Ice cream is delivered to your door in these little containers
Food here was not what i expected. I had thought there would be more of a Latino influence but really the diet is very European.
Meat and potatoes, lots of pasta and cakes and pastries galore.

Coffee and cake is a regular pastime for many people around 5 or 6pm, as the evening meal is eaten around 10pm or later.
The day starts with coffee and pastries around 9am to 10am with a cooked lunch somewhere in between.

Bread is white but crunchy and quite full of substance.

Eating meat is an expected thing, being a vegetarian is not a popular option around here. Asado is the Argentinian BBQ, and the meat is slow cooked over hot embers. Butcher shops are everywhere in La Plata selling great hunks of steak, chicken, some pork but lamb is hard to find around this area. Cuts of meat are similar to Australia, with all the parts of the animal used for various sausages or small goods.
