Tony's Churros Food Cart
I have been driving past this cart for a few months now. It's not that I didn't want to stop, its just that I was usually in a hurry somewhere, driving quickly down Portland Road and was already past it before my brain registered "Churros - my favorite dessert!"
Yesterday, I finally made it a point to stop by even though it was raining and I really didn't want to get out of the car. The cart is usually located in the parking lot of the El Grullense taqueria near Lana Ave. It seems to be there most afternoons and evenings, but since its mobile, don't come after me if you try for a churro someday and can't find it!
It looks like the cart makes both churros and fried plantains, but I decided to stick with the churros on my first visit. They are $.50 each. A steal!
The cart looked clean and I didn't have any qualms about eating there. I was quickly given my two churros in a brown paper bag and I handed over my dollar. The churros were pre-cooked, but were warm, delicious, and tasted fresh. Sometimes with baked goods you can get that "old oil" taste or a greasy residue in your mouth, but these tasted like all the ingredients were fresh and of good quality.
Next time you're driving down Portland Rd, keep your eye out for Tony's Churros. If you're lucky, the cart will be there waiting to quell your churro cravings.
