In addition to Barcelona's tapas and renowned culinary scene, the city also boasts an array of delicious street food. It's not exactly the type of street food you'd picture in North America, with hot dog and sausage stands on the side of the road. Barcelona's street food is usually sold by individuals walking around the Old City with baskets of baked goods. They often come in the form of empanadas (Argentinean pastry filled with meat, or vegetables), tiny hot dogs or even cookies. Late night street food also consists of beer, sold by the can or the pack and small bags of popcorn. If you're looking for something slightly more substantial, some of the shawarma places are usually open until 2am and they serve great salads and chicken and beef dishes which you can eat outside in the park or on a bench. Maoz and Wok to Wok are also more 'upscale' street food restaurants where you can get a hearty meal. Although most street food joints close by 1-2am, you can always count on the individual vendors to keep selling until the sun comes up. And if you're still hungry, the Boqueria market opens around 10am and they have tons of fresh produce and croissants which you can buy and eat while strolling along the Rambla.
