For the average Argentine household, breakfast consists of tea, Mate, or coffee, and is accompanied with pastries. The most popular is “la media ”, aka croissant. But the concept of bacon, eggs, and pancakes early in the morning seems to be a difficult concept for Argentines to stomach.
Lunch is usually a heavier meal than in the United States. The only exception to this is if you’re a student or have a really hectic schedule. Then you’ll find yourself sampling fast food restaurants left and right.
Tea time (which they call ) is around 5 p.m., and is also accompanied with an assortment of pastries.
Dinner is served anywhere from 8 to 10 p.m., and is usually a lighter meal, though not always, and this varies among provinces too.
