Let's take a moment to thank the Spanish for inventing the sacred churro. Whoever thought of frying dough and smothering it in cinnamon and sugar was a genius.
There are some pretty amazing spots in Toronto where you can get insanely good churros. Actually attaining these sweet treats from one of the following places may entail a pretty hefty wait, but we promise it'll be worth it.
Choco Churros // Food Truck
What started as a small New York cart in the 90s, has become one of the most sought after food trucks in Toronto. It is adorably owned by a couple that once had separate churro carts and eventually married, starting their joint business venture: Choco Churros...#goals.
Pancho's Bakery Toronto // 214 Augusta Ave.
Their claim to fame is their irresistible churros. The bakery arrived in Toronto just four years ago, however it has been around since 1927 being passed down through generations in Mexico. The dulce de leche is to die for! Also located at: 1017 Dufferin St. and 658 College St.

El Catrin // 18 Tank House Lane
