Ice Cream

There are good ice cream shops in Buenos Aires: Freddo, Persicco, Un'altra volta and Chungo. But I think Chungo has the best ice cream! I would recommend the "dulce de leche bombon" flavour. One of their shops is close to the Obelisco.

A great ice cream spot nicely located near one of the busiest Avenue in Belgrano neighborhood. The sitting area is rather cramped but the wide selection of flavors meets the best standards in the Argentinean ice cream industry and Chungo is one of the best. The area can be a bit noisey especially during the afternoons and if you go... More

Chungo is one of the best ice-cream chain restaurants in Buenos Aires. It has a very wide variety of flavors and has lately included coffee and pastries to its menu . Some flavor are kosher and others are clear specialities such as Gianduia or Nicoletta Avellana or Capuccino Granizatta. My favourites, no doubt, are the chocolate mousse, the white chocolate...

This ice cream shop was located across the street from our hotel and we visited it on various occasions to try some of their amazing ice cream!

I've just returned to Buenos Aires from a 15 day tour around Argentina. I owe Tripadvisor a BUNCH of reviews of the great places we ate, stayed and played. However, today while running errands, I just HAD to stop in and have some ice cream (it's hot down here!). In 3+ months, I haven't succumbed to the ice cream fervor... More

The ice cream here is really creamy, and you can really taste the ingredients! Dulce de leche is great, as are the various chocolate options. But my favorite is definitely the maracuya mousse! The prices are on the high end for ice cream in Buenos Aires, but definitely worth it!
