The benefits of preparing meals during a trip


Empanadas Argentina

When we go on holiday, the topic of food is never a small matter. Undoubtedly, part of the whole experience of discovering a new place is trying the local cuisine. However, not knowing how certain dishes are prepared and trying food that is unfamiliar can leave us frustrated and prevents us from enjoying the rest of the stay.

Choosing a hotel room with self catering facilities can therefore bring many benefits. It gives us the opportunity to eat in restaurants, but also allows us to prepare food that we´re used to.  We´re able to choose between enjoying new dishes in each place we visit and continuing with our familiar diet whilst cooking in the peace and quiet of our own private kitchen.

From an economic point of view, this is a good option, as preparing our own food allows us to save money and reassures us that what we’re consuming is fresh.

Although fast food restaurants can be a quick and cheap alternative, the reality is that we end up consuming unhealthy food renowned for its long term health risks. The best way to maintain a healthy diet is by taking a few minutes in the kitchen to pick and choose our meals. We should also take notice of the way we prepare them (choosing the oven over the frying pan for example). This also means we benefit from not feeling stuffed with junk foods, and will give us more energy which allows us to enjoy our trip more.

In Argentina, people often eat dinner between 9 and 11 PM. For those who are used to eating early and don’t want to wait this late, a self catered room with a fully fitted kitchen would be the best option.

To make sure you´re not tempted to eat out every night during your trip, here´s some advice for when you go shopping:

  • Choose greengrocers, butchers, and bakers over large supermarket chains. These products are better quality and in some cases you may be able to purchase organic products (if this is what you prefer).
  • Ask for seasonal fruit and vegetables. Not only will they be cheaper, but also more flavorsome.
  • In certain parts of Buenos Aires there are farmers markets at the weekends. Visit them to discover unique flavors, meet the farmers and find out how they’re produced.
  • Buy what you plan to use on the day, or at the earliest the day before, so that what you´ve bought hasn´t started to go off. If you change your mind about what you´re planning to eat then you won´t have to go to some sort of fast food chain or restaurant.

Along with these tips, we suggest you try this really easy recipe, suitable for even the most inexperienced cooks. Perfect for any time of year!

Ham, cheese and olive empanadas

Ingredients:

- Ready-made empanada pastry (sold in packets of 12)
- 400 grams of ‘Cuartirolo’ cheese
- 200 grams of cooked sliced ham
- Pitted olives
- 1 egg

Preparation:

1) Cut the cheese into finger sized pieces. Wrap them in slices of ham. Repeat 12 times.

2) Cut the olives.

3) Place the cheese, the ham and some of the sliced olives in the middle of the pastry discs.

4) Brush the edges with the beaten egg (this will help the pastry to bind).

5) Fold the pastry disc in half, locking in the rest of the ingredients.

6) Press down firmly with a fork along the edges to bring the layers together and close the empanada. If you want to, you can try the traditional “pinching” technique. Instructions for this can be found online.

7) Repeat with the rest of the pastry discs. Place them on a greased baking tray and brush the empanadas with the rest of the beaten egg.

8) Place in the oven until they turn golden brown (approximately 30 to 45 minutes).

Serve and enjoy!


Things you MUST do once you are in Buenos Aires


When we visit a city for the first time, we plan our trip upon the places that we have to visit. However, in this occasion we offer a different kind of list. A list with those things that we have to do, traditional of Buenos Aires and which are not specific places to visit but new experiences to live.

Drink “mate”

Drinking “mate” is something traditional in Argentina and without a doubt we should try it if we visit the country. There are different ways to do it, because nowadays “mate” is a drink offered in some of the most popular bars in Buenos Aires and as traditional as coffee or tea.

However, drinking “mate” isn’t something that we have to do exclusively in a bar. We can buy our own “mate kit” in a grocery or a souvenir store and drink mates outdoors as most of Argentinean do.

Mate Buenos Aires

Visit a trade fair

Trade fairs in Buenos Aires are held exclusively during the weekends in different parks of the city. There are different booths in the fairs where we can buy a wide variety of handcrafted products, antiques and even clothing in a very reasonable price. There, you can also enjoy different shows performed in the streets with traditional music and dancing.

Among the most important trade fairs in the city we find the one located in a park called Gral. Manuel Belgrano in Belgrano (Juramento Av. and Vuelta de Obligado, a  block away from Cabildo Av.). On Sundays, in San Telmo, the trade fair is held around Dorrego Park (Defensa St. and Humberto Primo St.).

