i literally had a dream about mexico city -style churros y chocolate. where can i find in houston, other than at hugo's?? maybe someplace on airline / n main? or southwest?
I haven't been down to El Bolillo in over a year but the warm, fresh churros will be on a tray on the counter in the mornings; if they've been moved to the glass display cases along the walls they're less fresh. I only get them if they're still out on the counter.
But basically any panaderia is going to make churros so if there's one more convenient to you, check it out. May have Abuelita or champurrado, too, although maybe only on weekends. I've got a tortilleria near me on the SW side that does tamales and champurrado on weekend mornings and there was a panaderia a couple doors down for a short time.

John redcorn I chose your post to respond to because of your great name. El Jardin on Harrisburg and 78th have them according to their menu, although I have not tried them. I think everyone should journey out to the far east barrio and give this place a shot. I've been going for years and like the quesos, carnitas, grilled meats and shrimp, plus the camarones empanizados, fried shrimp. By the way john redcorn, how's Dale Gribble?

I adore churros made from scratch and served warm. So delicious. Haven't had any in Houston ever but Jimmy Changas said they will have them on their dessert menu after the novelty of the new place wears off. They aren't equipped to do desserts right now due to the volumes of people trying the restaurant. They have an ice cream machine in the lobby so you have to settle for a soft serve right now if you need a sweet fix. It's in Deer Park so it's not likely you'll come this far for them. But for me - oh yeah!!!
