Churros & Ice Cream
When it comes to a dessert that you should find at just about any Mexican or Spanish restaurant a churro tops the list. Although the origin on the churro has been linked to Spain it has made its way to other cultures as well. Nothing is better than an amazing fried churro and a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A churro is made from some batter that is then piped into hot oil where it is fried. Once it has reached the right color and consistency the churro is pulled from the oil and dropped into a cinnamon and sugar mixture. They are served hot and ready and just like that or with a scoop of ice cream. This is a delicious way to finish off any meal.
Another option that you can find in many Latin restaurants is flan. This is a dessert that is a staple to most places and many people have their own beloved recipe. Flan is a custard cake that is usually baked in a single dish and served individually. The two main ingredients are milk and eggs that are prepared in a way that you get a smooth, silky texture. If you want a soft and smooth dessert at the end of your meal this is the way to go. It is fun to try this dessert from new places to see the different variations that are used and the final result.
You can also go eat at a Spanish, Latin or Mexican restaurant and at the end of the meal order sopapillas. The interesting thing about sopapilla is that they are versatile and you can see them on the menu for a meal or the dessert menu. The actual sopapilla is some fried dough that is then topped or filled with something else. The dessert sopapillass are often fried and served with honey that you can use as your topping to give them a sweet taste. They are a warm and delicious dessert that you can choose to have.
