We sure love our food mash-ups here in L.A., and thankfully, we've got a new one in town: the churro ice cream sandwich.

You heard us right. Think two crispy and flattened-out churros, almost like a moist beignet, with scoops of ice cream flavors in the center like horchata, Mexican hot chocolate, vanilla custard and Spanish latte. There are also seasonal flavors like orange creamsicle, panna cotta, and peach cobbler.

The churro ice cream sammie comes by way of Churro Borough, an L.A.-based catering company that is doing some pop-up shops this summer and serving its unique dessert. According to Chow, the company is the brainchild of chef Sylvia Yoo, who's worked in such famous kitchens in New York like Jean-Georges and WD-50.

You can expect Yoo to make some appearances at the LA Street Food Festival on June 28 and at Tasting Table's Lobster Rumble West on August 1.

Just last week, Churro Borough had a pop-up at Ramekin in Los Feliz and posted this photo on Instagram of their blueberry, black sesame and creme fraiche ice cream flavors:

And the best part? There's more in store. Yoo's working on some new churro-inspired ideas as well, like the Churrons, churro-flavored macarons.
