An ode to Buenos Aires meriendas

Yesterday, I shared with you the major food groups in Argentina. But there’s one food tradition I left — for good reason. It’s the merienda, and it deserves its own post.

I’ve fallen in love with this evening snack ritual — usually a cafe con leche and 1-3 medialunas, or croissants — that was incorporated into the Argentine diet to hold you over until their definitively late dinner time.

Sometimes I plan my day around our merienda. Sometimes I map out where next week’s meriendas will be. Sometimes they involve coffee and dessert. Sometimes they involve just dessert. Sometimes I think I’d rather have three meriendas a day than three meals a day.

So come with me on a visual tour of some of my favorite meriendas. I promise, you’ll fall for them, too.



Ultimate bliss is alone time with a banana-chocolate cake, cappuccino and a fashion/gossip magazine you don’t actually understand because it’s in Spanish
