Blu makes excellent gelato and ice cream. Unfortunately they only have three locations, two in Barranco and one in San Isidro. Hopefully they will open more in the future.

The best ice cream shop in Lima! Real fruits, creamy, taste wonderful and the staff is super friendly. Worth a quick stop for a treat.

The ice cream here was good. Try the lucuma flavor. Lucuma is a typical Peruvian fruit. The staff was friendly and price was reasonable.

Here you can find the classic ice-cream flavors (chocolate, vanilla, etc.) but also some amazing Peruvian ones, like; passion fruit, granadilla, choconibs, brazil nuts, and many others!
