I had my first ever churros back in college when my Spanish professor set up a fair celebrating Spanish culture through music, lifestyle, and food. We had seafood paella and cinnamon churros.
I just love Dulcinea’s Churros con Chocolate. For only Php 98 you can indulge yourself on 5 pieces of golden looped strips of batter. Dulcinea’s churros are crisp then slowly turns chewy as you eat them. It also comes with a demitasse of hot and dark semi-sweet chocolate that’s sooooo rich and heavenly!
I’ve heard some people complain that their churros is too oily. Well, it’s not like oil’s dripping out of the dough. And I’d rather have it with oil than eat it bland and dry.
