What is Churro?

A churro is a long piece of thick deep-fried dough, coated with cinnamon and sugar. It is a Mexican and Spanish dessert, popular for its crisp exterior and soft interior. Stuffed, dipped or traditional, you can have it as a dessert or with a chocolate beverage!

Try our Churros either for yourself or at your party!

It was called "Oro Verde" (Green Gold). The henequen is a plant that was very precious in Yucatán due to the fiber that it has. Very strong fiber used for many things such as shoes, bags, etc.

Tortas! It is a large Mexican sandwich filled with a variety of meat.

One of my favorites is the Cochinita Pibil (pulled pork, marinated in achiote).

Perfect for lunch, or dinner. If you don't want to cook or go out of your home we are in Uber eats.
