A TRADITIONAL ARGENTINE AFTERNOON SNACK
The traditional home-made Argentine food offers many options. It might include coffee, tea or mate, pastry, croissants or cookies, sweet or savory. There are dozens of alternatives for you to choose. This meal, often ignored in many countries is very important in Argentina. A great place to meet all the options at once is a restaurant called Raíces (Roots) in Saavedra neighborhood (3995 Crisólogo Larralde Avenue, in the corner with Estomba Street).
Their motto is “Homemade cooking with history”. It’s located in an old grocery store founded in 1912. The large windows and wooden tables keep the magic of the old times. There’s a special touch in every dish the chefs make with the idea of replicating “the love a mother puts in everything they make”.
Here, you can try some of the most famous Argentine deserts as quince and sweet potato “pastelitos”, apple fritter, “tortas fritas” and fat cookies. All these options match perfectly with the favorite local beverage, mate. You can also choose among a variety of teas and coffees. A great chance to share a typical Argentine meal as Porteños do.
