69. Churros at Sra. Martinez

While churros are a staple of Spain, Michelle Bernstein's version at her tapas-style Design District eatery, Sra. Martinez, are decidedly upscale. This fried dessert is crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, and sprinkled with a generous dusting of sugar. Chef/owner Bernstein says the secret to her churros is that she makes them longer and fatter than regular ones. It could also be that they are served with a melted chocolate dipping sauce, which is laced with a touch of cream and cayenne pepper. Fried dough never tasted so good.
