Signage just popped up for Churros Calientes, currently under construction on Santa Monica Blvd. next to West L.A.’s Royal Theatre. These churros are promising to come soon for all those who like it hot and sweet and are supposedly going to be organic. However, a visit to its website reveals a little more “caliente” than actual churro as it links to the page of Venezuelan model and soap opera actor Sandro Finoglio. Hard to believe the man would pass up his gig judging Miss Venezuela contests for organic churros, but until his visage is replaced by sugary sticks of cinnamon-sprinkled dough, that’s the best explanation we can offer. One thing is for certain, there is a power vaccum in the Westside’s churro landscape now that Santa Monica’s Xooro is closed, making it a timely moment for Caliente to conquer.
