Visiting MENDOZA, Argentina: Eating Argentine Pasta

christmas sale Entertainment MindGames
Join us as we visit Mendoza, Argentina eating Argentine pasta and checking out some of the top attractions in the city. After a few days spent touring wineries and vineyards, and sampling our fair share of wine, we decided to enjoy a chill day in Mendoza. We started the day off with breakfast at a local cafe - tea, coffee, croissants and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches were a must! Then we walked to the nearby San Martin Park in the west end of Mendoza; this a massive park with a lake, fountains, and all sorts of sculptures and monuments, so we enjoyed a leisurely stroll in a beautiful setting.

For lunch, we went to 'La Barca', a bodegón, or old-fashioned restaurant specializing in pastas, made fresh every day. We ordered gnocchi, sorrentinos, cannelloni, and also tried a typical meat dish called matambre, which means 'hunger killer' and is basically a flank roll stuffed with vegetables, hard-boiled eggs and herbs. We spent the rest of the afternoon shopping for some souvenirs to take home, and also booking an excursion which you'll see in the next video. Sometimes you just need to have a bit of an easy (or lazy!) travel day, and that's exactly what we did.
