Fabrica de Churros assembles a mighty fine treat
Is it a crime to sell obscenely delicious churros in Buenos Aires? I didn't think so, but when I recently pedaled up to Fabrica de Churros, a small 3-person "factory" of a store on Calle Olleros between Avenida Corrientes and Avenida Forest in the Chacarita neighborhood, there were scores of police officers out front, cars parked askew in the street with lights flashing.
...they were not, as it turns out, there for the churros. An actual real crime was in progress across the street, but the small queue of customers sidled along the counter for the freshly deep-fried sticks of dough--plain, filled with dulce de leche, or covered in chocholate, or both (una bomba!)--were not deterred from scoring their golden loot, criminals on the loose or not.
Fabrica de Churros is worth going a few extra stops on the B line for a dozen, don't pass up the dulce de leche option.
