CELEBRACION DE LA COMIDA ARGENTINA!
10 DAYS OF ARGENTINIAN FOOD & DRINK!
Following on from our well received kitchen takeovers SYRIAN KITCHEN & FEAST OF THE EAST, we've gone south to bring you some of the most traditional pub scranners you'd find out and about in downtown Buenos Aires or Rosario. For ten days we'll compliment our regular menu with the following dishes for your perusal!
Traditional in South America, Spain and Portugal, empanadas are little pastry pockets with an intensely flavoured savoury filling. They are great eaten any time but make a particularly good tapas-style snack with a cold beer.
Locro (from the Quechua ruqru) is a hearty thick stew popular along the Andes mountain range. It's one of the national dishes of Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador. The dish is a classic corn, beans, and potato or pumpkin soup well known along the South American Andes. Typically locro is made using a specific kind of potato called “papa chola”, which has a unique taste and is difficult to find outside of its home region.
Croquetas de Jamón are a common sight on bar counters and in homes across Spain & Argentina, served as a tapa, light lunch, or a dinner along with a salad.
DULCE DE LECHE
One could very well say that Argentineans and their dulce de leche are inseparable. A trip to Argentina is not complete without a taste of this decadent, creamy, sweet delicacy. Dulce de leche pancakes are featured highlights in any traditional Argentinean restaurant menu.
