Horchateria Rio Luna is a coffee shop fusing traditional Mexican flavors with American treats and desserts. Located in Paramount CA, HRL is a sweet place for the mouth as well as the eyes! They have the coolest little Mexican Heritage items for sale! From Frida hand painted pillows, Concha keychains, to pins with classic Mexican iconic imagery.
My husband and I decided to spilt one of their iconic Concha Ice Cream Sandwiches, and Mini Churros. And OMG! It was seriously delicious! Not just filled with vanilla ice cream, get real! But authentic Horchata creamy ice cream! With walnuts for the perfect about of crunch and a Cajeta drizzle that ties everything together.
The mini churros are the perfect treat for someone like me who isn't huge on sweets. And these are not your typical churros from the fairy or even disneyland. These churros are so fluffy and fresh and come with any side dipping sauce of your choosing!
If I have the ability to shop anywhere, sign me up! lol I loved that they had children's books that highlighted Important Mexican Figures, Coloring books, Pillows, Purses, Candles, Pins, and everything had an awesome Mexican Culture twist.
I purchased the Concha Keychain which everything I take it out people are asking me where I got it! And this adorable pin with those bomb pin wheel chips you can buy from the Elote man lol (That would be the Corn Man for the gringos) You know with the lemon and the chili?!
My husband also ordered a small coffee which our fabulous server mentioned to him that she can make it ultra delicious by adding in some steamed Horchata! Not steamed milk, but steamed Horchata! Im loyal to my Starbucks but man! I took a sip of my husbands and it was BOMB!!!!
All in all our experience at HRL was an A+! The service was impeccable, the food was out of this world, and the overall experience was the perfect way to start our Sunday morning. My only advice for future diners would be to get there early because people tend to line up fast! Ive seen photos on yelp of lines all the way out the door!
