(No website found at time of publishing) – Leon, Nicaragua

How I heard of this place: We walked by many an Eskimo in our adventures throughout Nicaragua. This was the first time we stopped in for a bite.

Type of cuisine: While the late-night eatery offers everything from shawarma to hot dogs, hamburgers and sandwiches, the ice cream is the real draw.

Ambiance: A corner establishment, two sides of Eskimo are wide open to the street – no doors, no windows, just two steps up the faux wood tiled floors and into the primary colored world of Nicaraguan ice cream. Toys for children, including a plastic play house, several options of the claw arcade game with enticing gifts that will rarely be captured, and even air hockey can be found in this huge space.


What I ordered: On our first visit, after lunch, at the recommendation of our ice-cream scooper, I enjoyed Coconut ice cream on a sugar cone, while Chris partook of the Caramelo. After dinner, when we returned for another sweet treat, I tried the Cookies & Cream.

What I loved: The coconut chunks in the ice cream and the not-too-sweet taste. Perfect for a treat without the sugar high.

Why I loved it: It’s ice cream with friends in a city where the temperatures are so warm at night that flip-flops, shorts and t-shirts are expected!

Cost: Low (C$15 per single scoop ice cream cone)
