    Huîtres Amélie. The Amélie are oysters Fine de Claire and Spéciale Fine de Claire, the only ones in the world with Protected Designation of Origin (Marennes-Oléron), tuned in the claires, clear or exclusive clay ponds of this French region. In their market stall at La Boqueria market (La Rambla, 91) they prepare them to eat there and to take away. And in its Pop-up bar at El Corte Inglés in Plaça Catalunya, they served naturally and also steamed with Premium liquors, with gelée de champagne and smoked in a glass bell at the Amélie Sensations tasting.
