What, you thought we were going to leave it at the fried-chicken donut sandwich? Oh, hell no. We have still more blechtacular food to hip you to, starting with the Churro Taco Waffle that’s now available at Max Brenner.

La Churreria Has Closed; Guess They Weren’t Making Enough Dough

IMG_1340Well, this is a bummer. One of our favorite Spanish spots, La Churreria, has called it a day. Just a month after we got all excited about a menu makeover that brought churro cups into the mix, the three-year-old sister restaurant of neighboring Socarrat has “closed for renovations,” per a Facebook message. But don’t get it twisted, heart-shaped churro fans: the Nolita cafe isn’t coming back. An inquiry reveals the ownership will be “launching a new concept,” with details coming soon.

You can still walk down to Despaña for something close to the Spanish-style sandwiches that La Churreria served. But why did this have to happen when churros were finally going viral?

Yes, it’s National Donut Day, which means dough dealers everywhere are rolling out deals. Dough, for instance, is debuting its new matcha-sugar donut and offering a chance to get a year of free donuts to those who buy a box of six or more.

Buy a dozen or more donuts at Moe’s Doughs, in Greenpoint, and you’ll get four free, or you can just get a donut and a coffee for $2. And Dun-Well Doughnuts, in Bushwick, is offering a free donut with purchase of an espresso drink. But forget all that, because churro cups.

Where Valentine’s grub is concerned, I never thought my heart would stray from Doughnut Plant’s rose-petal doughnuts, but these heart-shaped churros really take the cake. And speaking of cake, La Churreria is also offering a churro cake for the V-Day season. Take a look.
