Churros Calientes, West L.A.’s adorable cafe for completely organic churros and hot chocolate (as in choc-o-la-tay), is now open on Santa Monica Blvd. Feast confirms our initial suspicions that one of the owners here is Venezuelan actor Sandro Finoglio, who runs the small space with model Carla Ortiz and Eric Bonillo, a former chef at Drago Centro. Besides the obvious, what’s to eat here?
In addition to the namesake desserts, with toppings like dulce de leche, fruit, condensed milk, and chocolate, there are also drinks of thick chocolate, including a mate brewed with coca leaf (!). You can also expect soups, salads, panini, and tortilla Espanola to go with the team’s equipment, apparently all imported from Spain. Had you told us on Monday that we would be welcoming news that the city was getting any hotter, we wouldn’t have believed it.
Churros Calientes, 11521 Santa Monica Blvd. West L.A.
