The Parrilla Tour
Parrillas are Argentine restaurants offering the most traditional cuisine. Most visitors to Buenos Aires only dine at the most touristy parrillas published in guidebooks and sadly miss out on some of the city’s most delicious gems. To experience and taste authentic Porteño flavors, join us on our Parrilla Tour, to discover hole-in-the wall restaurants where the locals go, learn about Argentina’s culture and traditions, and meet others during the relaxed and social tour.
The Parrilla Tour includes:
- Walking tour of 3 different authentic local restaurants
- Tasting traditional foods at each stop and excellent Argentine wine
- Visit to one of the best artisanal “heladerias” (ice cream shops) in the city
- English explanations of the food sampled along with an immersion into local culture
