Churros dipped in thick hot chocolate?

Elsewhere in the world, most notably Spain and Mexico, churros are often served with a thick hot chocolate, more like a chocolate sauce than a drink. For example, here's a website for a famous Mexico City churreria, El Moro. http://www.elmoro.com.mx/

On the menu, along with the sort of hot chocolate one drinks, is Chocolate Española, just that sort of thick chocolate meant more for dipping.

Since I've been in Houston, I've been searching for that sort of churros and chocolate. Hugo's makes pretty good churros, and a divine hot chocolate for drinking, but not a thick one for dipping.

Is anyone aware of a place that does sell churros and a thick hot chocolate dipping sauce?

    I couldn't get your link to load; don't know if it's my connection or my filters but a churreria sounds like an idea whose time has come.

    How about this at La Fisheria? Described variously as a foam or a mousse --- upper right side of the menu:

    That's a place I've been wanting to go but have never gotten around to.

      Wow, Bruce. That looks great. I'm going to make a determined effort to get there.

        Hope you'll be able to give it a thumbs up from your experienced perspective. I've never had anything but the instant abuelita to drink with churros.

      La FIsheria is DEFINITELY the place to go for this. They may also serve it at Hugo's.

        Yes, La Fisheria.
