Buenos Aires has some of the finest ice cream shops in the world and the competition among them is very intense. There are loads of small, independent heladerias to discover. But this upscale chain that serves gelato is currently the leader of the pack (although you’d be well-served to test out Persiccos and Freddos as well). Some of the best options include the dulce de leche with brownie, or the local favorite, sambayón (egg yolks, sugar, and sweet wine). Altra Volta has eight locations across the city. This one is in conveniently located in the heart of Recoleta.
