Once upon a time, I spent 18 hours in Madrid on a long layover between Morocco and New York City. It was in this 18-hour window of time I was introduced to the secret world of midnight chocolate drenched churros. And even back here in Seattle, there's no shortage of amazing churros for your voracious consumption. You can smell churros from a mile away, but we thought this list might be handy in the event you're looking for something sweet.
Located in Edmonds, there is finally an easy way to get your fingers around a sugary churro anytime you want - Alberto's sells uncooked churros that you can stuff in your freezer to whip out whenever the mood hits. For more information on how to get a box, visit their website here.
At Gracia, the churros are served alongside a nutty chocolate sauce. Up your game with a side of espresso (Gracia serves Honor Society coffee), to really play up the European thing and make your way out into the neighborhood for a nice long after dinner stroll.
Soft, hot and chewy, Casco Antiguo does things up a little with a sublime dolce de leche sauce. If you've got a real sweet tooth, go all out and order Lupita's hot chocolate with a shot of tequila or mezcal to really up the ante - you won't be sorry.
El Quetzal's version of churros is served with fresh strawberries, whipped cream and topped with caramel sauce. Is it your birthday? Be sure to let someone know, it might just be your lucky day. Dessert really doesn't get any better than the churros here.
