Spanish Doughnuts: A Whole lot of Churros

How many churros can you eat in 2 minutes?  I was asked this question.  I had to think about it.  Though I love churros very much, I don’t think I will be able to eat as many as I would like to.

Churros has only started to be enjoyed by Australians lately. A few churros stores and food trucks have popped up around Melbourne giving the locals a try of these crunchy fried dough pastry.

I was unfamiliar with churros until my visit to America many years ago and saw them in push carts around tourist places.  Even then, I didn’t know what they were and wasn’t too keen on trying them.

Fast forward about a few years later, I had my first taste from the first store I store and fell in love with them.

I had an opportunity to attend a Churros tasting at Spanish Doughnuts.  We were offered a plate full of chocolate covered churros called Bombons

To be honest, I can’t remember everything we tasted but they were all delicious.  I think my favourite one was the peanut butter one (pictured on the right in the middle row).  I don’t usually like peanut butter in my sweets and dessert (I know, I’m crazy) but it didn’t have the  “stick-to-the-top-of-your-mouth” texture that I don’t like.

After downing all those bombons, you’d think that it would’ve been enough but we were looking for the classic churros.  Then this arrived at our table.  The churros was crispy and covered in chocolate and caramel and dusted with icing sugar.  How can you go wrong with that?

  4. I’ve never seen so many kinds of churros! Churros drizzled in chocolate, caramel and sugar are just dangerous ..

  5. I can’t believe you guys had churros for dinner! I couldn’t just eat sweet things for dinner, hence why I had to eat something before all that chocolate the other night!
