1. What makes us different
We strive to take churros to the next level. We have created the most delicious combinations of toppings and flavors which can be added to any type of churro. Besides the traditional churros, we bring you churros in different ways like bites, stuffed and our specialty Churros with Ice Cream bowl. We are constantly looking for new additions to our toppings list.
2. Origin of Churros
The origin of churros is unclear. One theory is they were brought to Europe from China by the Portuguese. The Portuguese sailed for the Orient and, as they returned from Ming Dynasty China to Portugal, they brought along with them new culinary techniques, including modifying the dough for youtiao, also known as Youzagwei in southern China, for Portugal.
3. What is a churro?
A churro is a fried-dough pastry predominantly choux based snack. Churros are popular in Spain, France, the Philippines, Portugal, Ibero-America and the Southwestern United States. In Spain, churros can either be thin (and sometimes knotted) or long and thick. They are normally eaten at any time of the day with hot chocolate or café con leche.
However, they modified it by introducing a star design because they did not learn the skill of "pulling" the dough (the Chinese Emperor made it a capital crime to share knowledge with foreigners). As a result, churros are not "pulled" but rather extruded out through a star-shaped die. Another theory is that the churro was made by Spanish shepherds, to substitute for fresh bakery goods. Churro paste was easy to make and fry in an open fire in the mountains, where shepherds spend most of their time.
