Amorino

You cannot visit Barcelona and not eat your way through the city. Barcelonians are all about food: whether it be tapas, pinchos, large meals or dessert.
While not strictly Spanish, the Gelato shop Amorino along La Rambla was probably my favorite haunt; conviently located 2 blocks from our hotel, Le Meridien.
I don't have much of a sweet tooth but I do have a taste for good gelato -and this is the BEST gelato you will ever have, I promise you. So if ever in Barcelona, Paris, London, Munich or any city lucky enough to have one of these shops, be sure to visit and indulge! Be sure to get a cone and enjoy the presentation: an ice cream cone transformed into a flower.

Stefan, I'm really enjoying a vicarious trip to Barcelona via your blog. A friend who was there not too long ago mentioned that not only is there beauty in every architectural detail, but that the inhabitants are uniformly beautiful as well. I'm ready to go! ... Mark

Stefan, you've chosen well in your series of BCN posts; it really is a case of "embarras des richesses" when it comes to the Catalan capital -- one of my all-time fav places! (And what a lovely time of year to go.)
All the best,
Michael
