Epic Trips: Eating Your Way Through Argentina
If you're searching for the perfect culinary getaway, Argentina is ripe with the some of the finest gourmet experiences on offer, and part of the appeal stems from the country's focus on communal dining.
Asado—arguably the most famous aspect of Argentinian food culture—is an experience similar to barbeque, using famously tender meat and a balance of local spices, with a focus on sharing dishes between friends, family, and often strangers.

The arbiters of asado
Jobi Chan, who works to create luxury and personally tailored trips all across the globe at Jacada Travel, recommends making the trip to Don Julio, Palermo. Serving local vintages and delectable bife de chorizo, every dish on the menu is bound to get your mouth watering, and is an excellent introduction to Argentinian cuisine and the communal spirit which the country has become so famous for.
Eat like one of the family
If you're searching for a more intimate dining experience, then Jacada travel has the perfect solution. Set in San Isidro, a small and affluent neighbourhood in northern greater Buenos Aires, enjoy dinner in a private home and learn about the rich Argentine traditions of food and wine.
Hosted by Alejandro Frango, Buenos Aires' premier professor of literature and philosophy, he calls upon his expertise on wine and Argentinian history, diving into the fascinating antiquities of the city, and providing you with the dining experience of a lifetime.
Argentina also boasts a singularly impressive skyline - but unfortunately one that can be difficult to see from above. Thankfully, a most stylish remedy: a private helicopter tour. Step on board with a bit of panache, and a flute of champagne, and you're ready to go.
Personally chartered and planned, step on board to watch the sun set over Buenos Aires and simply sit back, relax, and enjoy the view.
