Can anyone give me some tips on what dishes to try while in Argentina? I"m going to be there awhile and hope to sample as much different food as possible. Let me know anything I should make sure not to miss out on and what is consists of!

A few classic items (nothing especially fancy and leaving out the obvious - all that is "asado" and "dulce de leche"):
provoleta (grilled provolone cheese wih herbs)...yummm
berengenas en escabeche (pickled eggplant - much better than it sounds in English)
...all that comes to mind at the moment (busy with work) but there is plenty more...I am sure others will add to this list.
cheers & enjoy your visit!

Also, don't forget these other classics...
. chimichurri (a sauce that goes with the asado)
. wines (Malbec in particular as Argentina is said to have the best land for growing it).

lomo is a really great tasting and tender beef cut.
It is the smaller side of the T-bone steak.
The food in Argentina is great except for blood sausage, yuk.

Argentina is famous for its different cuts of meat. As another poster mentioned above, chimichurri is sometimes used to accompany many meat dishes. One thing that is interesting is that many Argentinian dishes are essentially Italian dishes, some with their own Argentinian twist, such as the breaded milanesas which are veal parmigianas, pizza (Argentinians have their own kinds of pizza with local toppings), gelatos, pasta dishes, etc.

Any MUST-EAT at restaurants in BA, Mendoza or Iguaza that my husband and I should make a point to go to? (We aren't looking for anything too fancy.)

Try these links to two great blogs, they both have great listings and information and I have used both successfully - the wine choices are quite fantastic - if you drink!
