Best Churros in Miami?

Where's the best churreria in Miami-Dade county?

I heard there's even a place that makes fresh and delicious churros late at night into the wee morning hours, but I'm not sure if that's true. Do you know of these as well?

      Would you be able to tell me how it compares with Churromania? Churromania is in Dolphin Mall, Westland Mall and International Mall.

      And thanks for the suggestions, especially the 24/7 hours one!

        Okay I've tried these two... Las Palmas' churros are FAR MUCH MORE SUPERIOR than Churros Manolo. They were made fresh, on the spot, thick, and long. It was crunchy on the outside, and soft in the inside, having a delicate balance between the two.

        Churros Manolo on the other hand disappointed me. It was NOT made fresh - but a batch of already-made churros was kept under the heating lamp. They probably would taste better had they had been made fresh. I had the plain ones and the stuffed ones. The ones stuffed with dulce de leche made it better, but it still wasn't fresh. I wouldn't go back to Churros Manolo for the churros or ice cream (they use Dolce Vita, and Dolce Vita has its own ice cream shop just a few blocks away in Normandy Isles) but for the other goods.

        With the disaster at Churros Manolo, I'm sure Churromania is much better as I cannot imagine Churromania keeping their namesake churros under heating lamp. So if you want stuffed churros or are just too far from Las Palmas for the original ones, look for Churromania at one of the malls. If anyone has tried Churromania, please let me know how it was, since I still haven't been there. Or maybe there's other churrerias that are recommended?

          I also heard another place to try churros is at King's Cream, by 18th Avenue and Calle Ocho in Little Havana.

            I was thoroughly disappointed in Manolo as well.

        2. Churro manolo uses frozen churros they buy. There's a new place on south beach on collins and 14th openlate from madrid spain. they use soy oil and they are fresh and delicious..

            That would explain why I just can't get to eat churros from churro manolo. While I have not tried Churro Station, I'm already a fan of Churromania for churros - it's far better than Churro Manolo and La Palma.

            Churromania is in Westland, Dolphin, International & soon Southland malls. Perhaps ChurroStation might be a good spot for the Beach area. I look forward to hearing some feedback.
