Lincoln Heights’ Dodger-Themed Churro Mobile is Everything We Love On Wheels

    After conducting an emergency Monday morning meeting of our internal Taco Justice League, we here at Los Angeles TACO feel we just wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t bring L.A.’s churro-dispensing, Dodgers-loving VW Beetle convertible to everyone’s immediate attention. Just in time for the first All-Star game at Dodger Stadium in more than 40 years.

    Though Churros El Bochito began operating in Los Angeles in 2019 and has been after an absence for nearly a year, it only entered our consciousness this weekend when L.A. TACO staff reporter Janette Villafana brought a video to our attention that shows the L.A. flag-waving, blue-and-white love bug crossing the new Sixth Street Bridge in triumphant glory to a tune by Grits.

    A metal station attached to its flank looks like a small churro counter, strapped with a deep-fryer, space for dispensing five different dipping and drizzling sauces, a counter for sprinkling on sugar and cinnamon, and an extruder that squeezes out fresh churro dough to go into the vat of oil.

    The car sells hot churros made-to-order, in various permutations like churro bites, filled churros, and Fruity Pebbles-encrusted churro sundaes, and with steaming mugs of hand-whisked hot chocolate. One may also find fried Oreos, elaborate cantaritos, funnel cake, fresas con crema, queso-drowned Hot Cheetoes, and fried plantains aboard. It sets up Thursdays through Sundays in Lincoln Heights, is fully bookable for your respective get-downs, and embodies just about everything we love about Los Angeles.

    From the video we see, Churros El Bochito is also capable of shining a literal blue spotlight into the sky like some kind of churro Bat Signal beckoning you to its location. An LED display on the windshield also announces the day’s offerings. It is, from everything we see, cooler than KITT, the Millennium Falcon, and DeLorean's DMC-12, combined.

    Plus, on top of everything else, the churros look fire.

    But don’t take our word for it. Check out this video of Churros El Bochito flying its orgullo azul through the streets of Los Angeles yourself in this video.
