Argentine Food that You Have Never Tried Before


Argentina is known for

1. Meat

2. Tango

3. Messi (for soccer fans).

The famous and juicy meat is due to the cows that live happily among the Argentinean fields. In any case, when it comes to Argentine food the roast is one of many dishes of this country. To celebrate independence this July 9, we honor Argentina with some classic delicacies. We start with the provolone on the grill, followed by some chicken breasts, and then fancy your palate with spongy pancakes of dulce de leche. We guarantee you will never see Argentine food in the same way.

In my native country, Argentina, there is a great gastronomic variety, and as in most of the countries we also have different typical regional dishes. Today I share the recipe for a delicious sandwich, typical of the city of Rosario, province of Santa Fe, where I was born and raised. If one day you have the opportunity to visit it, there are some things that you can not miss: discover the monument to the flag, the coast and eat the traditional “Carlitos” in the typical Rosario bars. Carlito you can only find them in Rosario, and basically, they are sandwiches of crumb bread (of traditional Argentine baking, but we can recreate with common sandwich bread) toasted ham and cheese, delicious for dinner or just give yourself a taste pedestrian or riverbank. Today I share the recipe,
