After eating tapas at El Quim and El Xampanyet, we could really use some desserts to clean our palate. First thing that came to mind was churos and hot chocolate. I wanted to try a churos and hot chocolate place around Barri Gotic but it was not on the way back to our hotel. So we decided to find another place, and so happened we ran into Bar Churreria Layetana at Laietana street. It was a small store, nothing fancy, which was what attracted us to it in the first place. We got in and the friendly waitress took our order - hot chocolate, cafe americano and churos with sugar. The hot chocolate at Layetana turned out to be my favorite hot chocolate. It was not too sweet and has a little malt flavor to it, something like thicker version of Milo. And the churos was so fresh and delicious, crunchy, chewy and not too oily. They also serve "yaotiu" or chinese fried dough like thing which we didn't get to try. We told the waitress we really love the churos and hot chocolate and she said we must go back again. Even if she didn't ask, I am definitely going back there again next time, perhaps for breakfast.
