Churros are best straight from the fryer—the outside hot and crisp, and the inside so fluffy that it practically melts upon first bite. From their stand in the midst of Plaza Las Americas, the staff at Churros El Tigre has perfected this choux-based delight. They whip them up from scratch, and top the still-warm treats with an array of housemade sauces, including chocolate, strawberry preserves, bavarian cream.
They also sling a variety of other desserts to give shoppers a midday boost of energy. They transform bananas into a decadent treat, served sliced, hot, caramelized, and topped in sweet lechera. Flurries of shaved ice make up their raspados, which are sweetened with peach, coconut, pineapple and other fruit flavors for a drink as refreshing as a mouthful of baby tears.
