In Summer I treat myself to ice cream quite a lot – it is the season after all – and must confess to being quite the snob about quality, texture and flavour. So discovering a new ice cream parlour that not only meets my strict criteria, but surpasses them, has been one of the highlights of this Summer for me.
Come, let me take you there. It’s not far, for just down the road from the Macba, on Carrer Ferlandina 37 we find snukyss, where you can get proprietor Miguel to serve you a cone stuffed with one (or more) of the delicious flavours for a simple gelato…
… or you can ask his wife Donatella (originally from Sicily) to make one of their to-die-for fusion ice creams by blending them right there, in front of you very own eyes, on the slab of marble behind the counter, and serve it to you in a cup. You could try the Banoffee mix, or the Tiramisù perhaps? Or one of their fruit mixes, yumm!
Whichever ice cream you choose, whether it be a fusion delight or a simple cone with a cream flavour or a zingy fruit sorbet (their mango and passion fruit ice creams are incredible!), you will want to come back for more!
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over right now – it’s always the right time for an ice cream or milk shake, if you are a gelato lover!
Snukyss is open from Tuesday – Sundays: 1pm – midnight. Check out their Facebook page for news and updates, as well as funny images of their clients.
