Bread

One of my favorite things about spending time in Argentina, that I miss in the US, is the preponderance of bakeries. They typically bake most every variation of bread you can think of, from empanadas (tiny calzones ubiquitous in Argentina), pizza crust and calzones, to little cookies and all sorts of pastries that don't have an international equivalent. The most common and popular product is the medialuna, a heavier, smaller version of a croissant. There is one bakery called El Sabor Artesanal that takes the medialuna to another level, offering both the normal and monster variations! See the latter in the photo.



To top off a trip to a bakery, of course one needs to go to an all-you-can-eat buffet, so we all went to PorteƱo Gourmet in Buenos Aires' fancy district, Puerto Madero, to celebrate Diego's grandma Ema's birthday. She loves to go places, so together we gave her a trip arranged through Let's Go Viajes, Diego's sister Romina's travel agency. Let's Go has helped us plan and reserve parts of our trip too; it's so lucky to have a travel agent in a family who all like to travel.
