and restaurants in Buenos Aires
It is often noted that Buenos Aires feels like Europe in many ways. With its Parisian-looking buildings for one thing, but also in the city’s cuisine, which often gleans inspiration from that of Italy and Spain. Buenos Aires is no copycat though, and fuses these influences with its own unique South American flair to create a menu all of its own.Argentina is famous for its steak, and Buenos Aires is no exception: parrillas, open-grill steakhouses, are popular, but there is more to food in Buenos Aires than just steak. Here are some suggestions for steak, or something a little different.
