5411 Empanadas

What better way to celebrate Argentina’s big win than with some empanadas? With locations all over Chicago, including the Argentine Connection pop-up, Evanston, Southport, and Wicker Park, 5411 Empanadas is sure to hit the right spot. Don’t forget to try 5411’s famous Chimichurri and red hot sauce! 

Folklore & Tango Sur

Folklore is an Argentine grill that has been around for over twenty years. With their first location being Tango Sur, this team has now established a brand that highlights the roots of Argentinian immigrants. Recognized as the “best Argentine Steakhouse in town”, this restaurant is definitely one you will want to dine in, especially after Argentina’s big FIFA World Cup win!

The Argentinians have the reputation for their love of eating. Social gatherings are commonly centered on sharing a meal. Sunday family lunch is considered the most significant meal of the week, whose highlights often include asado or pasta. The most common condiment for asado is Chimichurri, a sauce of herbs, garlic and vinegar. Unlike other preparations, Argentines do not include chili in their version of chimichurri. And then there’s the tango of course, the music and lyrics (often sung in a form of slang called lunfardo), is Argentina’s musical symbol.

Aside from meats, Folklore also serves on of the most distinguished wine collections Chicago has to offer. We are pretty sure Lionel Messi would approve!
