Buenos Aires food and drink

Buenos Aires locals start their day with a cup of freshly roasted coffee and a media luna (Argentinian croissant). For morning tea, try anything (usually cakes or biscuits) made with dulce de leche, which is a sweet, delicious milky caramel syrup – you won’t be sorry. To say that Argentinians love their steak and offal would be an understatement. Make sure you sample these meaty favourites when dining out in Argentina. Again, you won’t be sorry. Black pudding, chitterling, liver and sweetbread are other Argentinian delicacies that look far worse than they taste. Oh and one more thing: ice cream. You. Will. Never. Taste. Better.

As this is a 24/7 city with dining kicking off around 9pm, it's no wonder Buenos Aires really gets down to business after dark. The laid-back bars of Buenos Aires's oldest suburb, San Telmo, are a great place to start your evening. Palermo is the nightlife hub of the city, with Niceto Vega its street lined with nightclubs.

What are the best food markets?

There are all kinds of food markets in Buenos Aires, from organic markets to huge permanent markets, and pop-up food markets. One of the most popular pop-up markets is the Buenos Aires Market, which is like a travelling gourmet food fair. Check out the location which coincides with your holiday – you won't be disappointed. Bring cash to markets, in small denominations of the local currency, and note that haggling is not really a thing here.
