Cravings: Churros & Hot Chocolate

There’s nothing like the smell of deep-fried churros with cinnamon in the evening air. These cylindrical doughnut-style snacks originated in Spain and were named after the curly ridged horns of Churro sheep. In Mexico, churros are a popular street food, usually available in the evening, but also may be found in malls or on the dessert menu at local restaurants. To create the signature ridges, the dough is piped into hot oil via a churrera, a large syringe-shaped tool with a star nozzle. Churros are delicious when eaten hot and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. They are traditionally served with thick hot chocolate that doubles as a fudgy dipping sauce.

Warning: Churros can be addictive. To avoid becoming as cylindrical as these tasty treats, choose a churro stand a minimum of 6 km. away and walk both there and back at a brisk pace! Find evening churro carts on the corner of Aguacate and Lazaro Cardenas, as well as the corner of Peru and Uraguay.
