The weather in Madrid this weekend feels more like summer than spring, temperatures have gone up and everyone has ever so quickly gotten into their shorts and sandals. Blue skies and a warm sun makes you feel like going out and not staying cooped up at home. I am no very fond of ice-cream in winter but I do love a good scoop when the weather is nice. Many of you have probably heard of Jordi Roca’s Rocambolesc in Girona. I am happy to say that now you can try out his ice-creams in Madrid as well at El Corte Inglés Gourmet Experience on 52 Serrano Street, right next to Street XO and Cascabel (more on Cascabel next week).
The corner is ever so charming conjuring up memories of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Who hasn’t dreamt of being in a candy land? There aren’t tons of different flavors and most of them are classic such a chocolate, Maria cookie, vanilla, roasted apple but what makes these ice-creams special are the toppings. I think you would really be missing out on them if you just ask for a plain scoop. You need to order the flavor with all the toppings meant for it. One of my favorites is roasted apple. Another option is to get creative and add your own but if it is your first time I strongly recommend that you let them do the work for you.
A place to stop and cool off.
