The best foods in Argentina:
#1. MEDIALUNAS - No question. This pastry is like offspring of a croissant and a Pillsbury crescent roll. When properly made, they have a thin crispy outer crust covered in a sweet shiny coating, full of air pockets and able to be unrolled and eaten, or wolfed down in two fell swoops. They are everywhere you look, but they aren't always amazing, in fact they can be downright
Best spot: Waaaay to many to choose one. It can also vary batch to batch. (Atalaya pictured)

Sublime behind it's back. Well, like all smart and stubborn people I came around. This Argie classic (like everything else in life) is best topped with a dollop of DDL.
Best spot: Taking recommendations.
#6. BEREJENAS ESCABCHE: Escabeche is a style of preparation similar to pickling, but with a larger variety of spices. My favorite oil-and-vinegar-soaked dish is eggplant, but you can get chicken, rabbit and a variety of other vegetables escabeche style as well.
Best spot: Your kitchen with this recipe
#7. LOCRO: Locro is a hearty stew made from a corn base that is particularly popular on patriotic holidays during the winter, like the 25th of May and 9th of July. There's no standard recipe, but common elements include lentils, pork or beef, potato, butternut squash, red pepper and other veggies.
Best spot: Sorry, no experience in restaurants.
#8. FACTURAS: More than just medialunas, facturas in general come in a huge variety. Chocolate covered and dulce de leche filled churros are an excellent breakfast food in my opinion. Variety will depend shop to shop. It's best to get them early-ish on a weekend (or everyday) morning when they're fresh out of the oven.
Best spot: Many, but La Argentina and La Capital (pictured) in Belgrano are good ones.
