Your very own Argentine asado!
Experience the authentic flavor of Argentine culture with the Buenos Aires Asado Adventure, a unique food tour that immerses you in the traditional dining experience of the asado. Join a small group of no more than 10 people as we guide you through the customs and rituals of the Argentine asado in a private residence that was once a bakery dating back to 1890.
Begin your tour by getting to know your fellow travelers and preparing the delicious chimichurri sauce. Then, take a stroll through the trendy Palermo Viejo neighborhood as we shop for the freshest ingredients, just like a local. We will visit the butcher, a winery, and a bakery. Along the way, you'll also have the opportunity to admire the neighborhood's vibrant street art and rich history.
Don't miss out on the chance to be a part of the family and learn the secrets of the Argentine asado. Book your spot on the Buenos Aires Asado Adventure today and taste the true essence of Argentine culture.
Picada – We offer dried and aged artisan salami from Tandil, pickles, and some cheese with a Fernandito.
Salads – We serve our signature spinach, mango, and caramelized pecan salad. We will have seasonal variations as well.
Achuras – Grilled offal cuts are the opening salvo of meat before the main course, and we also serve provoleta (grilled provolone cheese with herbs and pepper).
Wine – Every great asado has wine. Therefore, we will purchase a bottle of wine per two people to share.
Main course – Delicious Argentine meat. We’ll go to the butcher, learn about the different cuts, and pick the ones that we like.
Dessert – Traditional Argentine desserts to discover and enjoy, followed by a round of mate, the famous herbal tea you drink through a metal straw.
