1You should give more info as to how you like to travel, hostels where you'll share rooms and cook youself, or hotels w/ private bathrooms, or something inbetweeen. And what kind of restaurants, plus how fast u like to travel. Because the longer you stay each place, the lower your daily costs would be.

2Impossible to answer when you give no clue as to your travel style.
Argentina is one of the most expensive countries in South America, it can give stereotypical backpackers a heart attack if they're coming from Colombia/Peru/Ecuador/Bolivia/etc.

7well, first of all thanks for everyone who has taken some time to answer.
When i posted the question i didn't think of the kind of data i should have mentioned, sorry
I am thnking of staying one whole month in B.A. and a whole month in Uruguay, which i have been told is more xpensive than Argentina.
I am asking for a general budget of a basic lodge, a meal in a not expensive restaurant eberyday to taste most of the local cuisine and the rest of meals maybe cooking by myself in the morning or dinner.
A beer every once in a while, I, am not into clubs but sometime see the Tango scene and get one drink
What do you think?
I was thinking of some 50 or 70 USD a day keeping it low, but if i can do it on 40 it would be better.
Again it's only B.A. maybe taking a weeken in Chile but that's appart.
My budget is only for lodging, food and a move around the city with ocassional beer relax.

8By the way, paying 7.33 USD for smashed potatoes and rice versus 3.20 USD for a baqsic pizza makes me think a few people is having a lot of fun ripping foreigners off, with all due respect i prefer a basic pizza but that's not the point, the point is food prices seems to be out of order.
How about a Bife? 250 USD??
Thanks for the info Bamemory. If you can keep on posting you meal prices it will be really appreciated.

9bamemory, the official rate is 5 pesos each Dollar, 4,80 was 3 months ago,
Anyway, OP, if you follow the xcriteria of bamemory you will soon realize that it is impossible to live in Argentina for locals and tourists. People are all very poorand can´t buy anything. All the cars, notebooks, flat screens and cellphones you will see everywhere do not exist. With 70 USD you should be fine but it also depends a lot where and when. Buenos Aires is quite expensive if you don´t know ehere to go and how.Salta and the surroundings or Cordoba are cheaper. Patagonia is usually cosnidered expensive but also doable pretty cheap, specifically if you go off season, like in march
