|see what i mean?|
There are lots if ice-cream parlours in Girona but if you see a queue emerging from a hole in the wall, and smug looking so-and-sos clutching little ice-cream pots with candy floss toppings and such like, you know you've found Rocambolesc! The toppings are endless and fun and you're not really allowed to leave without one. They're also really friendly. See for yourselves! The 'hole in the wall' won a design award and is gorgeous. So there.This is what they say on their website:
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 designed byAndreu Carulla, 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 town: this is how Rocambolesc was born.
The vintage feel of the establishment, 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, is the work of Sandra Tarruella's Interior Architecture design firm and the graphic design firm Run, which is also responsible for the corporate identity and the packaging.http://www.rocambolesc.com/