Ferias en Buenos Aires


Taste traditional food

Buenos Aires offers a wide variety of dishes inspired in international food, but also there are some traditional dishes that we should try if we are in Buenos Aires. It’s not important if we go to the best restaurant in the city or the closest one in the neighborhood we’re staying, roast meat “asado” is a specialty in Argentine and we not only should try it, we will not be able to forget it.

Another traditional Argentinean meal is “empanadas” which are not only delicious but also affordable and ideal when we want to have a quick lunch before continuing our tour through the city.

Probar la carne argentina

Visit a “milonga”

Known as the Argentinean typical dance, Tango is considerate an art in the whole world. In San Telmo neighborhood, we can find the oldest bars of the city, also known as “milongas”, where we can have something to drink while we enjoy the music and the dancing. In some of these places we can also take classes for those people who want to take the experience to the maximum.

Tango y Milonga

Argentinean passion for football

Argentinean people have always been fans of many sports, but it’s definitely football the one that awakes the passion. People who visit the country have the chance to visit the stadiums, where the best football players started their careers. For those who wish to take the experience to the maximum, going to a football match is ideal. You will not only enjoy a sporting event but also share a true Argentinean passion.

Are you an apartment or a hotel kind of person? Survey results!


Holiday rentals are something the majority of you have already tried, with 97% of respondents to our survey saying that they have rented an apartment at least once. On delving further, for 40% of you it is a frequent choice, while for 30% is it always the first choice.

People who rented apartments

People who rented apartments

There are two main reasons why you prefer apartments to hotels:  you get more space for less money and, above all, the freedom that they provide. Also, the possibility of experiencing living closer to locals is something that 18.5% of you value as a positive aspect.

Reasons for choosing apartments over hotels

Reasons for choosing apartments over hotels

For you, staying in an apartment is the best option when taking longer trips or when staying with family. It undoubtedly offers a lot of advantages: you have more space, you can ‘make it your own’, and perhaps more importantly, you have total independence to come and go as you please, to stay at home to eat, to take a rest during the day, to rearrange the room etc.

Ideal kind of trips for apartments

Ideal kind of trips for apartments

As one of the tales you gave us recounts, staying in an apartment allows you to plan your meals and to eat healthier as a result: a good idea is to look for a nearby supermarket on the first day and to do a healthy food shop… but then you get hooked on the local food and end up having to give the fresh stuff to neighbours!

Speaking of neighbours, many of your stories tell how living with locals gives you the chance to get to know local customs and traditions, and to even be invited to birthdays and other colourful celebrations.

We have really enjoyed reading your stories about your stays in apartments. Some of them seem incredible; with one apartment stay even demonstrating an adventurous personality being rewarded by fate: years after losing touch with an old flame due to long distance, the apartment rented by our friend for her holiday (we´ll call her Laura) ended up being in the same block as his! They bumped into each other in the lift and… let´s just say all those rooms weren´t needed!

However, there are things that hotels offer that you miss: the daily care, maintenance and cleaning of rooms. We´re continuing to work hard and innovate so that this is no longer a problem! What would you like for us to do to fix it?


Summer has arrived to Buenos Aires!


Summer in Buenos Aires

There´s one season of the year in which there is a special air about Buenos Aires, and that season is summer. The hustle and bustle usually found in the city transforms during these warmer months, slowing down and leaving the city with a more relaxed feel about it.

You can already notice it in the streets, where, while still fairly crowded, the numbers of passer-bys have started to drop. Many of the city´s residents flock to nearby coastal towns to take a break from work and enjoy the beautiful beaches, while many others opt to stay and take advantage of what the country´s capital has to offer, despite the soaring heat that will be felt between December and March.

The woodlands in Palermo (found in Av. Libertador and Av. Sarmiento) are the most popular destinations at this time of year. During this peak season, the woods are filled with young people having picnics, people in their deck chairs sharing mate with their friends or basking in the sun, teenagers exercising on skates or bikes, and couples of all ages taking a walk amongst the shadows cast by the variety of trees that make up this beautiful landscape.

Typical Argentinean beverage mate is a tea usually served hot, but still continues to be a popular drink despite the warm weather. It is possible to find a cold version called tereré, also a mixture of fruit juices that, when combined with the mate herb, gives it a very distinctive taste and refreshing quality.

To accompany these beverages, Argentineans prefer sweet, flour-based snacks such as pastries, churros (fried dough rolls usually filled with a sweet custard or cream and sprinkled with sugar) or cubanitos (hard dough rolls filled with custard cream). Those that prefer a more salty taste opt for biscochos de grasa (cupcakes made typically from the fat of cows).

