Xooro churros (say that 3x fast while doing a shot)

Last week, the Blogger Prom committee and I stopped into xooro (pronounced Sure-oh) in Santa Monica by the 3rd Street Promenade for some special flavored churros, "Spanish fritters." They of course offer the classic fried dough sticks with cinnamon and sugar, but this specialty churro shop also has more exotic flavors like maple bacon, cream filled, chocolate covered, raspberry filled, nutella and many more. They are also looking to make some more savory flavors soon. Best of all, the churro's are nice and warm when served and are made using authentic ingredients and healthy frying techniques (rice bran oil). A gluten free xooro is available for those with a wheat allergy too. They come in one size and range in price from $3.69 to $4.20, thus not some cheap street eat anymore.
Xooro just held a sneak peak opening party for their new second location on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles/Hollywood area, only a few blocks from where I work. The event included some yummy samples and I got to hang out with Caroline on Crack who was also there.
Also chatted and took a pic of the husband and wife team who founded xooro--Begonia Amaya and Vicente Cisneros from Mexico City.

Officially, opening day at the new store is on Wednesday June 24th where they will also be offering free xooro’s to all guests from 5:30- 7:30 p.m. The new xooro is located at 8360 Melrose Avenue, between Orlando and Kings Road. Street meter parking available.
