It was one of my neighbors who pointed me towards this place. He told me that every once in a while his grandmother and his aunt used to make a special visit to get the best ice cream in the city. The chosen place was always La Especial de París.
This shop has been in the hands of the Lozada family since 1929 and still uses natural ingredients to make all of their ice cream, from a classic vanilla to a mint candy flavor. Be sure to try Flor de amor, if only to see the beautiful presentation. It is made of yogurt ice cream, mango, strawberry, cherry sauce, almonds, and meringue, all arranged to form a flower.
