If you ever go to Mexico City, you should pay a visit to "El Moro" http://www.elmoro.mx/historia.php Here is their translated story: The Churreria El Moro was founded in 1935 by Fancisco Iriarte, who arrived to Mexico from a town called Elizondo in the Baztlan valley, Spain. The churreria took on it's name from some of the festivities around that area in Spain, where an Arab, known as "El Moro", sold churros from town to town in a cart. The churreria had it's beginning similar to this vendor, since in 1933, the founder after finding out that Mexico did not sell churros, installed a little cart in the main square of Mexico city. Little by little it became known, and thanks to this, it was possible to acquire local number 42 in the then San Juan de Letran street in 1935. Since then, the churreria has seen all sorts of Mexican artist and intellectuals at it's doors, like Cantinflas & Resortes, Carlos Fuentes, Octavio Paz, Jacobo Zabludovsky and Cuahutemoc Cardenas. Francisco, the founder, died very young and since then his three brothers (Jose, Santiago and Ignacio) arrived at Mexico to take care of the business. In this way, the business has gone from generation to generation until it became one of the most traditional places in the Mexican capital. Anyhow. I can vouch for this place. It's awesome. If you know of a churro place that is recommendable, don't hesitate to mention it in this thread.