The country´s population is made up of a high percentage of descendants of Italian immigrants that arrived between 1880 and 1910. This is important when you picture summer in these parts and their inherited love for ice cream.  Many companies that produce it come from these origins and have adapted to local tastes by offering a variety of flavours and portions a lot larger than those normally served on the ‘old continent’.

At night you can enjoy a picada with a cold beer (as is the custom) in one of the many and diverse eateries to be found. They are usually presented on a wooden board, served with a variety of cheeses (Pategrás and Gouda being the most popular) and accompanied by an array of sausages such as salmines and chorizos secos. The plate is finished off with green or black olives, salted or shelled peanuts and slices of bread. This option doesn´t replace dinner, but rather comes before it. Taken from its name, picar (to nibble) or picotear (to peck at), it means to nibble on something small in the same way a bird would, reducing your appetite while you wait for the main meal which will fully satisfy your hunger.

To walk through the city during its most peaceful season really is a joy to behold. Without being distracted by hordes of people filling the streets, you can fully appreciate it´s impressive European-style architecture, allowing you to relax, contemplate and catch a glimpse into the slower paced lifestyle of its inhabitants, if only for a few minutes. You can always start to look for somewhere a bit busier if you want (remember than Buenos Aires doesn´t stop just because a lot of people have left to enjoy their holidays), while those who find themselves in quieter surroundings can adapt to see whatever they want on any given day.  Undoubtedly a great opportunity to get to know another side of this metropolis.


Argentina through neighboring eyes


Argentina

Argentina is hugely popular amongst visitors from its neighboring countries. Here we will discuss just some of the things that are a proving a big attraction for such visitors.

When we think about what might be the main attraction, one of the first words that springs to mind is football. Argentineans are extremely passionate about football, to that point that you´ll find people playing it day and night in all cities and towns across the country. There are lots of clubs, as well as professional fields and ´Five-a-side´ (a version with fewer players and a shorter playing time).

Going to a football match is a spectacle in itself, while the football schools found in the capital are renowned for their high class coaching and producing players of international quality.

The Tango is another big draw for visitors. This unique and seductive music almost shrouds the dance floor in a cloak mystery, tempting even those who have no experience to give it a try.

Several variations of this musical genre can be heard today, from your typical orchestras to little groups playing classic guitar, right through to the increasingly popular ´electronic Tango´.

Continuing on with the arts, the film industry in Argentina has seen a huge surge in recent years, both in the number and quality of films produced. For example, ´El secreto de sus ojos´ won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film in 2010. Since then Buenos Aires and other urban areas have been and continue to be host to several film festivals, seminars and conferences, all with big names in attendance.

The city of Buenos Aires is also home to a number of important museums. Whether it be history or art, collections of high cultural importance are exhibited throughout the whole year, attracting many visitors.

As for the food, the meat produced in Argentina is top quality as the bovine cattle are fattened through grazing. We only have to travel through the country to see the vast amounts of land dedicated to this, as well as the amount of animals bred especially for this purpose. Hereford and Holando-Argentina are the most common breeds of cattle. They can be found at just about any restaurant, and at a low price due to them being readily available and produced. The most typical way it is prepared is ´Asado´ (roasted), in which the meat is cooked over a wood fire for several hours, and accompanied by red wine. This is followed by Argentina´s most traditional dessert ´pastelito´, a fried pastry filled with quince paste.

From a geographical point of view, the country has an extensive land area, made up of many different landscapes. From the Cataratas del Iguazú in the north, to the Glaciar Perito Moreno in the south, passing through the Ruinas de San Ignacio and the beaches of Buenos Aires province, as well as many more in between. There are so many different views to be seen all on the same trip.

A final point of interest in the eyes of its neighbors is that Argentina, since the 2001 crisis, has managed to achieve and maintain a certain level of economic stability and job security for its workers. This ability to bounce back from adversity is also a common characteristic found in the Argentinean personality, something that is an attractive quality in the eyes of foreigners. A popular phrase often heard is: “lo atamos con alambre” (literally “we tie it with wire”), which refers to the action of seeking solutions to problems, even if they are nothing more than the most sensible and basic starting points.

Due to the above reasons, as well as others, many people choose Argentina as their place to live, integrating themselves into the current society. This only adds further to a culture distinguished by the mixing of several other social backgrounds, and which date back to colonial times.

For its landscape, sports, cultural expressions, cuisine, and its people, Argentina is very much worth the visit.
