Orxata, originally uploaded by andreaban2009.
We entered Planelles Donat at  Portal de l'Àngel, which I believe is near the Gothic quarter ( but I could be wrong). Loads of shopping along the road but we were curious and there was a crowd inside this shop. The gelatos were plenty but the locals appeared to be enjoying a milky drink called Orxata. We tried it. Rather powdery and the flavour is a bit like soya bean. In the website it is spelled "Horchata". It is made out of tigernuts ( what?), sugar and water. It is considered a refreshing drink with enzymes that can aid digestion.
