  • Meat dominates Argentina's menus, and 'meat' means beef. Mixed grills (parrillada) are apparently the way to go, serving up a cut of just about every part of the animal: tripe, intestines, udders
  • The sharing of mate, Paraguayan tea, is a ritual more than a beverage, and if offered is a special expression of acceptance
