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 🙂

Mmm just like Hannah, I agree peanut butter anything rocks!! These churros look terrifyingly rich though…
They were… I felt quite ill after the final one 🙁 I’d recommend one at a time, and not 10 in one sitting 🙂
agree with fatbooo, those churros looked really rich
Indeed they were!
Add “Nuts Gourmet Bombon filled with Peanut Butter, which was my favourite of the lot” to the list of why we were destined to be Angle Babes together, m’dear! 😀
Lalalala… I knew it.. that was the secret coded sign deigned just for you!
Oh wow… I don’t really have a sweet tooth but I love anything Peanut Butter flavoured! Can’t wait to go there to try the one you had. Sounds like a nice simple snack to have in midday hehe… =)
Yeah, it would be great for a mid 3.30pm-itis snack!
Ohhhhhh, those churros look delicious, especially in the top pic. One more place I have to go when I finally make it to Melbourne…
Yeah 🙂 Those in the top pic were probably made up of 6 different flavours (same markings, different fillings) 🙂
Peanut butter and churros?! Wow, that sounds like a match made in donut heaven!
Indeed it was 🙂
Looks darn sinful!!! hehehehe
Anything that has chocolate is sinful 🙂
I was so churro-ed out after that. can’t look at churros the same way again. #doody :p
HAhaahahhaha.. #doody.. gosh I can’t eat another churro for a long while!
Haha Churros-ity! What a good new word in the foodies’ dictionary! Great pleasure having you I-Hua.
Thanks for having us there!!
How would you stuff a churro? I agree that the peanut butter one sounds great!
I have no idea… Maybe roll it out, then put the stuffing then roll it back? I should have watched them make it! Maybe there’s a stuffed churro making machine!
