SPANISH FOOD REALLY DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!

Spanish food is of course famous the world over, Barcelona Tapas and Paella is served in many many Barcelona restaurants, but when it comes to local Spanish food in Barcelona, it doesn’t get much better than the Barcelona Churros con chocolate, served with thick hot chocolate (known locally as Churros con Chocolate) for dunking your Barcelona Churros into, definitely some of my favourite Spanish food!

“BUT BEN, WHAT IS THIS “CHURRO” YOU SPEAK OF?”

Churros con chocolate are a sweet type of Spanish food, which are (surprise-surprise) fried, much like donuts. Churros con chocolate are made of  batter, and traditionally sprinkled in hot cinnamon sugar, buenisimo! You know when you have found a good Barcelona Churro stall or “Churrería” as it’s known locally, when the Churros are crunchy on the outside, yet soft a yummy in the middle. The surface of a good Barcelona Churro, should also be ridged and shaped like a prism, in a long spirally-twisted length of Churro heavenliness, YES, I really did just say Churro-heavenliness!

How to eat your Churros


Well my fellow Barcelonian Suitelifers, it’s easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy. First, find a bench or somewhere comfortable to park your bum, grab hold of one of the crunchy sticks of Barcelona Churro goodness, and dunk it as deep as you can into your pot of hot chocolate, don’t be shy, you need to enjoy this Spanish food to the maximum.

WHEN?…..EAT THEM FOR BREAKFAST, OR WHEN YOU’RE DRUNK!

Although typically, Churros con chocolate are considered to be a breakfast-time-kinda-food, they are eaten all day, and some of the Churro con chocolate stalls are open all night as well. There’s a small Churro stall, near the Joanic metro stop in Gracia Barcelona, it’s close to a club I go to and is open until God-knows-what-time, it sells the best Churros con chocolate in Barcelona and makes for the perfect end of night party food!

Remember, if you find a great Churro con chocolate place, you can tell us about it on our Facebook page!
