Barcelona Loves Street Food…but not very much and mostly after dark

If one doesn’t count potato chips (charmingly spelled xips in Catalan) on the beach or homemade empanadas peddled by South American immigrants during the festivities of Sant Joan, pretty much the only game in town is the famous Churreria J. Argiles, a beloved beachfront trailer that, for more than four decades, has supplied magnificent freshly fried churros and thick hot chocolate (xurros amb xocolata) to the youth that pours out of the discotheques and heads for the beaches to sleep off their buzz or sober up.

Now that we are (barely) back in Atlanta, we can’t think of anything we’d like more than a food truck selling churros and chocolate at 6 a.m.!
