Cream of Guanaja by Bubó
BUBÓ CITY: BARCELONA Bubó, the brainchild of Charles Mampel, is a fine dessert haven rich in delectable chocolate delights and sugary confections. In the midst of all these delicate creations, the Cream of Guanaja reigns supreme as the true expression of chocolate in all its glory. Filled with irresistible 70 percent Guanaja chocolate ganache, covered in a glacier of seductive chocolate, its texture contrast comes in the form of a crunchy butter biscuit with cacao bean pieces as its base. Guanaja is the top-end range by French chocolate specialist, Valrhona, but if cocoa alone does not excite you, try Bubó’s appetising array of liquids, semi-liquids, creams, and foams in glasses bursting with different flavours. Choose from delicious caviar to creamy mousse, light sponge to just a fine piece of chocolate. 10 Caputxes, Barcelona. Tel: +34 934 103 659. www.bubo.es
