Paletas — Las Paletas — $3.50

This summer’s insufferable heat waves were made a little more bearable when Las Paletas owners Irma Paz-Bernstein and her sister Norma Paz announced they were temporarily reopening their beloved paletas shop in a storefront next to Fido in Hillsboro Village. Las Paletas closed early on in the pandemic, after lasting nearly 20 years in 12South. For their return, the sisters brought back many favorite flavors — banana cream, avocado, tamarind, strawberry and more. As of this writing, the pop-up is still operating, but who knows for how long — the sisters aren’t offering much clarity either, only saying they’ll be there through “September or October.” By the time you read this, they may already be gone.
