A Place of Incredible Taste – 180
Semi-crunchy with a soft center. Decadent dipping sauces including house-made Xocolata (chocolate), Marshmallow Swirl, Caramel + Roasted peanuts and more. Deep fried at 180 degrees, giving this incredible treat factory its 180 name, Portland’s location for the best, classic, Spanish xurros is not subject to debate.
