Habibi's Funnel Cakes Opens In Tustin
has finally opened in Tustin in the space previously occupied by a Robek's. Yes, it seems like an unlikely place for a funnel cake place (it's nowhere near a ferris wheel or something remotely county-fair-related).
But now that it is here I'm breathing a sigh of relief, because for the longest time since they put up their permanent sign, it didn't seem like it was going to happen. I did announce it back in April.
For what it's worth, though I took this picture when before operating hours, it looks like it will do the funnel cakes exactly as advertised in the pictures--drizzled with syrup, chocolate and strawberry at the very least, and dusted with an excess of powdered sugar.
Oh yes, I know what tonight's dessert will be.
