I was inspired to write this post by a photo I stumbled upon on Flickr, by Katherine of Chicago (seen below). This intriguing photo showcases a shuttered Argentine Ice Cream store on the North Side of Chicago, named the Penguin.Apparently Argentina is quite known for its delicious ice cream, which has a style of its own. Ice cream arrived in Argentina with the many Italian immigrants, and is a direct descendent of the famous Italian gelato. Today in Buenos Aires, the streets are apparently filled with Heladerias, and dulce de leche is a popular flavor. I was eager to try some in Chicago, but The Penguin is no more. Apparently, this helado has even found its way to London. Short of going to Buenos Aires, do you know of anywhere in Chicago to try it? If I only had an ice cream maker I could make some myself.
