Best Local Flavour Ice Cream in Barcelona
With almost a century of existence in Barcelona, Sirvent is an icon for such Spanish foods as horchata and turrons (nougat bars). Classical Catalan flavours are given a revamp via ice-cream by adding nougat bars, roasted nuts, dried fruites and even making a horchata flavour (which uses rice and rum) they managed to create a line of flavours of their own. This I what makes it so special and what sets them aside in the Barcelona ice-cream scene. An ice-cream offer purely based on the local traditional flavours of a culture and region and going away from the typical, chocolate, strawberry and cream touristic offer. You can see the success during the summer, when locals and tourists alike queue on the street, sometimes for over 30 minutes, awaiting their turn for a slightly alcoholic horchata ice cream with a with a turron topping. Surely one of the best ice cream shops in Spain!
