On nearly every block in Buenos Aires, you’ll find a panaderia, or bakery. The most popular pastries at the panaderia are facturas. Bakeries are filled with all different kinds. In the mornings, the bakeries open at dawn to prep for the breakfast rush, the sweet smells of pastries waft into the streets. Many Argentine’s will line up first thing in the morning to grab a dozen pastries before work.
In Italy, your Sunday dinner may consist of pasta and meatballs. In England you might have a Sunday roast. In Argentina, no weekend is complete without an asado!

If you are lucky enough to be invited to an Argentinian asado, you will not be disappointed, and we can promise you that you won’t leave hungry!
