Patagonia’s Tastiest Products
part 4: helado
The most underrated or overlooked aspect of Argentine gastronomy: helado. Helado is the delectable happy-medium—that perfect halfway point—between traditional, creamy American ice cream and dense, flavorful Italian gelato.
Many Bariloche chocolate shops, including Rapa Nui, also serve up helado. My personal favorite is Helados Jauja (pronouched “how-ha”). From the organic farms of El Bolsón come the ingredients for Jauja, and the quality is discernible in each bite: it all tastes fresh and full-flavored.
Coming on Sunday, a Patagonia Lake District Shot of the Week.
