Churros in Spain are what pancakes are in the US — delicious breakfast food. When Dad pulled out the churro press, you knew it was gonna be a special day. Whether they're coated in chocolate or sugar, stuffed with pastry cream or jam, these sugary fried-dough treats have what it takes to satisfy any stoner's munchies. A note: The word churro is spelled differently in Catalan, the official language of Catalonia. Accordingly, the spelling xurro will be used for the rest of this article. Xurreria J. Argiles Carrer de la Marina, 107, 08018 My top spot for xurros is a food truck located minutes away from Razzmatazz nightclub in Poble Nou. Pre-Covid, it served to a late-night crowd, so clubgoers could get their fill of that sweet greasy fried dough until 5 or 6am. Now they cater to the breakfast crowd. If you're in the area, grab a bag of xurros and a cup of hot chocolate — they’re amazing. Comaxurros Carrer Muntaner, 562, 08022 If you are like me and get bored with ordinary, this spot is for you. Located between a comic book shop and a cupcake shop (take my money, please), is the new kid, Comaxurros. This xurros spot serves sweet xurros, and savory, spicy ones too! Feeling brave? Try the Xurrito Bravo with either aioli or "bravas" sauce (spicy mayonnaise). Thinking about a quirky brunch? The Salmorejo (basically gazpacho thickened with bread) and Iberian ham xurro will make you wanna call your local IHOP and tell them they are suckers. Xurreria Laietana Via Laietana, 4, 08003 Xurreria Laietana is as old as time itself to most of us in Barcelona. Open since 1962, it has been serving xurros to generations of Catalan families for almost six decades. Their “porras,” pan-fried xurros that are thicker than ordinary xurros, are renowned in the city. I'm guilty of curing a hangover or three at this spot, so Xurreria Laietana, you get number 3 on my list.
