Just when we thought Papi Churros had a hit the new summer treat trifecta (fried dough, sugar and a little more fried dough), they have outdone themselves again.
It's that time of the summer and today is finally the day: Les Papi Churros is releasing their churro cones. That's right, an ice-cream of your choice lovingly placed into a cone made entirely of a churro.
We'll give you a moment to collect yourselves.
While we don't want to toot our own horn, it seems like just last week that we were raving about Papi Churros' gourmet churro bar while lamenting that ice cream is really the expected summer treat though. Did we speak too soon? Did we give them the idea to marry the two?
Ah, of course not. These guys are professionals.
Don't believe us? Check out this video of MTL Blog's very own Olivia Lyle hanging out with the owners and getting the scoop on their churro cones and their journey to Montreal from Haiti.
Any company that decides to cook a crispy, cinnamon covered pastry into a cone shape and then top it with soft-serve ice cream doesn't need us.
Just behold the absolute beauty of these delectable cones:
With the churro cones, you still have all the great choices for toppings like Oreo cookie crumble, an assortment of nuts, marshmallows, and chocolate, caramel or strawberry sauce....ok, you get the idea.
If you can put it on your ice cream, they probably will have it as an option at their bar.
There are over six different cones right now and three of them are named after the owners. So if you want to pay respects to these churro geniuses, try ordering:
The Papi Marco: Oreo, and Nutella
The Papi Christo: walnuts, marshmallow and dulce de leche
The Papi Tonio: graham biscuit, strawberry
If you want to take a break and cool down today, this may just be the perfect place to do it.
