Churro Borough started as a catering operation back in 2011, and after a few pop-ups, (which featured long lines at Mexicali and Ramekin), it will open its first brick and mortar in Los Feliz within the next few weeks (the exact location hasn't been released yet). A family operation, Sylvia Yoo and her brother Paul Yoo wanted to open a place where Sylvia could cultivate her love for making ice cream and pastries after graduating from International Culinary Center in New York.
What to look forward to? One will be able to get the original churro ice cream sandwich, along with a full selection of handcrafted ice cream and sorbets, churro fries, shakes, and seasonal paletas. Everything will be small-batch, made daily to ensure quality taste and flavor. In the future, Churro Borough will add a local Los Angeles coffee roaster featuring cold brew coffees, as well as agua frescas and pastries for carry out.
Sylvia's past career as an interior architect enabled her to design the space herself. Since Churro Borough started from the streets, it will have a similar vibe with custom murals done by street artists, and have a simplistic design to highlight the artwork. Look out for more info soon, as Churro Borough finishes its final touches.
