Do You like ice cream? Enjoy the best flavors while the summer still lasts!
The summer is ending, but the sunshine is still there in Barcelona… Don’t you agree that life is better with ice cream? Lucky for you, in this great city we have excellent quality ice cream, and different types: Italian, Argentine, Spanish, gourmet or for children. There are options for everyone and with flavors for all tastes!
For ice cream fans, it’s always a good opportunity to try a new one. We always have a place for dessert, and if the dessert is ice cream even better. There are many kinds and flavors, some are refreshing, like lemon, mint or tangerine, the creamy ones, the pistachio or the one that literally never fails, chocolate!! In this blog note we will detail the best options to try ice cream in Barcelona!
Delacrem – La Dreta de l’Eixample
All the flavors are delicious, the pistachio is without doubt the best. It has sweet and savory touches and an extraordinary creamy touch. But the chocolate with hazelnut is also to die for! The owner is the famous chef Massimo and his team explore the classic flavors – they work with seasonal fruit and therefore periodically change the ice cream flavors – but they also develop new recipes, such as vegan cashew cream, apricot and cashew nut, and roasted apricot with rosemary, the first new additions to the menu. In addition to ice cream, a cafeteria with great coffee blends is offered. Its distinctive product is the ‘affogato’: an ice cream ball inside a cup of coffee with milk drowned by an ‘espresso. Soooo delicious, you definitely have to try!
Gocce di latte– El Born
Founded by two Italians, it has been in Barcelona for 5 years. It offers a world of flavours, from traditional ones such as chocolate, hazelnut, pistachio, vanilla, to the best combinations, among which pear, ginger and cinnamon sorbet, coconut with mint and coriander. For chocolatiers: the black choco, salt and extra virgin oil and the mythical Catalan cream. The best matcha tea ice cream in the city. They have another vegan branch (just around the corner). They offer incredible flavors, very original, work with good quality products and at an affordable price. I can’t stop repeating, I love it!
Rocambolesc – La Rambla
Jordi Roca is one of the three Roca brothers, the owner of one of the best restaurants in the world. His ice cream shop is at this level: fun, creative and a little crazy. It offers ice creams and water ice creams. You will have incredible flavors that you would never have imagined trying before like: baked apple, parmesan, asparagus and truffle, toasted bread with olive oil, carajillo de baileys, cupcake, mojito sorbet, coconut, mango In addition, some of its varieties are in exotic forms that will catch your attention: the Rocanas of strawberry with rose water; Columbus Finger of chocolate, oil and salt, and many more all very creative and very rich. An incredible experience! Unusual flavors and toppings, full of surprises. The place is very nice and the young team is very friendly and attentive to the customer experience.
In addition to offering good ice cream, it is a super novel and fun idea to know, that’s why we present the Ice Wave ice cream shop. Coming from Asian countries like Thailand. The cold plate, which can be made of granite, ice or teppanyaki type, but always at -20ºC, turns the ice cream service into a staging. They have a base of skim milk and yogurt (light and that adapts to the chosen flavor) on the plate with a filling that they crush with spatulas. And that by the action of the ice solidifies and coils, and thus goes to the tub with a topping. Example: rolled watermelon ice cream with berries sauce. Dare to try it? You won’t regret it for sure!
La Emilia – La Rambla
Their Nougat ice cream is the most delicious, it has the best texture! They also have a delicious pistachio flavour! Very highly recommended and the place is very nice to sit and have a coffee too. Very good ice cream and other desserts. Also a super good option to eat dessert after lunch at a nearby restaurant. The place its beautiful, and they also offers ice cakes and desserts.
