The icecream is great but the surprize come with the size of each scoop, which is huge!! If you want 2 scoops, make sure you have someone to eat it with:). Tip: you can buy 2 flavours in one scoop;)

as a host of local and international high tech
companies. To accommodate the onrush of new residents
and workers, the area of Poblenou has seen a surge of
