Churrerías are on nearly every corner in the south of Spain, but Barcelona only has a small handful of their own. It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the very best places for churros in Barcelona is run by a family of southern Spaniards! If you want to try something different than the typical churro, go for the larger porras.
