Although Americans may be familiar with the churro they get every year at the local county fair, it doesn’t compare to authentic xurros ( chu rō) from Spain. Originally dreamed up by husband and wife team José Chesa and Cristina Baéz, long time friend David Martin joined forces with the couple to bring 180, Portland’s first xurreria, in order to share the traditional and beloved Spanish xurros. José and David were raised eating these scrumptious treats in Spain and are eager to transport those young and young at heart to the streets of their youth, where they can watch xurros made to order and fried at 180 degrees celsius (hence the name) through large windows in the open kitchen space. The menu features plain, sugar & cinnamon, chocolate covered, or filled xurros, expertly paired with hot chocolate supplied by Cocanú and coffee from Local Roasting Company. Bon Appetit Magazine named 180’s xurros as one of the Best Desserts of 2016, Eater featured 180 as one of the best doughnuts in the country, was a top pick by The Oregonian, and Portland Monthly Magazine named 180 Portland’s Best Dessert of 2016. 180 has also been featured on the Travel Channel’s Food Paradise, in Forbes, Vogue Magazine, Vice Munchies, and more. 180 is open Wednesday and Thursday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., located at 2218 NE Broadway St.,Portland Ore. 97232 Website: www.180pdx.com; Twitter/Instagram/Facebook: @180pdx; email: email@example.com phone: (503) 477-9163.
