For this adventure, we asked Tony and Jana to tag along and give us their take on GelatoInk and Burgers. Glad they were able to join us for this spur of the moment lunch date.
We are excited to announce we have found our Number 1 burger joint in Valencia. YAY!!!! This one knocks it out of the park because who doesn’t love a tasty burger and a gelato for dessert or gelato in your cocktail. Yup, you read it right. A cocktail with gelato…I had the mango mojito and I was in heaven! It had the right amount of sweetness with the consistency of a slurpee!
We ordered Teque Cheese Fingers (which I am in LOVE with), polenta sticks, and original fries. They each had a special home-made dipping sauce.
Teque Cheese Fingers (aka Tequenos) are Venezuelan cheese sticks. The bread transported me back to when I was young. The taste and texture was very much like Pilsbury crescent rolls. You know, the ones used to make weiner wraps. The Teque Cheese Fingers were served warm and the dipping sauce was the perfect condiment.
Polenta sticks are similar to polenta fries. They too were delicious and served with a different home-made sauce.
Original fries were quite good, slightly crispy and shaped like a scoop….great for dipping!
GelatoInk and Burgers offer 8 different burgers on their menu, including a vegan option! Their burgers are all beef and from León, Spain. They make the burgers as ordered by the customer, shaping the patties with no additional seasoning except a bit of salt.

For dessert, I ordered a GelatoInk Burger – a brioche filled with a giant scoop of Jaffa Cake* gelato. They topped it with chocolate and whipped cream. Having had gelato in a brioche while we were in Sicily, next time, I will ask them to hold the extra chocolate and whipped cream.
John ordered a GelatoInk Burger too but his was filled with pistachio gelato and whipped cream and topped with pistachios.
Tony passed on dessert but Jana had a cone with 2 flavors. Lemon Pie Gelato and Jaffa Cake. Delish! Jana was the one who mentioned Jaffa Cake so I asked for a test spoon and have now added this to my list of favorite flavors.
Overall, our experience at GelatoInk and Burgers was excellent. We enjoyed good service and delicious, well-priced meals. So if you’re looking for a tasty, juicy burger, head on over to GelatoInk and Burgers at El Carmen neighbourhood in Valencia, Spain….. and if burgers aren’t your thing, you can always go for a gelato, gelato with coffee, gelato cocktails, and more! You won’t be disappointed.
*For those of you who have never heard of Jaffa Cake (like John and I), here is the lowdown. Jaffa Cakes are biscuit-sized cakes with three layers: a Genoise sponge base, a layer of orange flavoured jam and a coating of chocolate.
