Blu: the neighborhood gelato
In 2014, friends Laura and Nicolás decided to venture to open Blu, a space dedicated to traditional Italian ice cream. For both, a space dedicated to artisanal ice creams was needed, offering an interesting variety of milk-based gelatos and water-based sorbettos.
Thus, in February 2015, they opened their first store located in Barranco. Currently this venue, one of three, is one of the spaces most visited by visitors to the district during the summer. They offer ice creams prepared with ingredients from different provinces of the country, as well as with imported ingredients, all of good quality.
Precisely, Provecho visited this space that offers a variety of 16 flavors, among which 2 to 6 are usually sorbettos. Among these flavors we can find maracumango, one of the favorites; lemon, strawberry and blueberries and granadilla. Among the ice cream flavors we can find coffee, stracciatella, choconibs, gianduia and the classic chocolate.

Cream of the Cream
This ice cream parlor arose as an idea between three friends, who were cooks and wanted to bet on artisan ice creams and desserts. Thus, in 2013 they began to create Crem dela Crem, a brand whose main store is located in the Parque Municipal de Barranco, in a historic mansion in the district and is pet friendly.
Without a doubt, it is one of the brands that experiments the most with different flavors and inspirations. Thus, they created a menu that includes everything from the most classic gelato and sorbetto flavors, such as chocolate and strawberry, to complex and interesting creations such as pineapple and lemon verbena sorbetto -our favorite- or cheesecake ice cream.
In their menu they also include some ice cream options sweetened with stevia, such as berries. In addition, they offer desserts such as kekes, chocolate cake, carrot cake, lemon pie, and cookies, among others.
