It’s difficult to imagine a city more alluring, more enchanting, more nostalgic than the capital of Argentina, Buenos Aires. This cosmopolitan city offers so much by way of food, history and culture.
There are delectable alfajores, buttery biscuits sandwiches filled with dulce de leche, cooked sweetened condensed milk; asado, traditional barbecue techniques that proffer arguably the best steaks in the world; and empanadas, small pastries filled with meat, chicken, vegetables or cheese - the perfect snack. And don’t forget the wine; Argentina’s Malbec wines is renowned worldwide.
The barrios (neighbourhoods) of Buenos Aires are an absolute delight: Recoleta for its leafy avenues, palatial European architecture and Recoleta Cemetery where luminaries and historic figures such as Eva Peron are buried; San Telmo for charming cafes, antiques stores and street tango; La Boca for an Italian influence and the birthplace of one of Argentina’s most successful football teams, Boca Juniors; and Palermo for chic shopping and bars.
