Summer means: sun, beach, sun burns, monoi oil, cocktails, sangria, music, bikinis, juices… but the most important is ICE CREAM!
Where to go for a delicious ice cream?
GELAAATI DI MARCO
Located on the corner of Placa Sant Jaume in el Barrio Gótico next to metro station Jaume I, this “gelateria” offers the best ice cream not only in Barcelona but in the WORLD! (yes exaggeration but its just to express how amazing these ice creams are).
WHY DO WE WANT TO GO HERE?
For dare devils: Di Marco offers a variety of original, intriguing sweet and salty flavours: Chocolate Picante (which gives a tangy spicy taste to the dark chocolate), Mojito, Rice, Parmigiano Reggiano, Mozzarella di Bufala and many more…
For Traditionalists: Not a big fan of change? You can also enjoy the traditional flavours such as Vanilla, Chocolate and Strawberry.
Newbies: Every week you can discover NEW flavours for the regulars 😉
The ingredients & Production
“Our gelato is easily absorbed because it contains low fat milk […] Furthermore, it is characterized by a low calorific value” and they do not use dyes nor hydrogenated vegetable fats.”
In addition, the ingredients are indicated on the window at the far end of the gelateria so that you know what you’re eating.
Finally all the ice creams are made in the shop. The production can be observed from inside the place.
I could have the nicest food, if the service is crap I will never return, never recommend the place and above all not enjoy the experience. But at Di Marcos: no problemo! I went in with a friend and there were so many choices and new flavours that we didn’t know what we wanted it and if we’d like it… Although this would have annoyed other waiters, it didn’t seem to bother our waiter at all! On the contrary, he seemed to really enjoy having us taste all the different flavours! (and to be honest, I tasted so many that I almost felt full just with that..
You can also other products such as their yogurts, cakes and cookies which look just as tasty as the ice creams !
A little plus is that it’s located right on the corner of Placa Sant Jaume. So once you’ve bought your ice cream, go ahead and visit the placa!
This ice cream parlour is a MUST on a nice sunny day!
Now all you have to do is go and CHOOSE your flavours 😀
