With the start of Summer ice cream becomes as mandatory as cold beer, and Tarragona has it’s own fair share of ice cream parlors competing with flavours.
Raffa Gelati is a favorite because of the huge variety of on offer (50 + flavours) and because they are the only one who dish out a very subtle Chartreuse ice cream, as a testament to Tarragona’s heritage in producing the fabled drink.
Raffa Gelati chartreuse ice cream first came to our attention during the dTapes Festival in April; there it was served is a gorgeous glass dish with hazelnut ice cream and roasted caramelized hazelnuts on the side, which was a revelation.
Located at two of the prime spots of the city ( one next to the Meditarranean Balcony and one down at the Serrallo), Raffa is a mandatory guilty pleasure stop for locals and visitors alike in need of some cooling and a little treat.
STOP PRESS: we have just been reliably informed that Raffa Gelati has just launched the Raffaello, a mouth watering creation of coconut, almonds and seriously dark chocolate… may have to write a follow up!
