Hugo’s Churros: Tacos and Churros
We don’t make a habit of visiting the McArthur Glen Designer Outlets out in Richmond very often due to the airport traffic and the lack of stores that appeal to us. However, we wound up visiting in early December to try and get some Christmas shopping done. Mall food, especially at outlet malls, have never been one of my favourites… it’s usually just okay enough to get you through the shopping trip. However, I was actually pleased with this visit as we got to try out Hugo’s Churros.
They actually serve more than just churros… we wound up ordering a trio of tacos ($12 I think): Chicken Tinga, Beef Barbacoa, and Pork Carnitas served on double 4-inch tortillas. I was actually very pleased the way these tacos came out. The tacos were overflowing with juicy filling so we split up the filling with the extra tortillas. A bit messy, but to be expected. Make sure you grab some of the extra hot sauce at the front counter.
Of course, we couldn’t come here without trying a Churro ($3). These long and thin deep-fried pieces of crispy dough remind me of snacks you’d get at the fair.
The interior of this place is actually quite spacious with lofty ceilings and an airy, industrial vibe going on. If I come back, I might want to try their churro ice cream sandwich.
