Facturas ( like Danish or European pastries) are light and flaky sweet
pastries. With coffee, a great way to start your weekend!
Empanadas are pastry filled appetizers using beef, chicken, spinach, ham
and cheese, corn, or onion and cheese.
Chimichurri sauce is made of Italian parsley, garlic, oil and spices.
Argentineans love sandwiches. Cold ,"Miga" , are small, on crustless bread, with ham and cheese or "surtidos", with some pineapple and roasted red peppers. Usually prepared as six or 12 sandwiches wrapped together.
Tostado Tango Baires is a Lomito sandwich (below) but toasted crustless
Hot, sliced and grilled beef
is called "Lomito", and with a fried egg - "cordobes".
It is toastedlightly in the oven and served warm.

"Cordobesa" adds ham and eggs to your order.
Argentina is known for its juicy and tender beef.
Steaks are grilled, then oven-baked. Entrana is a skirt steak with a layer
of skin, when well-cooked it is crunchy. You might want to order "no-skin".

or beef, and spinach, covered with tomato or mixta sauace and cheese!
A variety of side orders are available. Most dinners include a choice of potatoes - mashed, fries, rusa (potato salad), or mixta (green) salad.
