Argentina Food Pics
Though I didn’t take as many shots as I would’ve liked, the food was incredible in Argentina. Below are a few I think are representative of what we had down there. The above was a lunch we had in El Calafate: grilled ribeye, french fries, grilled morcilla, grilled lamb tripe, and a malbec to wash it all down.
Another dinner in El Calafate and my favorite meal: Ribeye with fried egg and roasted potatoes with creamed leeks. We also had tagliatelle with bolognese sauce and gnocchi in cream sauce. Again more malbec of course!
Because I love snacks and because I had to try some local junk food. This toasted bread snack was jamón ibérico flavored. A bit bizarre, I liked them at first but the smell got to be a little much after a while.
Oreo’s take favorite on an Argintinean favorite, alfajores. This is basically just three Oreo cookies with their filling and covered in chocolate. I found it funny that they named it Trilogía after the three cookies. For some reason, it reminded me of how we label things as “EXTREME” here.
