruvian-Japanese phenomenon Osaka.
Wine lovers can rejoice in Buenos Aires too. For wherever you go and whatever you eat in the city, food is more often than not accompanied by a good bottle of wine: most likely a Malbec or a Cabernet Sauvignon.
