A few days ago in my favorite district of Lima, Barranco, I’ve made a discovery that I have to share with you all ice-cream lovers, an Ice cream shop worth of a visit in Lima if you are looking for true natural flavors artisanally produced.
My girls and mom actually saw the site first, located on the Main Park of Barranco (2 blocks away from the famous bridge of sighs) this site, with a 19th-century air, emerged. It’s called Crem de la Crem and has not just great ice-creams, also flavors of local fruits: Lucuma, passion fruit, and chirimoya and much more, a great excuse to try classic Peruvian flavors, and a fantastic treat for the little ones. Delicious tip: they are one of the few ice-cream shops in Lima the offer products for diabetics, using stevia in their recipe.
This is the yum list of flavors that you can find there:
- Amarena Chip
- Queso helado
- Uva Borgoña (grape)
- Dulce de leche
- Piña con Hierba luisa (pineapple)
- Frutos rojos (red berries)
- Granadilla con mandarina
- blueberry cheesecake
- Vainilla de madagascar
I trust a lot in my girls in terms of sweetness and flavor (they are really good at that) and they both approve it, come especially if you are traveling with kids.
After the ice-cream, you can take them to see the car train (on the corner) to make a picture, and then you can walk together to the beach. To get there is easy, go to the bridge of sighs (2 blocks away from this place, follow a pedestrian alley located on the right side of the Cityhall, just in front of you) and once there go through the pathway under the bridge, keep walking for 10 min and you will see the ocean… you can even go to a restaurant down there if you wish. The way back to your hotel is easy again, arrange a taxi with the restaurant or walk up again.
I hope you can take this recommendation if you are wondering around my favorite zone in Lima.
