Fitz Roy 2110 , Fitz Roy 2110, Buenos Aires, Argentina

The restaurant is located in Fitz Roy 2110, next to the carwash!

This activity will end right where it started.
This unique interactive dining experience starts with your arrival at the location, at which point you'll receive a Malbec wine-based cocktail and meet your fellow foodie travelers.

Suit up in an apron and chef hat, and then learn how to close traditional Argentine empanadas using different 'repulga' techniques. After, sit down to a dinner consisting of food from all four corners of the country, including bife de lomo, arguably Argentina's best steak. The food served varies, but might include famous culinary exports like chorizo and grilled provoleta cheese, and is paired expertly with four varietals of wine.

Finish by learning how to make your own mate, a traditional tea drink that has its own ritual, etiquette, and history, which you'll enjoy with alfajores, the typical Argentine dessert.

Mixology Option:

Enter the “aroma room” to test your olfactory senses, learning how to identify wine based on its smell with the guidance of a sommelier. Accompanied by gourmet appetizer pairings, you'll learn to create wine-based cocktails using red wine, white wine and rosé. Then, choose your favorite and mix yourself a large glass to take to dinner with you.

Smashing experience! Great food, great wine, and hugely entertaining! The staff here are warm, friendly, and hugely engaging! This is also an excellent experience for solo travelers. Would recommend this trip early on in your visit, as one of the highlights of the evening is hearing from other travelers about their favorite discoveries in BA. Both food and wine are top-notch and the dinner offers the chance to try Argentine appetizers you may not come across in the pizza/pasta-dominated restaurants of BA. Note there is no sign declaring the location of this event! If arriving by uber/taxi, it is located on a nondescript corner and you have to ring the bell to enter! Look at the photos on Google to familiarize yourself with the location (the tour description of being "next to the carwash" is useless by the time you arrive in the winter (the carwash is closed by dark and there is NO sign declaring the carwash location; look for the "La Barrera 1980" sign OPPOSITE the Osaka Restaurante (not the one beside it as there are two! Also directly behind you will be a MexiKiosco store if you standing on the right corner).
