Nobody knows exactly how the churro came about, who invented it and its origin - but one thing we know for sure is that it is pure deliciousness! You can have them for breakfast, dessert and as a snack - so versatile, right?

Although they are not that big in South Africa as of yet, there are a few places that serve them:

Taqueria and El Burro, Cape Town
Perron and Paquitos Treatery , Joburg
Lucky Rodrigo, Pretoria
El Toro, Durban

Why not try making a batch at home with a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and a chocolate/caramel sauce for dipping! Or try this recipe for Churros French toast stack, which will blow your mind.

There are two kinds - thin and thick, the thick churro's are known as porra.

Prepare yourself for some churro madness: Enter the most draw-droppingly-delicious churros from around the world!
