Maybe the Best Churro You WIll Ever Eat


I go to dozens of new restaurants a month. 95 percent of the time? I never go back. But occasionally I get a place I obsess about. Spots where I am torn between sharing and keeping the lines down for myself...Don Churros Gomez is one of those places.

It's just a truck parked on a quiet corner of Anaheim like so many other roach coaches in So Cal but for people in the know it's a magical places. Don Churros is producing a product at a level that as of now is pretty hard pressed to be touched.

While the truck might be new the recipes have existed in same state with the family for decades. It's a little surprising to learn that the recipe is supposedly vegan (I would guess the sugar being commercial white sugar may be processed with bone ash thought) seeing as this churro meets every standard a churro needs. They are crispy, chewy, without being dense. They say the process is a three day one for the dough and I believe them.

When you go there (and you really should) take time to watch these guys make churros. It's a detailed process with a lot of steps. I would say to try their El Don Churros which is like a cross between french bread and a churro stuffed with caramel but my heart is with the classic.

Just do me a favor and don't go while I'm in line.
