One would think finding a first-rate churro in this city wouldn’t be too hard a task, but that would be the wrong assumption. For however intertwined Mexican cuisine and LA are, the churro has been cruelly left behind. But Churros Calientes is here to save us. This tiny shop on Santa Monica is quietly cranking some of the finest churros around. Head inside, order a fresh batch and a cup of their Spanish hot chocolate (for dipping, obviously), and die happy.
