Chocolate Fix at San Churro - Mei Yee
Ever since arriving in Sydney, I’ve always wanted to try churros, simply because I’m a fan of fried pastries and chocolate. Last weekend, while shopping in Chatswood, we spotted Chocolateria San Churro and decided that we should pop in for a snack. Churros are also known as Spanish doughnuts that are long and lean, with ridges on the surface. These deep-fried pastries are made from light flour and water batter and have a crispy, golden appearance with a wonderful aroma. A common breakfast food in Spain, it has evolved around the world and become a popular snack at any time of the day.
We ordered the Churros for Two set, which came with 6 pieces of freshly fried churros sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and 2 chocolate dips. Saucer, as usual, went for the dark chocolate dip and I chose the hazelnut chocolate. Boy, did they smell gorgeous! Apparently they serve melted couverture (high quality chocolate that contains extra cocoa butter) chocolate imported all the way from Spain. It was very fragrant, smooth, thick, rich and chocolatey. My favourite of the two was the hazelnut chocolate, which had a subtle hazelnut aftertaste that lingered in my palate after each dip.

Delicious hazelnut chocolate dip
The churros were crispy and light, but not oily. Dipping it into the melted chocolate when it’s still warm was the best way to eat it. The cinnamon sugar lightly dusted on the churros also gave them a sweet note that made the churros taste good just on its own. It was completely different from my previous experience of eating churros which were oily, soggy and heavy. This was clearly the signature dish of San Churro not to be missed.
Perfect afternoon snack
As the napkin said, “Better to have enjoyed and made a mess than never to have enjoyed at all”. So go ahead, make a mess and have fun while you’re at it!
