Our road trip to salt lake city continued. We picked link up from the vet and we checked out the Salt Lake holiday events. Right outside temple square we stumbled upon the San Diablo Churro truck. I honestly really loved seeing it parked right outside the temple. While I don’t know the religious leanings of the owners of the truck, it seemed like an intentional joke to me. Honestly, it is the only reason we stopped by the truck. Eating at a San Diablo Churros truck right outside a church really plays to my sense of humor
San Diablo Churros
San Diablo Churros’ core belief is that all churros should have a soul, and the soul of the churro is their delicious sweet filling. Their standard fillings are dulce de leche, sweet cream, and nutella and they rotate other fillings seasonally. When we visited in november the season filling was mixed berry. For those who aren’t into filled churros, they will sell you a soulless churro. However, we like our churros with a soul. Stephanie Ordered herself a dulce de leche churro while I ordered the mixed berry.
Stephanie won by far when it came to who had the better churro. The mixed berry filling was basically a super sweet jam, and to me the sweetness was just overwhelming. But I am not the biggest fan of sweets, so others may have loved it. Stephanie’s dulce de leche churro was AMAZING. Dulce de leche is apparently what churros have been missing for ages. The cinnamon flavor pairs perfectly with dulce de leche and makes for a perfect sweet treat.
The prices at San Diablo are pretty reasonable. It is $3 for a filled regular mini churro or $4 for a specialty flavor. You can also get all three regular flavors for $7. As I wanted a specialty flavor and we weren’t super hungry we spent $7 and each got one.
San Diablo Churros are an amazing sweet treat. Most importantly I really enjoyed the humor of parking right outside the temple. While my churro was a little to sweet for my tastes, Stephanie’s was absolutely fantastic.
