When someone asks me what exactly is “churro”…I don´t know exactly what I can say, because it is not a dessert, it is not a dish and it is not exactly sweet and it is not exactly salty. It is just that: “churro”.
“Churros” is eaten for breakfast or in the afternoon, but it is not a food that you eat every day. In Seville, for example, where you can also eat “churros”, the best day to do it is Sunday in the morning. In the capital of Andalusia, some people use the word “calentitos”.
Students from Prilep who were in Spain the last two weeks eat “churros”. “Churros” is the noun in plural. “Churro” is the singular, but be careful, don´t change the last “o” for “a”. It is not the variation of the word in feminine and the meaning is different. Don´t confuse the two things ;-)
