Visiting La Cumbrecita, Cordoba + Eating German Food in Argentina


well good morning guys morning welcome
to little slice of paradise here in Argentina where are we we’re in La Cumbrecita La Cumbrecita in the province of Cordoba I’m a little
being here I’m not used to the altitude or all we’re also hiking at the moment
again yeah we did so yeah it’s O about 1500 meters here
were up in the mountains in the valley of kalamu cheetah yes this is the town
where I went to school as a child yeah so it feels familiar in some ways yet I
didn’t really explore or do a whole lot of hiking when I was in this area no and
I remember you were saying that the town is really exploded and yes in terms of
development since you were last here lots of new businesses lots of new
people living here today it’s got a plan of action two things we want to do
number one hike yep visit a few different lookout points and get
beautiful views of the whole area and number two food there’s a lot of like
German Swiss inspired cow and that’s really popular in this area and it seems
to be what most restaurants specialize in yeah so after a bit of hiking we’re
gonna go get some food honestly today is a bit of a late start to the day we had
breakfast at 10:00 so we need some exercise or exercise before we work up
lunch so we are now arriving at the lookout
point it’s called mirador de cristo chico or
lookout little Christ eighty meters off the main road not too difficult so one thing to mention here is the
beautiful weather on the summer day I actually checked the weather online
before we left and it said the maximum was gonna be 21 degrees and it’s January
it’s February February just try be area right now yeah and what’s nice as the
Sun is peeking through the clouds but it’s also we’re getting a lot of cloud
cover as well and there’s a light breeze this is perfect for walking I started
off with the fleece now your inanity t-shirt and who knows you might be
putting on the fleece again at some point our next stop the cutest little chapel
you ever did see it’s up there this is what it looks like right now we have stopped for a quick
break to catch our breaths at blasted us beyond arrows which means Pioneer Square
and they have lots of really cool wood sculptures all over town and there’s one
just behind us with two little owls oh yeah check out the workmanship on this
one it’s got like these roses and Ivy carved into the tree trunks pretty cool
Sam is very impressed by the tree trunks you see here kind of mesmerized by them
they look ancient ancient looks like something out of like a haunted movie or
something so another really cool thing about this town is that it’s pedestrian
only so you may see a few cars in town but only people who live here are
allowed to actually drive them in if you’re visiting you have to leave your
car out in this massive parking lot at the entrance of town and then they bring
you in by bus or you can walk down the hill it’s a very short walk well yeah
that gives this place a very peaceful tranquil feel like you can just roam
down the dirt roads and walk around for hours really and there are hardly any
vehicles so yeah a beautiful place for hiking enjoying nature we’re just
surrounded by trees and forests and flowers people really take care of their
gardens here so you have so many different flowers in bloom and
everything is just perfectly manicured so yeah we’re enjoying this little walk
here so that was the chapel founded in the
year 1967 I actually remember coming to church
there as a kid a handful of times sometimes the service was in Spanish
sometimes it was elf Deutsch yes it’s really cool to see it they’re still
standing it really is beautiful from the exterior and yeah it’s very cozy inside
you can only fit a few people sometimes people would stand outside to listen to
part of the service yeah we’re continuing our walk through
town still panting here I think it’s going to take long words and upwards so
take me a few days to get used to this we’ve been stuffing ourselves with
parrisha pizza with empanadas pakoras up ahora so you know rudder shape this is
exactly what we need burn the belly the plan today the German food so we
have arrived at a restaurant called the squat Orientis the four winds this is
one of the few restaurants that doesn’t have a German name here most of them do
have German names and yeah lots of German dishes we’re gonna order two then
two German desserts oh yeah yeah German beers but is the plan and Sam is going
to update us on the status of his finger which he nearly lost the only new family
and a very valuable lesson today oh my gosh guys okay so I was flying the
drone I mean Diaz bringing it back to me I
just got a new one it’s a really tiny one called the DJI spark it’s this
little tiny and cute I was just getting a little bit cocky I was just like
reaching up to grab it I miscalculated because of the wind it kind of I think
it actually came either one above her down I can’t remember because I’m just
like in shock that the boy he’d sliced up with my thumb and that blood was just
going everywhere is like flowing like a river yeah I thought I was gonna need
stitches it was a deep cut but not deep enough for that so yeah I got a really
lucky I could’ve like sliced off my thumb or something else I don’t know it
was scary I’ve never seen so much blood on the ground and we had to wrap it with
stalk Hardy she took off of her foot which is gross it was the only thing
that I could put fresh around it and it was over 15 or 20 minute walk and
there’s a little local ambulance and fortunately there was a really kind
nurse who you know disinfected it wrapped it up in this nice bandage as
you can see and yeah that was a unexpected event and so we’re having
lunch and three when we had probably planned on having it at around 1:30 so
that’s what happened eventful day with Samuel Jeffrey cheers
to say I’m keeping his finger nice to have a full set of fingers and toes
whatever is good we got two beers artisanal beers burg Roy
and mine is the chop which is 350ml yes I got the honey one yours is called Buda
which is a pint 500ml right yeah half a liter and yours
is the red yep we also got a little bit of bread so we have toasted bread on
fresh bread with a little dip oh looks like a garlicky a garlicky butter and
