Buenos Aires - Restaurants


Buenos Aires Dining – Local Cuisine and Customs

As Argentina produces the best beef in the world, the porteños (locals) are great meat eaters. They enjoy a light breakfast of bread with café con leche (the only time coffee with milk is served) or maté (tea) and a large lunch which explains why they only need to eat another large meal, usually a parrillada (mixed grill) with salad, after 21.30. Popular desserts consist of fresh fruit with dulce de leche, a delicious custard, pastries made with dulce de leche, or cheese and preserves.

Certainly not a vegetarian nation, steak houses, parrillas, abound. Steak in various cuts is always on the menu and accompanied by excellent red wine. House wine can be ordered by the jug, vino común, somewhat rough, but a dash of soda water can take the edge off it. Coffee is an Argentine given and is on tap throughout the day and night, but it is always strong espresso. Tea is served with lemon slices, unless you ask for un poquito de leche. A submarino is hot steamed milk containing a chocolate bar.

Buenos Aires is a very affordable place to eat out and because of its immigrant background, its diversity of cuisine ensures all visitors are catered for. Italian, Spanish, French, Nordic, Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, Arab, Turkish and Armenian restaurants offer tourists an amazing gastronomic choice. Quick meals (not fast-food), minutas, including pizzas, pastas and salads are freshly prepared in restaurants and bars.

Puerto Madero is known for its superb restaurants.

Buenos Aires Tipping Advice

In restaurants tip about 10% of the bill. Some Argentines simply leave leftover change. Note that tips can’t be added to credit cards, so carry cash for this purpose.

Taxi drivers don’t expect tips, but it’s usual to round up to the nearest peso if the difference isn’t much. It also eliminates the problem of the taxi driver finding change.

It is customary to tip doormen, porters, concierges and hotel attendants, as well as attendants in cinemas, theatres and shows.
