Ah, Valentine’s Day. It has a tendency to sneak up on us every single year, doesn’t it? It feels like one minute, we’re wandering through fields of twinkling Christmas lights and the next, the romantic holiday is already here. So, if you totally blanked on gifts for bae this year, don’t fret. You can still pull off a last-minute surprise for your S/O or BFF with delicious heart-shaped or XOXO treats at Toronto’s El Habanero & Churrobar.
The XOXO churros will be available until V-Day, while supplies last. But you can still enjoy the heart-shaped desserts until the end of February.
And the sweet-treat potential is huge here.
You can savour the delicacies on their own, but they are especially delicious on top of ice cream sundaes or the iconic churro stacks available at this spot.
While the novelty of the unique V-Day-inspired hearts is undeniably cute, churros in general rarely tend to disappoint.
So, as far as last-minute gifts go, it doesn’t get much sweeter than this.
And with a wide rotating menu of mouthwatering churro cakes, churro sandwiches, and more, you’re going to want to come back again and again.
Do we smell a new Valentine's tradition baking?
Can’t make it to the restaurant? No problem.
A limited number of heart churros will also be available for purchase at the McEwan Foods stores at Don Mills and on Bloor Street in the 6ix.
Perfect for the couple who’d rather stay in on V-day.
If you want to take your last-minute plans to the next level, you can also enjoy a variety of authentic Cuban eats here as well.
Those could be the perfect precursor to the sugary delights you’ll be indulging in later.
As an added bonus, the prices are totally reasonable, which is great considering you probably didn’t have time to budget this last-minute date night out.
So, go on. Make stuffing your face romantic this Valentine's!
