What are Medialuna?

Medialuna is an Argentine pastry that resembles the French croissant. Medialuna literally means ‘half moon’ owing to their crescent shape. Like croissants, medialunas are buttery and flaky, however medialunas are smaller and sweeter than croissants. Medialunas are a morning staple for locals, so join the local scene while in Buenos Aires and try one. This tasty treat can be found at most corner stores and street stalls around the city.
