Time Out Melbourne

This Vic Market icon is up there with the moccasins, woollen car seat covers and bongs – only a lot more delicious. The hot, crispy Spanish-style churros served from a retro van have been feeding happy market shoppers since the 70s. This is a world away from the Krispy Kreme doughnuts you find in suburban shopping centres. These old school sugar-coated dirty doughies are as delicious as they are unhealthy. So, so delicious. You know it's good when the paper bag becomes translucent from the oil and batter.
