Where to get churros?

churrosAsking for a friend, Katherine emails:

A friend of mine is in dire need of churros but we don't know where to find any. Can you please help?

Oh, sure -- a "friend" is in dire need of churros. Well, we also have a "friend" who enjoys eating churros dipped in chocolate sauce (really the only way churros should be eaten).

Got a suggestion for Katherine's friend? Please share!

A friend asked Steve Barnes about this last year.. got a few helpful responses.


Perhaps I should also clarify that said friend is not actually me.. someone much cooler, who has been to Spain.

I've had churros at Loca Luna in Ballston Spa and at La Fiesta on Central Ave (next to where Garcia's used to be). Both were decent, not awesome.

You can get Churros mix from La Mexicana in Schenectady. I think it comes with everything you need to make them (pastry bag and attachment, etc). They also sell Mexican chocolate bricks for the complete Churro experience.

I'm noooot sure if they sell freshly made ones, although they really should, even if it was only seasonally.

Thanks so much everyone! I, ahem I mean, my friend can't wait!

When it gets cold, anything warm and comforting hits the spot, but my favorite local food to turn to is the mac and cheese and avocado fries from Slidin' Dirty- nothing beats that!
