Here's an ice cream parlour run by Argentinian couple Daniel and Julieta, who have found their place in the world in Barcelona making artisan ice creams (something the Argentinians excel at, in case you weren't aware). In 2009 they opened their first shop, and in 2011 anoter in C/Carders. The pair note that they learned their craft the Italian-Argentine way, 'which transports you to a place where ice cream is an obligatory dessert', and that they only work with good local products.
Their sorbets are made with seasonal fruit from the Boqueria market, fresh on the day, and you can choose from among flavours such as peach, grapefruit, fig, cherry, green apple and kiwi. Ice creams are made with cream, fresh milk and sugar. In addition to some of their surprising flavours – red wine ice cream! mojito sorbet! – they have offerings from their bakery for vegans (brownies, muffins, cakes...) and they have ice creams made with rice milk for anyone who's lactose intolerant, as well as plenty for celiacs and others who are gluten-free.
