When Ashley from Food Pampering Yourself invited me to dine on some Spanish Churros with a few other bloggers, I was more than thrilled and excited. I love fresh Spanish churros. So nothing could stop me on my way to meet them.
So on we went, the 4 of us to Elizabeth Street and nearly walked past the shop. If you blink, you might miss it. It’s not a big sit-down dessert eatery. Rather, it’s a tiny outlet in the CBD that sells churros on the go. With the city’s hustle and bustle, and crowds moving in a quick pace, it makes perfect sense to cater churros on the go.
Spanish Doughnuts specialises in stuffed churros. They have around 20 different churros and fillings, and we ate about 10 flavours which ranged from the Triple Chocolate Gourmet Bombon filled with Chocolate (we were assured that this was their best seller) to the Coconut Gourmet Bombon filled with Strawberry.
Truth be told, by the 4th churro, I was getting all my flavours mixed up. However, one did stand out clearly, which was the Nuts Gourmet Bombon filled with Peanut Butter, which was my favourite of the lot.
To top the night off, we had MORE sugar filled churros. This time, crispy fresh classic churros 🙂
