An exquisite puff pastry, crispy, with a filling that surprises when giving the first bite, so are the Argentine  empanadas  . A dish that has become popular throughout Latin America. In addition, each province has its own version of Creole pie that can be baked or fried.

The classic Argentine empanada “porteña” is stuffed with meat, but there are others such as salteñas, tucumanas, catamarqueñas, Patagonian or Cordoba. The truth is that they also enjoy other fillings and you can taste the flavors of potato, onion, chicken, paprika, tomato and even raisins.

 Locro  is a soup that is prepared with mondongo, pork legs and beef. Corn, onion, bay leaf, cumin and salt are added to make this dish a mixture of unique flavors and textures thanks to meat and vegetables.
