Argentina

If meat and wine are your two favorite staples, consider taking a trip to Argentina. Argentinian beef is considered some of the best in the world. Because Argentine cattle is grass fed rather than grain fed like the majority of American cattle, the meat has a better flavor and is even more easily digested. And beef is usually charcoal grilled, on a parilla. Other parts of the animal are also cooked up and enjoyed, like ribs or sausages.

An Italian influence infiltrates many Argentine foods as well -- most notably, pizza. Argentina harvests a large amount of wheat, so you'll find a lot of dough-based dishes. Pizzas tend to be doughier than their Italian counterparts, with a minimal amount of sauce.
