My Sevillana friend always swears by a certain Sevillano chain heladería. Then, I told her about this little place. If there is any place where you can taste Seville, then it is here. Joaquín Liria has created ice creams based on some of Seville's most prominent scents: springtime's crema de flor de azahar (cream of orange blossom) and dulce de romero (rosmary), and favourite sweets: dulce de palmera, crema de Torrijas (typical of Holy Week). There is even one that tastes of Manzanilla de Sanlucar de Barameda - sherry flavour! For me it would be hard to choose a favourite: I love Dulce de Chirimoya (custard apple), which is only available towards the end of summer when the fruit is most flavoursome, and caramelly Dulce de pestiño, another sweet typical of Holy Week. There is a variety of sizes, available in scoops or little tubs (a 1-scoop cone is €2.20 and small tub €3.00). The heladería has gained press both nationally and internationally for its innovative creations, and even Great Britain's Rick Stein visited while filming his last series Rick Stein's Spain.
