GIRONA & MADRID: ROCAMBOLESC ICE-CREAM SHOPS
If you are visiting Madrid or Girona, please stop to enjoy some incredible ice creams at Rocambolesc
It all started when Jordi Roca decided to bring back the traditional dessert trolley of El Celler de Can Roca, which was dispensed with when he took over the sweet part of the menu. When they saw the new petit‑four trolley the Roca brothers thought it would be fun to stroll around the streets of Girona offering these petits fours to passers-by. Though it was an exciting idea, they were faced with the restrictions imposed by local regulations, so they decided to showcase it in an ice cream shop that they opened in the centre of Girona, their town, and this is how Rocambolesc was born.
With locations in Girona and Madrid, as well as Platja d’Aro, all the establishments have a vintage feel inspired by the magical world of Willy Wonka, the fictional character that owns a chocolate factory in Roald Dahl’s children’s book and Tim Burton’s movie.
Ice creams are the essential product on offer: six different flavours, in cones or tubs, combined with up to 34 funny toppings, so that you can make your own ice cream to suit your taste. Besides, new products are created throughout the year: hot ice cream-filled buns, ice-cream muffins, their famous milk dessert…etc.
You and your kids will love it!
