“If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it; want to change the world... there's nothing to it.” These whimsical lyrics from Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory’s ‘Pure Imagination’ absolutely sum up the inspiration behind this amazing ice cream parlour in Girona, Spain...
Forget everything you ever thought possible for an ice cream parlour. Totally disregard those lack lustre dreams right now because Jordi Roca, the youngest of the three brothers behind El Celler de Can Roca (the second best restaurant in the world), has totally rewritten the ice cream parlour rulebook.
The name is Rocambolesc Gelateria, and don’t you ever forget it. Especially if you have an upcoming trip to Spain planned. Gauges, dials, knobs and pipes inside this dreamy dessert bar is as much of a treat for the eyes as it is for the tastebuds.
But when it comes to taste, it really doesn’t get much better than this. There are six different ice cream flavours on offer, which can be accessorised with up to 34 fun toppings like butter cookie (mmm), cotton candy (mmmm) and popping-candy (mmmmmmmmmmm).
Besides the exquisite ice cream, new dessert innovations are created throughout the year like hot ice cream-filled buns and ice-cream muffins. We really don’t need to say any more. We’d be surprised if you are still reading this article and not booking a flight to Spain right now.
