I was in Downtown Vancouver yesterday and decided I could spend the afternoon searching for Churros. According to Foursquare (my trusted and fave application), I could go to Tacofino Cantina, a food truck along Howe Street since it's the closest to my location yesterday. I walked 10 minutes and asked if they have Churros available. It was out of stock! The guy suggested I go to their main restaurant at Gastown but I am too lazy to walk all the way there.
Last week, I also went to Cambie Village to search for churros. The only restaurant there that offers churros is Las Tortas and it's also out of stock.
Going back to yesterday, I remember Therese saying that Cineplex sells churros so I searched for the nearest Cineplex and the Scotiabank Theatre is a 6-minute walk. I also did a quick Google search for the food stalls to make sure that they actually sell churros.
I searched the menu of OutTakes Backstage Bistro and yes, they sell churros! I started my walk going to the Theatre in high spirit, excited that at last I will be able to bring churros to my sisters. Alas, upon arriving at the Theatre, I won't be able to buy snacks because you have to have a movie ticket to access the snacks area. Ugh.

I am now tired and hungry. I started my walk going to the Sky Train station and realized that there is a newly opened Cineplex on my way home. I will be able to descend in the Marine Drive station where the newly opened Cineplex is located. I don't want to get my hopes up but finally, the Outtakes Backstage Bistro is accessible without having to buy a movie ticket and yes, the churros are available!
I purchased a burger and added churros to my meal. After eating my Cheeseburger Deluxe meal, I carefully wrapped the churros to bring home to my sisters. I feel like a success.
As soon as I arrived home, my sisters were nagging me to give them the churros already. It was hilarious. When I gave it to them and we all took a bite... moment of truth. They both said that it tasted like cinnamon sticks and not the churros we were familiar with. Oh well.
