Refreshing Cremoladas - Iced Water :) Mar 16, 2008
Mmm, I don't know about you, but when I'm really thirsty the ice creams seem not to be the most helpful. Usually the best is just water, so what can be better than a delicious Iced Water - or as we call it here: Cremolada!
This place is small, but it's always full. There are cars parking in front of this house. You find the tables at the garage. I haven't even heard about this place until a friend asked me: don't you want to have a "cremolada" from THE place of cremoladas? So we went.
Once I met the widow of the Yugoslavian man who grounded this place. It was opened 60 years ago in Tumbes, a city in the north where is always hot. But there were too many rains, so they moved to Lima. For almost 30 years they have been working in Miraflores.
They have so many flavors! Usually you'll find just 2 or 3 in the other places, but here you find different fruits like: passion fruit, carambola, camu camu, tumbo (these 3 are sour), guanabana, lucuma, chirimoya (really sweet), strawberry, grape and even pina colada, among many more :)
And you can try all of them before buying anyone.
If you like the tropical fruits and are tired of the regular ice creams, visit this place. You won't be dissapointed.
