Some argentinean traditions

Ask any Argentine what they think is the most typical Argentine dessert and you are almost guaranteed to learn about the Chocotorta. Chocotorta is as ubiquitous at Argentine kids’ birthdays as tears and temper tantrums are.

The traditional Argentine dish, Milanesa de Napolitana. Breaded and fried beef cutlet topped with prociutto, cheese and tomato sauce. Damn good.

If tango is the soundtrack of Buenos Aires, then it is traditional folklórico that scores the rest of Argentina. And where the countryside collides with the city is at wine-sloshing musical shindigs called peñas.

The most popular type of music is chamamé originally from Corrientes, an area that attracted a lot of European settlers.
