Went to San Diego, they had awesome churros! Can we find fresh-made churros around here?

      On the corner of Echo Park Ave. and Sunset there is a churro truck that sells churros that are 8 for $2. They are fresh-made and delicious. Usually they start to set up there about 4pm..

        Well, the best churro dessert has to be at Literati II, you dip it in chocolate and it's OH SO GOOD! The churro itself had to be the best tasting churro I've had.

            Third on Literati II, I also liked the churros and chocolate dip at Cobras and Matadors. Its been awhile though so not sure if its still tasty. I'm normally so full at the end of my meal that I can only have a piece, but they're still tasty the next day for breakfast!

          Two good reasons to vist Olvera Street are Cielito Lindo for taquitos and then go to Mr. Churro for dessert. See the Merchant Directory below for locations.

            I LOVE Mr. Churro. They will make them fresh for you if you ask, which is absolute Heaven!

            If loving the ones from Costco is wrong, I don't want to be right.

              I don't know if anyone will agree with me, but Costco sells some pretty darned good churros these days. Not the frozen pack of 500, but fresh hot churros through the little window served by folks in hair nets. You know, the place where you can get a hot dog and a soda for $1.50? While you're picking up your twin pack of industrial sized cooking oil, nab a churro. You won't be disappointed.

                They're good, but occasionally a bit too hard. But hell, I always bring $1.62 with me for a hotdog, even when I don't want one.

                When I was in Rosarito, a while back, we went a little further south to Porto Nuevo and I ran up and down the steets looking for the churro guy I glimpsed from the main street. So worth it!
