Hungry in Buenos Aires? Learn how to order medialunas like a local.

Make sure you specify the kind of medialunas you’d like. These croissantlike pastries are a café breakfast staple, and come in two types: de grasa, which tend to be a little drier and skinnier but have a very delicate, mellow taste, and de manteca, which are plump, moist, sweet, and, like all good things, come in threes.
