HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Who says you need to leave Houston to cure your churro cravings?

Can you say "fried chicken and churros" and "churro ice cream sandwich"? Read on.

Red Velvet Churros
If anyone knows how to transform a traditional dish into an ingenious treat that hits the sweet spot, it's Bosscat Kitchen and Libations' chef Peter Petro whose culinary creations include Fruity Pebbles French Toast and a breakfast burger presented on a cinnamon bun. Just as noteworthy is the decadent red velvet churros with a side of cookie butter cream, so artfully displayed, you won't want to spoil the presentation. But something tells us you will. 4310 Westheimer Rd.; 281-501-1187
