Argentina Picks from Epicurious (And Me) -- Where, What to Eat

Long-time readers know I am in love with all things Argentina after my trip last year to Buenos Aires. Here's a link to an Epicurious round up of all things delicious in Argentina I thought would add to what I've written. See below for more of my suggestions.

Some comments on the article -- I ate at Bio, the organic restaurant and had a coconut caramel flan that was gilded with a large scoop of dulce de leche. I probably ate Argentinean gelato at Freddo (or a similar chain) because I ate it everywhere. The helado were scrumptious everywhere. They are made in a gelato style but without heavy cream, so they are relatively lighter in texture and fat. I also recommend Sanjuanino for empandas.

Some other of my top faves not listed in the link: Cooking with Teresita (learn to make your own empanadas) and the private restaurant experience at Casa Saltshaker.
