Las Fallas Street Food. The Biggest Party In Valencia Is Delicious

Posted on 3/18/2012 21 comments

Cream filled churros

Las Fallas festival (celebrated from the 1st to the 19th of March each year) is Valencia's biggest festival and the craziest one.

Like any other festival, Las Fallas has its share of food stalls and markets. Of course, heavy drinking is an important part of Las Fallas fun, and there are plenty of stalls and bars all over the city that sell mojitos, caipirinhas and beer. Some call this the Mother of All Parties, and we can't argue with that.

There's a lot of energy on the streets of Valencia during these days. People dancing and singing and throwing firecrackers till very late at night is a common sight. And seeing fallas, the light displays, the mascletas and the flower offering are just as unique experiences. There's something to do for everyone. And despite all the drinking and getting drunk thing, Las Fallas is a festival very much for the children too

A peculiar detail however is that some of these yummy foods (like the buñuelos and the cream filled churros) can only be bought during Las Fallas. Once the festival finishes, all the street stalls disappear and with them, the mouth watering delicacies.

  3. Oh my gosh, you had me at the cream-filled churros in the first picture! So delicious! That's enough to make me pack up and move to Spain!

  4. Unfortunately the cream filled churros are very difficult if not impossible to find during the rest of the year. They are something to be found only during Las Fallas festival.

  8. Cole, that happens to me too; after breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    Francy R, you can come next year. Plus there are plenty of other festival to check out too... OK, maybe not as crazy as Las Falls, but fun nevertheless.

  9. Way to save the best shot for last. Anything with hot chocolate is just heavenly. Your photos were perfectly shot and makes me want to head to Valencia right now and try everything.

  10. Alexa, I love hot chocolate too. Unfortunately it would be nearly impossible to find buñuelos now that Las Fallas has come to an end. But the churros dipped in chocolate are pretty much worth the trip too :)

  14. My God, that food looks crazy delicious! Haha, I think it's kind of cruel that so many of the sweet, delicious delicacies disappear after the festival ends!
