Visiting MENDOZA, Argentina: Eating Argentine Pasta 🍝 + Top Attractions in Mendoza City πŸ‡¦πŸ‡·

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 bodegΓ³n, 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.

Visiting MENDOZA, Argentina: Eating Argentine Pasta 🍝 + Top Attractions in Mendoza City πŸ‡¦πŸ‡·:
Hey guys! We are Samuel and Audrey, a travel vlogging couple from Canada. In this travel channel we share our travel and food vlogs while touring the world.

We had the privilege of traveling around Argentina for nearly 3 months from January- April 2019 on a trip covering a large section of the country.

We kicked things off with several days in Buenos Aires where we were joined by Audrey’s parents eating and sightseeing around some of our favourite neighbourhoods in the city. We then flew from Buenos Aires to Cordoba where we spent a couple of weeks in the Sierras of Cordoba visiting both La Cumbrecita and Villa General Belgrano with highlights including hiking and delicious German and Swiss cuisine.

From Cordoba, we then travelled a considerable distance on an overnight bus to Mar Del Plata just in time for a special food festival called Feria Masticar featuring the best of Argentine food and wine. We spent several days enjoying beaches and seafood before heading south to Patagonia to visit the province of Chubut.

We finished visiting Patagonia with time spent in Villa La Angostura, San Martin De Los Andes and Bariloche where we enjoyed more stunning scenery and hiking. On our way back to Buenos Aires, we took the Tren Patagonia to Las Grutas before meeting up with Audrey’s dad again.

To finish off our trip in Argentina, we spent more time in the capital and later Mendoza where we got to experience wine tourism to its fullest extent. Overall, we had an amazing time travelling around Argentina having only scratched the surface of this vast and diverse country.

Overall our Argentina travel series explores cities, small towns that are off-the-beaten-path, and scenic attractions with a strong emphasis on Argentina cuisine and local culture.