heard try some for us already you’ve been
munching away off-camera those beers I’ve been helping myself and it’s good I
haven’t tried any of it as per usual we are snacking on this until the mains
arrive this is really good bread beer you could honestly be a meal
in and of itself lately carb heavy huh how’s that red oh
my gosh guys that beer is refreshing and after my war wound you know I feel like
I deserve one maybe I’ll even have another one hole leader of cerveza
leader of beer to numb my pain no actually guys it’s not it’s not Sur
anymore it was sore for like the first hour and the the medical attendant is
such a good job of like wrapping it up putting applying pressure so I feel
totally fine the food is here it is a feast look at the size of this massive
portion this is what they call the the German dish we call this the German dish
not doluma and we have some smoked pork yeah we have choucroute which is a lot
like sauerkraut yeah I’m with like little bits of ham here it’s basically a
fermented cabbage it’s delicious mhm if we turn the dish over we have a sausage
this one’s called a Canuck forest and it has Kanak in front of it because that’s
the sound it makes when you bite into it Connect connect connect connect all the
juices yeah this skin gives it a crunch a thick skin what else in there and we
have some sauteed potatoes with parsley a little bit of pepper and we have some
mustard and this all just looks really wonderful Sam and I are gonna share
these dishes and yeah I’m just very happy seeing this food in front of me
I’m so hungry I’m trying oh I’ve dug in no problem no problem oh it’s wonderful
I can tell you already the pork meat is so tender mm-hmm
it just kind of melts in your mouth it’s wonderful with mustard
I’m just so good and it’s such a generous piece of me like it’s a thick
slice big hunk big chunk of ham basically basically the other thing you
have a gigantic sausage – yeah little bits of bacon in there yep
and the sausage this is meat hobbies – different well look at the juices coming
out typical German food here that’s what you find in looking vicita it’s also
good isn’t it I’m gonna save a bit for you thank you – it is it’s on your plate my gosh it looks good
sometimes you get goulash in it’s kind of runny and skimpy little pieces of
meat but check out the big chunks it’s hard and it is hard even this is the
kind of food you eat after you go home for a walk for a long time and when you
know when you sucks up when your fingers you do you thing to have makes it all
better well better so the spatula it’s um it’s
like a hand rolled noodle yes it has a funny little shape there handy needs and
I’ve had them kind of cleaned before I’ve had them with cheese mm-hmm and
they go really well the goulash it’s like a nice car option that you can have
with you with your goulash oh yeah I had forgotten we’ve had lots of spatula in
Germany and Austria it was like melted cheese on top guys meat is so tender oh
my gosh that warrants another bite how have you been enjoying the food in this
area because we’ve been in this part of the court a lot of three days now loving
the food here and just in general I’m getting fat in Argentina and food is ooh
good I can’t control myself guys oh the car we love our cards with all the carbs
in the world here don’t look beer all right our jury time for you to try the
goulash I think you’re gonna like this a lot this is my third plate of goulash
that I’m having since we arrived in Argentina I’m not tired of it yet no I
know because every where does it a little bit differently though I know
these two these two things are made for each other the goulash and the spatula
I’m very filling but we want to see a room for dessert because we saw two
different German desserts on the menu that we really want to try trying to
exercise self-control here but it’s so hard like these plates are gonna be
empty in a matter of minutes I know mm-hmm there’s gonna be no
self-control after all soft control so cool to be able to share such such a
great meal isn’t it yeah imagine if you were traveling solo you wouldn’t get to
try everything on the menu I know you have to pick one or the other what a
lucky man to be married the benefits of being married I’m a foodie in tow so this is like the
smoked ham um dip a bit here in the master I love that make sense let’s try
this Erica aka that’s approved it’s gonna get first swim I was bad so good
so juicy dessert time guys we ordered two beautiful cakes allow me to present
to you my goodness are the huge the up for Corrin
yeah which is lemon flavored cake and then you have some apples and like
crumbly bits that are made with butter and sugar and then you have icing sugar
on top the other one this one is called the commission itten yep which is kind
of like a phyllo pastry almost and it has a custard and then it has a
raspberry jam another layer of the pastry and then like sugary glaze over
top look at that so crumbly so moist got raisins got
apples freshly made today this is actually a new dessert for me
I knew the absolute cuckoo but I’ve never tried this one before this is
really nice and the raspberry jam is sweet yet tart and then you have the
glaze on top gives it a bit of a unique kick with the raspberry huh yeah it’s
just a really nice combination the only thing missing would be like a
cup of tea or coffee but we feel that yes here but yeah this
has been a wonderful place if you ever come to goodness eat them los cuatro
Vientos is the name of this restaurant yeah first time eating here but very
very impressed we’ll be back again wonderful wonderful
meal beyond stuff
the total for that two massive mains with lots of miik two beers two desserts
it came to 1025 argentine pesos which is the equivalent of 27 US dollars so all
in all I would say not bad because we really did not need all that food we
could have easily shared a main but yeah it was delicious the service was great
and yeah like I said before we would highly recommend that place are you cozy pup are you gonna have a
siesta muscle it’ll mean so this section of trail were on is
called Bosque acetyl bajo which means lower forest it’s a bit of like a little
shortcut or like a side street in the town and it’s a lot darker and wetter

