Chomping on Cartoonish Fritters

Rating: 3/5

Holy copyright infringement, Batman. Seemingly at every turn, a different American cartoon character is endorsing a local restaurant or shop, unbeknownst to their creators across the border. At least Spongebob knew to back a winner. Near La Paz’s Mercado Francisco Madero, Spongebob graces the walls of a churro stall. The open-air booth fries their dough sticks to order until they become crunchy, with just enough give in the center. A woman rolled them in a liberal coating of cinnamon and sugar until they achieved satisfaction on a granular level. They slide the churros into a brown paper bag, so it’s easy to snack and stroll.
