1. La Magpie homemade food

From the hand of  its owners, Mery Duggan and Carlos Santillán  is born an innovative proposal. The Magpie is an ideal subtraction to eat  the best baveuse tortilla in La Cumbre  in the courtyard under the linden or inside if it refreshes. The bondiola is cooked a thousand hours in the clay oven with beer and then fraying: it comes with mashed potatoes and the best chutney,  recipe from Carlos's mother .  For dessert , chocolate mousse without jelly and real eggs. The dishes are hearty, they can be shared and enlarged if diners wish.  The place is cared for by the same owners , which gives it a special service and a unique treatment. The venue is adjacent to the renowned homonymous house of decoration of La Cumbre.

2. Between the deco world and Viva La Pepa

 Nine years ago  Lunchi González  Urquiza began to receive guests  in his car workshop of frames. Little by little they were adding  original and handcrafted decor products,  as well as white items: sheets, bedspreads, cushions, designed by her and made by a group of seamstresses from La Cumbre. With the impetus, Lucila San Román, his daughter joined the proposal. And so they expanded the shed to become a  business of delicate findings ,  products of the art of searching  and resignifying millennial techniques. Hilando fino, is a house of decoration and design of furniture from Santiago del Estero, Copacabana basketry,  handicrafts of Formosa, ceramics of Cordoba and Salta, among other provinces.  

 Later, Viva La Pepa's pastry shop came from her other daughter, Josefina San Román. That he was encouraged to give the gourmet touch to the microworld that his relatives had built.   Live La Pepa Patisserie  in the wagon extended to the garden, with its  recommended chocolate mousse cake    , passion fruit cheesecake, raspberry cakes from  La Quinta del Ruso San Román, the third son of Lunchi, with tea from Tealosophy. Near this place, La Flor opened, burgers and drinks stall, among other sandwiches. This combo of venues is perfect to  enjoy a day of design, decoration and tasting.

This signature snack bar belongs to  Santiago Blondel, the renowned Cordovan chef  who always bets on more and  revolutionizes the gastronomic world.   This post is located in the Shed del Dique San Jerónimo, 8 km from La Cumbre. It offers cuts of meat from a flirty grill in view, plus preparations from the clay oven and vegetable salads and flowers  from neighboring orchards,  dishes to make the dike program worth even more grief.
