Churro milk shakes are on offer at the Counter as the June milk shake of the month. Think vanilla with a blast of cinnamon and an undertone of fried dough. Actually, it’s more than an undertone—there are actual bits of frozen churro. Definitely worth a wait with the hipsters, says Dommy.
Want your churros straight up? In Echo Park, there’s a churro cart that sells eight for $2, says vibrant. Fresh, hot, and delicious. Catch them there till about 4 p.m.
On Olvera Street (off Alameda) downtown, you can get churros with old-LA flavor at Mr. Churro, another cart operation. They’re not necessarily freshly made, but you can get them that way if you ask, and it’s well worth it.
For a more upscale take on churros, Literati II and Cobras & Matadors both offer them for dessert along with a side of melted chocolate for dipping.
