Best Mexican dessert: CHURRO ICE CREAM SANDWICH at ROCCO’S TACOS & TEQUILA BAR

Best Mexican dessert

Imagine an ice cream sandwich made from a circular churro. The sugar-coated fried dough is split in half in order to encase a creamy disc of spicy Mexican cinnamon ice cream. The aromatic spice combined with the luscious, sweet pastry makes you forget any ice cream sandwich that has come before. I can’t imagine different flavors improving the dessert, which disappeared as though I were eating with ravenous wolves. 2223 N. Westshore Blvd., Tampa. 813-800-8226, roccostacos.com. —JPC
