Churros: Traditionally eaten in the early morning of New Year’s Day in Spain, these doughnut-like treats are rolled in sugar and then dipped in chocolate or coffee. The thicker, larger variant is called “porra.”
fishchips

Fish and Chips: Weirdly enough, the chip may have been invented as a substitute for fish, rather than an accompaniment. According to popular history, when the rivers froze over and nothing could be caught, resourceful British housewives cut potatoes into fish shapes and fried them instead. During World War II, the UK government made sure fish and chips was one of the few foods exempt from rationing.

Qassatat: Small ricotta, spinach, anchovy, or pea pies, these tasty snacks have been part of Malta’s food culture since the time of the Knights of St. John and were traditionally baked for Easter.
