The best time to ditch your diet and enjoy some delicious treats is when you’re visiting & exploring a new city on your travels.

Whether you enjoy treats or love something spicy, definitely try snacking on one or all of these desserts. Trust us, you’ll keep wanting more!                        


The best part about churros is that you can enjoy them as a heavy breakfast or a mid-day snack. You'll also spot churro food stands during popular events or festivals where you can feast on them while on the go. These deep-fried fritters are made from flour, water and salt and they are eaten by topping them up with sugar, cream or even chocolate. Enjoy it piping hot along with tea or coffee!

Crema Catalana

There is something quite tempting about enjoying a spoonful of the classic French crème brûlée, and the Spanish version is no different! Crema Catalana is a soft custard topped with caramelized sugar. The only difference between the two would be that the local version has milk infused with orange, lemon and cinnamon.
