Surprising churros in Portland
180 Xurros takes a gourmet approach to the traditional churro you’d expect at a carnival. Their secret weapon is in part due to the equipment. They use a fancy xurro deep fryer sourced from Spain. Each churro is made-to-order from hand-worked dough to delicately fried pastry. Once out of the fryer, churros undergo a variety of enhancements. The original gets a light dusting of cinnamon sugar.
