HELADERIA COROMOTO: "MERIDA: ICE-CREAM PARLOUR IN THE BOOK OF RECORDS" Venezuela Restaurant Tip by swesn

Venezuela Restaurants: 37 reviews and 17 photos

Heladeria Coromoto is world-famous and tour buses download scores and scores of tourists to visit it.

Well, it is apparently in the Guiness Book of Records. It has up to 750, or some say, 1000 ice-cream flavours? whatever!

OK, there were many many many and I mean many ice-cream flavour signs on the board, but the ice-cream flavours available at the counter for choosing were fewer, (about 100) but still, mind-boggling.

Imagine, ice-cream flavours for 'hamburger', 'smoked trout', 'beer', 'rice with chicken', 'garlic', 'spaghetti', etc? and there are others with perplexing names like Italy, Norway, Europe, Africa, Miss Venezuela, My Beautiful Mérida, For You My Love, Sun and Shadow, Viagra The Hope, etc?

I ordered ?Cream of Crab? and ?Eternal Love?. The ?Crab? was so-so, but ?Eternal Love? tasted very nice. Ah, now I can say I know the taste of eternal love, hahaa?
