We all scream for ice cream in Argentina
The warm and occasionally humid weather in Buenos Aires, Argentina, may make the city the perfect destination for a tropical vacation, but it also means travelers will likely have to find some refreshing activities they can use to cool off. Luckily for these adventurers, ice cream and gelato areÂ a large part of Argentinean culture, and as such theseÂ delectable treats areÂ the perfect snackÂ forÂ travelers whoÂ need to take a break from their explorations around Buenos Aires.Â
A large Italian influence on the city’s culture has contributed to some amazing frozen treats. WhetherÂ you enjoy the dense textures of gelato or the airy freshness of traditional ice cream, you can find parlors throughout Buenos Aires that showcase some of the best flavors the city has to offer. And with all of the walking you’ll probably be doing as you set out to see the major sights around the city, you won’t even have to feel guilty about indulging in some tasty snacks.Â
Once you touch down in Buenos Aires, chances are you won’t be able to miss spotting popular chains like Freddo around town. The chain has more than 30 parlors sprinkled throughout the city, giving locals and visitors plenty of chances to try creations like its banana split. For another franchise experience, check out Persicco, which has 10 outlets in the metropolis and uses a heavy dose of chocolate in many of its top flavors.Â
Want to try some ice cream that will taste out of this world? Then head to Un AltraÂ Volta, a parlor that uses futuristic decorations to complement its sweet menu items. Options like “dulce de leche”Â or “chocolate amargo” mix rich dark chocolates with milky caramel flavors for what will feel like an out of body experience. Whether you’re in the mood for ice cream or would rather try the eatery’s coffee and handmade chocolates, Un Altra Volta provides the perfect place to gather with a few travel companions and swap stories about your South American adventures.Â
A one-of-a-kind dining experience can be found at places like Cadore, located in the city center. The shop is one of the oldest in the area, having opened in 1957, but its roots trace back even farther to the family’s humble beginnings in northern Italy in the late 19th century. Cadore tends to stick to classic flavors, including delicious dulceÂ de leche.Â
