THREE DIFFERENT FOOD STOPS. WE SERVE A FULL (DELICIOUS) LUNCH OR DINNER WITH PLENTY OF (EXCELLENT) WINE.
We will try a succulent Fugazzeta paired with the appropriate Argentine wine at a landmark in the neighborhood. The family opened the doors in 1932. From Tita Merello to Evita Peron, many have paid tribute to this beloved restaurant for serving the best fugazzeta in Buenos Aires. Next, we make a stop at a classic Parrilla to learn about the ingredients and culture behind the foods and savor an Argentine classic paired with Malbec wine. Then we will taste some of the best empanadas “cortadas a cuchillo” paired with wines from the Salta region. And as sweets come at the end, we will end our food tour over a cafesito with homemade sweets.
The barrio of La Boca is strongly European, particularly Italian with many of the original residents Genoese. It is situated close to the old port, to the southeast of the city, a working class barrio and it is home to Maradonna’s old beloved club, Boca Juniors.
We are going to experience delicious foods at mom-and-pop type of eateries; authentic Italian, Argentine classics, superb wine, dessert and more . The tango was born in La Boca and the colored houses of Calle Caminito are a must to be seen. You’ll get insiders tips on where to go if you want to return to this picturesque part of the city and what to avoid. Taste some unique dishes and savor fabulous bites. Given by a local bi-lingual guide in a friendly and casual atmosphere. Join us!
