Churros are a common thing in So. California=– as anyone who has been to Disneyland and/or the county fairs can tell you. They are a fried pastry that typically tastes like a cinnamon donut that you regret eating about 15 minutes after you buy it. It seems to lack something that makes it “sizzle” as a treat. Most of those churros don’t sustain a great flavor profile after the first couple bites- that is until now. Now there is a local establishment that has opened its doors in downtown Long Beach that will put most every other churro product out there to shame.
The Churrino store is on the Long Beach Promenade between 3rd street and Broadway. It’s an adorable store!
I was invited to the pre-opening party and I took a friend with me (Wave to Chris!) . We had a GREAT time! The store is small but not too small and it has an adorable atmosphere.
Disclosure: Because this was a pre-opening party, we were offered churro desserts as part of the party!

The great things about these churros from Churrino is that they are about 2-3 inches long and they have space inside them to be injected with a variety of fillings: strawberry jam (for the vegan fans), caramel leche, and chocotella. You get 3-4 churro pieces and they get filled and then you can add in a variety of toppings or sides like ice cream.
The 3 boxes on the far right show the 3 basic churros: the Caramel Leche, Chocotella and Strawberry.
Churrocino – a cappuccino type of coffee drink featuring churros to stir it or dip in the coffee!
The 3 different flavor injected churros with added decorations and flavors. The churros get dressed up and they taste so good. They are a bit gooey but what’s wrong with gooey?
Here’s an order that features ice cream and a range of topped churros to be used as a type of spoon. It looks so good in real life!
What did I try:
The Super Nut, which are churros stuffed with caramel leche, and then doused with caramel leche too. Then it is topped with coconut flakes, honey-roasted peanuts, and almond butter.
My friend Chris had the Gold Miner that you see above in the graphic and below in real life!
Here’s the owner with another reporter, Claudia Bermudez (Long Beach Local news outlet) talking about Churrino and the house churros!

I would like to say thank you to Churrino for their wonderful hospitality. Their staff is extremely friendly. We were offered any of the treats to try. The items are decadent and super-tasty. LOVE THIS PLACE!!
I can’t wait to go back and test drive more of these things. I am thinking that Churoccino would be the next item for me!
