Churros, dawg!, a churro and refresqueria food trailer, began serving the neighborhood Friday at noon at 3401 N. Shepherd Dr.
“We decided to elevate churros to a gourmet-style similar to gourmet donuts,” said Dan Nguyen, who owns the food trailer along with his wife, Marley.
Along with churros, the food trailer specializes in artisan hot dogs, hence the name “Churros, dawg!”
The specialty churros on the menu come with various toppings, like the Strawberry Clouds, which is a churro topped with strawberry shortcake crumble, fresh whipped cream, sliced strawberries and strawberry drizzle.
“We make everything fresh,” Marley said. “There is hardly anything in our truck that we buy. We make the whipped cream, syrup and more. Everything is made with love.”
The couple, who is from Pearland, has family connections to the owners of the shopping center at West 34th Street and North Shepherd, making the space an ideal launching pad for their new business.
After Friday, Churro, dawg! will operate from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday.
