When asked what my favorite food is, I always say breakfast (I can eat pancakes for dinner and find nothing wrong about it).
One of the things I look forward to when traveling to a foreign land, would be having what the locals eat for breakfast. Here in Argentina, the choices are slim – Media luna de maneteca or Media luna de grasa (sweet or savoury). Media lunas (half moons) are similar to French croissants, only smaller and more dense. These fracturas (pastries) are normally paired with cafe con leche or mate (Argentine tea).
I have a feeling they like to keep breakfast light because they are probably still full from last night’s dinner, which normally happens at 10pm.
