In most parts of Argentina, lunch is the biggest meal of the day. Most of the cities (excluding Buenos Aires) close for lunch time. This is when most people return home to enjoy a large meal. Traditional lunches in Argentina are long and well developed. Most of the popular food has European roots. Lots of meat, pasta and bread are included in an Argentinian diet.
