Horchateria

No Comments

“Viva los churros!” is the quote that will greet you at the Horchateria Rio Luna cafe. Located in Paramount, California, Horchateria opened its doors in March 2016, and boasts a menu with traditional Mexican treats like the concha (a pan dulce found at any local panadería in Southern California), churros, agua frescas, and a variety of horchata. Horchata is traditionally a rice-based beverage with cinnamon and sugar but this cafe steps up their game by creating ice cream sandwiches with their conchas, and ice cream sundaes substituting churros for bananas. *Drools*

There are vegan options available and a variety of sweet sauces for your churros. During my outing with two other friends I ordered an horchata iced coffee and churros with a Nutella and lechera drizzle. It was decadent. It was sweet. It was gone quickly. My friends ordered concha ice cream sandwiches and one had a cajeta drizzle. The ice cream itself was horchata flavoured so expect hints of cinnamon. Overall, this cafe is a must and you should definitely make the trip out here to indulge and willingly put yourself into a sugar coma. Added bonus: souvenirs are sold including totes, dia de los muertos-styled items, concha-shaped bags, and lots of Frida decor. For a full menu, click here.
