Fancy trying some traditional food from Argentina in Chicago? We’ve got some the low down on the best restaurants for Argentinean food, drink and dishes.
The food of Argentina is very un-South American because of its strong resemblance to Italian, Spanish, French and other European cuisines rather than the other Latin American cuisines. This is because of the influence of immigration on the country’s cuisine.
Argentina is well known for being a meat eating country, especially beef. Grilled or BBQ meats are a staple. Steaks and beef ribs are loved. Other treats for the carnivore include Chorizo (pork sausage), morcilla (blood sausage), chinchulines (chitterlings), mollejas (sweetbread), and other parts of the animal!
