Our Sunday in el Born could not have had a better ending than an ice-cream in la Barceloneta, the beach neighborhood in Barcelona.
We decided to try the new Eyescream shop because it looked a different type of treat. They have a limited variety of 7 flavors but then lots of toppings for them. They shave the ice-cream with a machine, which can be a little similar to shaved ice (this reminds me about an amazing japanese film called Megane, if you have the chance you should not miss for anything!), but a lot creamier. On top of your shaved ice-cream they add two candy eyes to metamorphose it, in a second, into a cute monster melting.
I chose cheesecake with milk candy (dulce de leche) and gummy bears, but I think the strawberry that Dani got was better. He went crazy with strawberry adding both jam and candies of the same flavor.
Which one would you have chosen? What type of ice-creams are your favorites?
Ready for ice-cream! who isn’t? :)
Eyescream funny monster mascots representing each flavor.
I sometimes have the determination to take cookies but always end up having gummy bears as topping.
Burning the ice-cream calories, hahahah who I am kidding? :)
The Vela hotel stands tall at the end of la Barceloneta seaside, although all the controversy in the beginning it has quickly become an icon of the skyline.
Night, night beautiful city.
