What do they eat at the End of the World?
Even the southern territory of Patagonia, whose gorgeous but sometimes desolate landscape does not suggest culinary delights, has dishes that add to the rich texture of the countryâ€™s national cuisine.
Like the rest of Argentina, here you will find food with strong Italian and Spanish influences. However, populated by Welsh settlers seeking autonomy from the British in 1865, the traditionally Welsh province of Chubut has also preserved some dishes worth a try. Particularly popular is the Torta Galesa, a cake made with raisins and brown sugar.
Welsh tearooms are a specialty of Patagonia, offering affordable tea services that include black tea, cakes, breads, scones, jams, and finger sandwiches. Tour groups coming from Puerto Madryn often stop at these tea-houses after going to Punto Tombo, the largest penguin colony in South America.
