We walked into their shop in the Born area of Barcelona and were impressed with their selection but we had lunch plans and decided to stop by later. After our lunch at Montiel, there was no way we could have had more sweets.
I knew about their other location on the Passeig de Gràcia. What I didn’t know was how close it was to our hotel. Service was friendly and they spoke good English.
This was awarded the world’s best chocolate cake in Lyon in 2005. It had four layers. An olive oil sponge cake, praline layer, cappuccino sponge soaked in Madagascar vanilla and chocolate mousse. It was a nice cake, but a tad sweet for me.
Not only this was visually stunning, it tasted great also. I am not a milk chocolate girl, but still enjoyed it. It had delicious praline financier, vanilla cream, chocolate mousse, raspberry and I think basil.
