Margarita Gralia's Churrerías

One of Margarita Gralia's "churrerias" in San Miguel de Allende
These two restaurants are known for their out-of-this-world "churros." Churros are made out of doughnut dough, but instead of being shaped like a doughnut, they are long like a hotdog, though not as thick. They are sprinkled with sugar and are usually hollow in the center.
The center can be filled with "cajeta," a soft carmel-like filling, or with chocolate. You can also eat them without any filling - equally delicious! Dip you churros into a cup of hot chocolate and you're in heaven!
The location at La Luciernaga mall, "Churros y Chocolates," is a pure "churreria." The one downtown in the centro, called Cafe San Agustin (Aan Francisco #21), is a full restaurant. They also serve great breakfasts, lunches and diners.
The owner is the famous Mexican TV and theater actress Margarita Gralia. If you come to San Miguel de Allende (SMA) I highly recommend these eateries. You won't regret it!
