Parrilla Tour: Meat eating is mandatory for most people who travel to Argentina and the Parrilla Tour is the perfect way to do it. There are two versions of this carnivorous adventure; one takes place in the San Telmo neighborhood, the other in Palermo. Both include stops at three different neighborhood parrillas, and dessert at an ice-cream parlor (newcomers to Argentina may not know it yet, but Argentine ice-cream is the best.) The guides have interesting information about Argentine cuisine and culture, and also make sure to recommend the top cuts. More information here.
Argentine Experience: This lunch or dinner experience is a great way to get to known what the local cuisine is about. The event begins with a mate refreshment upon arriving and then, once clad in chef hats and aprons, continues onto the empanada-making phase. After that comes a delicious steak and wine lunch, during which some fun and games take place, and then a mate tasting and brewing class, and an alfajor making class, all with top notch information about the local traditions. The dinner option also includes all you can drink until 11pm and free guest list entry to a BA nightclub. Places must be booked in advance. More information here.
