Typical food of Buenos Aires City, Argentina
There are some very famous wines that were made by the Jesuits in Alta Gracia and produced in La Costa, which are sometimes mixed with soda (mineral water). "Yerba mate" is a herb consumed in all Argentina; it is boiled and served as coffee or tea, you can add milk or sugar to improve its bitter taste.
