Churros El Tigre [Las Americas Premium Outlets] - San Ysidro



Churros El Tigre is located at the Las Americas Premium Outlets in San Ysidro, right near the Mexico-United States border.  J and I met our good friends there for a day of shopping on a Saturday afternoon.   Between our purchases (and great deals),  it was time for a churro break!  Yay for churros!


A churro is a fried dough pastry.  The dough is put through a funnel and fried in hot oil.  Right from the hot oil, they are then tossed in a cinnamon and sugar mixture. 

Churros El Tigre's little stand is located near and outside the food court.  They sell freshly made churros, funnel cakes, raspados (flavored shaved ice), caramelized banana slices, and ice cream sundaes. 


Oooh, they make it fresh right in front of you.  I ordered the five pieces of crispy, fresh churros ($3.00). 


Yum!  This picture of my small bag of churros looks like my hand doing a "hang loose".  The churros were crunchy, warm and delicious.  They were fried perfectly.  I just love the texture of a freshly fried churro.  They were the perfect portion size for me too.  I planned on sharing with J, but he wanted something else....


ICE CREAM!  We also ordered the Supreme Churro Sundae ($7.50).  This dish was massive!  There were a total of six churros, caramelized slices of banana, two humongous scoops of vanilla bean ice cream, chocolate sauce, chopped nuts and two maraschino cherries.  It was also supposed to come with 'lechera', sweet condensed milk, but we asked for them to leave it off.   We had a good laugh while the gentleman was making our sundae because we then noticed that they make a smaller version of the sundae (half its size) for $5.00.  The banana slices reminded me of a Filipino banana (saba banana) where the flavor of the cooked banana is different than the usual banana - a bit sweeter and firmer in texture.  This sundae is definitely for sharing!

If you decide to make it a shopping day at the Las Americas outlets, you have to stop by for a quick sweet snack!

OMG, I was just there...on Saturday too. We missed each other! :)

Actually we got there at 10 right when the outlet stores opened (I had to do a return) and I did see the stand and was thinking, Man, it's too early for churros. I have heard good things about it and your posts has convinced me to NOT pass it up next time! Looks so good!

Oh my gosh, third time's a charm, CC -- my comments aren't working on my Blogger app on my phone! I thought it would show up, but it hasn't. Sorry that it's taking me long to respond to you!

We really did miss each other. We got there at 2pm and it was madness. Never again will I arrive that late! I know, CC... the next time you go, you have to have the churros! It's never too early, jk! Also, $3 is pretty good if you just want a taste, and it was more than enough! Good to hear from you!
