Fresh Churros in... Noe Valley!! And they're amazing.

This weekend I had the best churro I've ever tasted at a most unlikely place: the upscale brunch spot in Noe Valley called Miss Millie's that advertises "Innovate American Cuisine." These have a large, ribbed, somewhat rectangular cross-section rather than the more typical asterisk shaped cross-section. The result is that they get a really crispy exterior but the inside remains doughy and chewy the way I like them. Fried fresh to order and dusted with generous cinnamon and sugar, these are just divine. Only $1.25

I also had the chilaquiles. These were thankfully not the crunchy style popular at Tacubaya or Primavera. Salsa was a subtle blend of tomatillo and guajillo. Topped with sour cream instead of Mexican crema, which was unfortunate. Overall they were very satisfying, but at about $12 with the optional egg (about $10 without), I doubt I'll return for them. They do however have a number of other Mexican breakfast items that I may try. The staff were all Latino, and given that the churro was so good, I'm willing to seek for other gems on the menu.
