"Snacking" Buenos Aires Favorite Tip by leok

  Chocolatey goodness

Favorite thing: Feeling peckish and want to stave off hunger the Buenos Aires way?

All the small 'corner' shops have a wide range of snack food including what seems like hundreds of chocolate cake snacks as seen in the pic. Some contain merangue, some chocolate mousse, others biscuit or some other form of sweet yumminess. Once you've tried one it's really tempting to sample at least a couple of the others...

And if you want something hot ask for a 'super pancho' - Argentinian for hot dog. Nearly all the stores have them in a fridge and will dump the sausage in hot water for 5mins to heat it up before serving with sauce and sometimes potato crisps.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
