Barcelona is always bursting with food truck events and these rolling kitchens have some mouth-watering street food to offer. Van Van Market was one of the first events that brought the food truck hype to Barcelona and it is still my favourite food festival.
To make sure we are not only depending on the festival to get a street food fix, Van Van came up with a brilliant idea. In the upcoming industrial neighbourhood of Poble Nou they have opened a fixed kitchen. Van Van Var is not a kitchen changing venues…. but a venue changing kitchens!
The small bar and the sun-drenched terrace are simple and fit the industrial yet trendy vibes of the neighbourhood. Many offices around make it a popular lunch and after work spot. You will sure mix with the fashionable locals of this hood.
The reason Van Van Var is so special is that they host a different food truck every week. The chefs of the rolling kitchens take over and offer a limited but delicious menu of their street food dishes. Think fried chicken of Masala 73 (my favourite!), the amazing burgers of Deligotessen or Peruvian food by Warike.
Apart from the weekly changing menu, they also have a fixed bar menu with some very simple tapas. It’s always sunny at Van Van Var, so a perfect spot to start with some beers and snacks before you start exploring Poble Nou!
