CHIPI CHIPI BOMBÓN — THE SWEET TASTE OF ARGENTINA VIA ITALY

CHIPI CHIPI BOMBÓN — THE SWEET TASTE OF ARGENTINA VIA ITALY

Andrés Bezem hails from Argentina, a country famous for its fantastic steaks. Yet according to Andrés, a little-known fact about his home country is that the Italian cuisine there is superb, too. His homemade gelato, at least, is so good it makes you melt. Andrés only uses the highest quality ingredients, which is what they all say, but in this case, Chipi Chipi Bombón doesn’t always have every flavors in stock: a good sign indeed. Today, for example, pistachio and coffee are out. Not to worry — you can choose from the vegan sorbets, for example, such as lemon or pineapple-parsley. Fortunately for me, they do still have baked sweet potato and zabaglione, made from the Sicilian fortified wine Marsala. Some varieties can be enhanced with pieces of Swiss chocolate to add some bite. For those who can’t make up their mind, a sampler cup with six miniature scoops is on the menu. And if that’s not service enough, they even deliver your order of ice cream straight to your door upon request. (Text: Eva Biringer / Photos: Pamina Aichhorn)
