Churros! The good, the bad, and the ugly. Just kidding, they are all good.

Since we’ve arrived in Gijon, I have eaten churros a handful of times and not once have I regretted ordering them. In fact, I am a little nervous that anytime we pop into a cafe for a snack or desayuno (Spainsh for breakfast) and they are a menu option, I will order them above all else. I won’t do that (don’t do it, Jess!) as I enjoy trying other foods. But they are sooooo good. Even when they’re not great, they’re still pretty darn good.

The best place to order them, from my experience and what I’ve read, is at a Churroria. Churrorias specialize in churros (duh) and make their own, fresh, in-house. A cafe or even a bar may have churros on the menu but they likely come from a bag and perhaps were frozen. I have had them both ways. The fresh ones (pictured below from Valor) were far superior (like funnel cake kissed by an angel) but even the frozen ones were still fried, golden, sugar dusted tubes of delight. As if that wasn’t enough, you get to dip them in CHOCOLATE! Chocolate that you can then drink! They are similar to pizza in this way; fresh is the way to go but frozen pizza is still pizza and well, gimme that pizza. But first, pass the churros con chocolate!
