A very long time ago, DJ Rehactor and Mobblees were shocked to discover that I had never eaten churros before in my life. Vague plans were made to visit San Churro at some point in the future.
Well that day finally came!
Unlucky for us, the day was a hot one, meaning it was not the best weather to enjoy overly sweet things as they tend to make you even thirstier.
Nevertheless, we stuck with our plan and ventured to San Churro Chocolateria in Glebe.
The selection of desserts in store looked appealing.
But since I had come for my first taste of churros, that was what I ordered.
You can order it with your choice of chocolate (white, dark, milk) and with cinnamon or icing sugar.
The churros were.....a bit of an anti-climax. There wasn't anything wrong with them per se, but the combination of the chocolate sauce with the churros was just a bit dull. The flavours weren't very exciting.
The chocolate sauce was very sweet and the churros tasted like fried dough.
DJ Rehactor ordered a white chocolate hazelnut mousse from the dessert window.
It tasted like white chocolate, but neither of us could taste any hazelnut.
To wash down my churros, I also ordered a drink.
I think that was the name of the drink - it was a combination of cookies and white chocolate.
I was hoping for something deliciously chunky like the cookie shake that I had enjoyed at the Counter Burger.
Alas, I was disappointed as this was quite watery for a cookie shake and was unbearably sweet. Half the glass was all I could drink before I cried for mercy and some water.
I also thought that the price of the shake was a bit high considering its quality.
So I'm glad that I got the chance to finally try some churros but probably would not go out of my way to visit San Churro again.
