Dreams do come true – there is a place in Mexico City where you can get churros and hot chocolate all day, every day. Churrería El Moro, a CDMX institution since 1935, is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at their location in the historic center. (Nowadays, this 85-year-old pastry shop has many more locations around town, but the original café is the only shop open all night long.) Churrería El Moro is by far the best place for churros in the city, and it’s so fun to watch the entire mesmerizing process of making them. The churro batter is made of only three ingredients – water, salt, and flour. It’s squeezed into a bath of hot oil in the shape of a “rosca”, a spiral, and fried for 8 minutes on each side. When it’s done cooking, they take it out and cut it up into pieces and sprinkle it with sugar or cinnamon sugar before serving. This iconic sweets shop serves many varieties of their famous churros (and even churro ice cream sandwiches!) as well as a variety of dips – dulce de leche, vanilla, and chocolate. We loved dipping the churros in hot chocolate – so rich and delicious!
