    This new, over-the-top, Miami-import delivers a virtual crate of churros that're rolled in sugar and spice (Szechuan pepper, star anise, cloves & cinnamon) to your table, teamed with spicy hot chocolate. These fried fritters pack some serious heat.

    The Hulk of the churro world, these guys're made with pandan extract -- an Asian plant with a sweet, slightly nutty banana flavor that also turns them green -- and're then slathered in Indonesian coconut kaya cream.

    This fish & chips shop doles out some seriously tasty seafood, but their dessert menu is the real winner by featuring mouthwatering churros that look like mini waffles, but definitely fit the churro bill with their texture and cinnamon sugar coating.

    The dessert at this Roy Choi venue is appropriately dubbed Chu-Don't-Know-Mang -- because you have absolutely no idea what you're missing until you bite into these crunchy, cinnamon-crusted pound cake churros.

    This churro-specific spot 1) exists, and 2) makes a super-sized version of the fried doughy goodness, which's stuffed with cream cheese then drizzled with guava syrup and dulce de leche sauce.

    Plan Check's cinnamon-sugar-dusted treats are basically dense, chewy churros masquerading as crullers served piping-hot on a pile of whipped cream with banana slices. Like all churros should be.

    If you don't like sugary treats, check out LA's best savory churro at this Mid-City Mexican spot. They're each almost a foot long, fried to a crisp, covered in cheese, and served with a corn molé dip.
