On Friday the country will be celebrating one of its most important national holidays, the 25 de Mayo, day in which the Viceroyalty of the Rio de la Plata was overthrown and replaced by the First Assembly; one of the turning points in Argentine independence.
On patriotic dates as this one and the 9th of July (which is the official date of independence) typical foods including locro (a hearty soup made from maize, vegetables and meats), empanadas, and pastelitos (sweet treats filled with quince and sweet potato jam) amongst others, are enjoyed by the Argentine people.
Those who want to sample the best of typical Argentine cuisine should not miss the special patriot brunch that Hernán Gipponi Restaurant will be serving for the occasion. The menu will feature pastelitos and torta frita, locro of course, and other local delicacies such as tongue and quince with cheese. The 9-step brunch menu will cost 120 pesos and includes different juices, coffee and tea.
