Argentinean ice cream resembles Italian gelato more than America ice cream. In the heart of San Telmo is Nonna Bianca who is run by a nonna, a tiny old woman. This is artesian ice cream with the local flavor of dulce de leche (5 different versions) and even mate (a local tea). It was a fun experience to try the ice cream but personally, I prefer Italian gelato or my favorite Mr. & Mrs. Miscellaneous ice cream from San Francisco (you must try this if you visit).
Everyone knows that the ice cream in Buenos Aires is superb, even at the big names joints. But for a more unique experience I love to go to Nonna Bianca for one-of-a-kind flavors that are uniquely Argentine, like mate cocido or fernet. The classics are also delicious, but come back often because they change. Pictured is my latest indulgence of pistachio, pisco with lemon and chocolate with cognac and cinnamon.
