Vioko Gelat, Barcelona

I just returned from Barcelona where I had scrumptious seafood and seriously good ice cream from Vioko in Barceloneta. It’s an Argentinian ice cream and chocolate company. It also makes macarons – not as good as Pierre Herme or La Duree but with interesting flavours such as lime with olive oil. The shop is beautifully designed with huge black and white photographs of what looks like Alpine scenery on the walls. The logo is a deer so I got a feeling of the Alps or Scandinavia but no, the mountains are Argentinian. There must be some pretty good ice cream recipes knocking about in Argentina with the huge Italian community and this place certainly had great flavours. I had dulce de leche (anything to do with caramel is always at the top of my list) and grapefruit with lavender. The attention to detail in the design is ace with the flavours displayed on the wall with back lit coloured patterned glass discs representing the flavours next to the names. I really recommend it and will certainly return when I am next lucky enough to be in the fabulous BCN.

    Cami, if the pasta and pizza in Argentina is anything to go by, then I wouldn’t count on the country serving up delicious gelato. From what we sampled, we weren’t impressed.
