Indulge in the creamiest helado

Buenos Aires is rightfully famous for its helado, or ice cream: Dense, creamy, and highly flavorful, it bears a strong resemblance to Italian gelato. Heladerías, or ice cream shops, abound in the city. Serious connoisseurs debate the relative virtues of artisan ice creams and larger gourmet purveyors like Persicco and Un' Altra Volta—both of which have branches around town—but first-time visitors to the city are usually impressed by a regular scoop of helado from the corner shop. Of particular note are the varieties made with dulce de leche and dark chocolate, fresh fruits like maracuya (passion fruit), and local favorite sambayón (a blend of whisked egg yolks, sweet wine, and sugar).
