A unique and different culinary experience in Iguazú, inspiring and willing to enrich travellers experience by showing and tasting our gastronomy.
The Argentine Experience slogan is “Argentine culture, international perspective” and it truly represents it based upon a dinner party concept that involves teaching about Argentine culture and cooking, eating, wine tasting and having fun in the company of other guests from all over the world.
The idea behind this exclusive culinary service is to offer a different and original experience: the guest not only goes out to dinner but also gets to understand the local culture and gastronomy. The Argentine Experience proposes to maximize a trip to Argentina with good food, local knowledge, fun and interaction with other people in a relaxed atmosphere.
The Argentine Experience announces their opening in Puerto Iguazú from November onwards, so everybody that goes visit the Iguazú Falls will get to participate of this fun and unique event on this new location.
Located in the downtown of Puerto Iguazú, the restaurant’s aesthetic will be very similar to the one in Buenos Aires, with a rustic and elegant style and design details such as wood and stone combinations, providing a warm and inviting environment.
The original menu has been planned by Irish chef Edward Holloway and the experience is divided in different stages in between dishes and entertainment. After a welcome cocktail and snack, there is a cooking demostration where dinner guests will learn to prepare and close their own empanadas using the repulgue technique. Then, enjoy a typical Argentine picada with grilled provoleta cheese, sliced chorizo sausage and pork flank steak. The main course is a 250 g tenderloin that has been dried cured for 24 hs and mashed potatoes. For the sweet taste, the classic and regional queso y dulce and the evening will end making alfajores, our national treat.
Specially selected wines are chosen to enhance the dining experience, including a Torrontés from Salta and a Blend and a Malbec from Valle de Uco in Mendoza.
Besides the delicious dishes, the highlights of the evening include the most creative empanada contest, a cultural introduction to Argentine hand gestures and a lesson about history and etiquette of mate tea.
There is no doubt that by the end of the soirée guests to The Argentine Experience will not only be satisfied but also have huge smiles on their faces after having such a great time and learning everything there is to know about our culture and culinary traditions.
