Eat in Buenos Aires
Buenos Aires offer a good gastronomic offer, as much in variety as in prices with areas where they group great quantity of restaurants, among those that stand out Puerto Madero, the Downtown, Recoleta and other places like La Boca, with their traditional inns. The main foods that waste away are those arisen of to the mixture of the resources characteristic of the area with the contributions of the migratory currents, specially Spanish and Italian. The most traditional thing, although not him more consumed they are the cuts of bovine meat, more the diverse products, as sausage, arisen of this and the chicken meat that eat up generally roasted or in milanesa form (prepared of meat covered with grated bread). The other meats like those of pig and lamb and all the sea products are less common. The foods are accompanied with vegetables among those that stand out tomatoes, lettuces, carrots, onion, several vegetables and potato and sweet potato, as likewise variety of fruits. The milky products are also plentiful. The pastas and pizzas and empanadas (turnovers) are also very common.

There are different types of gastronomic stores.

Asadores Criollos (Creole spits): with the traditional meat of the region are in tourist areas, but also in some neighborhoods, with prices that leave of those 8 dollars. The pizza stores are something traditional in Buenos Aires also offering variety of turnovers, its prices are very varied being sometimes adapted to the quality beginning with those 6 dollars the pizza, although there are some chains that offer it until for 2 dollars.

The restaurants offer all type of plates, there being some specialized ones in ethnic foods.

Fast foods: many world big chains of fast foods are broadly diffused in Buenos Aires, with their international prices. There is also a series of stores, many of which are in Lavalle street that offer hamburgers for 1 dollar, as well as great quantity of stores and street positions that sell panchos (hot dogs) and the traditional choripanes (sausage sandwichs) for the same price.
