Bordering Valencia, Alboraya (Spanish) or Alboraia (Valencian) is the town where you’ll find some of the best tasting horchata—the traditional Spanish cold drink made from chufas (tiger nuts), sugar, and water. In fact, while driving to this horchateria, we passed by fields of chufas. So you can bet there are numerous places to sample the sweet drink.
This particular horchateria tops lists for two important reasons: It's delicious—not too sweet, not too heavy, and the space is huge, albeit casual and fun, and it's a popular place to chill out late on a hot summer night in Spain. Don’t forget to order one or three of Daniel’s chocolate-covered fartons—the bread-like treat that is traditionally dipped into the creamy cool drink.
