Carrollton has its fair share of interesting and culturally diverse dessert shops (jipangi, anyone?), but a newly-opened shop brings a unique twist on a sweet treat that Texans are already huge fans of: the churro.
Churro Alley recently opened its doors at 2540 Old Denton Road, bringing the city’s hottest new dessert trend. The spot is known for its deep-fried churros, which folded in half to form an oval of sorts instead of the traditional stick-shaped churro that you’re used to ordering at the State Fair of Texas.
Once the churros come out of the fryer, they can be dipped in a variety of toppings, ranging from chocolate and coconut to Fruity Pebbles. To gild the lily, the loopy churros can be dunked into a cup of soft-serve ice cream, to which even more toppings can be added. The spot is reminiscent of The Loop in Orange County, California, also known for its bunny ear shaped churros dunked in a variety of toppings.
Churro Alley is now open for business as of last week. The doors open at 3 p.m. and stay open until 10 p.m. except on Friday and Saturday, when dessert enthusiasts can score churros until 11 p.m.