    Laughed at 5:18 when Audrey is talking about how well manicured the town and walks past a half finished piece of graphitti. 😄 Also laughed at the name of the restaurant, wondering if they had four different types of sauerkraut that sets the "winds" a blowing. Laughed a bit less at the drone accident. I thought all the DGIs came with guards around the props. 🤔 None of drone footage made the final "cut" for the video? 😅

  4. Barb N.

    Oh man… the drone and the finger… 🤪
    Just get rid of it. I have to say I usually stop to watch any video when I notice drone footage.

    Get well soon, Sam.

    After having read some comments, I want to explain something about my country. There are many people in Argentina with German ancestry. I myself am an Argentinian descendant of Germans who immigrated to South America. It is commonplace here in Argentina. Maybe there are more Spanish and Italian descendants, but still there are other ethnic groups such as Swiss, Russian, Polish, Ukrainian, French, Welsh, Japanese and Arab descendants.
    By the way, I loved this video! I need to visit La Cumbrecita ASAP.

  6. Keith Gardner

    Hitler and many of his henchman reputedly fled to Argentina after the fall of Berlin in WW2. I wonder if this has anything to do with the German food etc.?

  7. Paul Schneider

    A little Bavaria in Argentina. Started as a small hamlet for German expatriots to hide out in. And why did the Argentinians so love the Nazis in the 50’s?

  8. Tina Strelau

    My dad and his family fled Germany to argentina for a few years while waiting for their immigration paperwork to allow them to enter the US to clear.

  9. Nathalie Savoie

    This is making me hungry!! 🙂 Chucrut is called choucroute in French and is pronounced the same as you said it. 🙂 Didn't know that…

  10. Serge. Crispino

    Bahahaha – thick piece of meat – such a thick skin – you have such a big sausage – too funny guys !! Now please get a room and work all of those calories off for goodness sake. Subliminal Samuel is eager to please by the sounds of it. Bahahahahaha

  11. Wolters World

    Funny thing. I studied in Argentina back in college and we had our intro week near cordoba and I spoke way more german than I did spanish that week. Probably near where you all were.

  12. Roland Tuason

    A nice piece of ham steak, spicy mustard, sauerkraut, grilled knackwurst sausage, scallop potatoes then a plate of spaetzel and peppered beef stroganoff or if you want, you can have beef goulash or beef paprika which is also good. Then you can also have pork schnitzel with potatoe dumplings with gravy sauce.

  15. Chris Kennedy

    Oh man, don't loose your digits mate. I was watching something the other day they made a stick to attach to the drone to make it easier to catch. Think it's this one https://youtu.be/mM_dogC2btY.
