A friend of mine from work Huihui arrived this morning. She joined me on this trip spontaneously when I told her. It’s her first time in Argentina so I recommended her to visit Calafate and Ushuaia as well. She arrived today and leave tomorrow morning for Calafate for a 4 day trip.
I walked along Av. Santa Fe and then Puerto Madero. It was a really nice day, blue sky and sunny. Since it was her first meal, I took her to have meat at Rodizio, where Star and I first meet in 2001.
After we sit down, the waiter served warm empanadas. I had one with tuna and she had one with meat.
They have a buffet as salad so I made one for me with greens, tomato, palm heart, beets and octopus, olive and balsamic.
it was so fresh and delicious that I went back for another plate right away.
I had two wheat rolls
and Huihui had some warm farm bread
and then meat started to came. I had my favorite cut: tira de asado!
there were a big variety of cuts of beef, lamb, fish, sausages. Huihui tried them all
I only had tira de asado and a small piece of chicken. I enjoyed them both but I know I can’t digest too much of them.
Finally, we had our dessert: mine was a coffee semifreddo.
here we are at Rodizio, full and happy! 🙂
At night, Mara, Gunther and I went to Mara’s father’s place for dinner.
A big spread of starters
and the entree was a wrap with chicken and vegetables filling. It’s the argentinean version of tacos. Very good, I had two.
Once we came back… more chatting and wandering at the apartment until we went to sleep at midnight again. 🙂 I used to think I need to go to bed before 10 pm, but actually I don’t need to! I can perfectly function well until midnight if I’m well-accompanied!
