Los Feliz Gets Its Own Churro Ice Cream Sandwich Shop
Long gone are the days where we'd have to chase down Churro Borough's churro ice cream sandwiches at pop-ups and festivals. The geniuses behind this mash-up dessert have opened a brick-and-mortar shop in the heart of Los Feliz.
If you're wondering what a churro ice cream sandwich entails, think two crispy and flattened-out churros, almost like a moist beignet, with scoops of ice cream flavors in the center. These treats are the brainchild of Sylvia Yoo, who's worked in such famous kitchens in New York like Jean-Georges and WD-50. Along with her brother and business partner Paul Yoo (Mexicali Taco & Co.), they've finally launched their store together on Vermont Avenue, Eater LA reports. It's in the space right where the now-shuttered Ramekin once called home. It comes full circle because Churro Borrough did a pop-up at Ramekin last summer.

Not only can you get churro ice cream sandwiches, but also scoops of ice cream and paletas at the shop. The grand opening is this Friday from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., but they have a soft opening going on today from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. After Friday, their regular hours will be from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays through Thursdays and Sundays, and from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. They'll be closed on Mondays.
Churro Borough is located at 1726 N. Vermont Ave., Los Feliz
