Churros

A churro is a fried-dough pastry based snack. Churros are popular in Spain, France, the Philippines, Portugal, Ibero-America and the Southwestern United States. In Spain, churros can either be thin or long and thick. They are normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate.

I saw a stall selling Churros at Bugis Village and I went to try it. S$3.50 for small churros and S$4.50 for large churros. You can choose to dip in caramel, nutella, condensed milk, hot chocolate and so on. I chose condense milk, oh mine, it is so heavenly sweet with the condensed milk. It is a nice dessert or snack after your main meal.

I would like to have it again if I go to Bugis Village again.

Yums.

Weekend is here, have a good and sweet weekend everyone!

Cheers!

RG ate this in Barcelona recently too. You like this or yau char kwai better?

This (churro) and yar char kwai are different, churro is western while yau char kwai is eastern and to me, churro is sweet while yau char kwai is saltish, yau char kwai dip inside coffee or soya bean drink is nice

I like churros very much dipped in chocolate sauce. But I ate only once at a restaurant.

Rumor has it that the Spanish tried to make yau char kwai after seeing it in China, but they did not know how to make the batter correctly, so the churros texture is different.

Originally they eat it as it is, or dip in coffee or hot chocolate drink. Dipping in chocolate sauce is an even later adaptation.

I have not tried this yet but I first saw this selling along the streets in New York City. There was a long queue of people so I walked away as it was winter time.
I am not sure whether Auntie Anne sells the same thing as they look similar with dipping.

I know one is from Europe and one from China, I am asking about which taste you prefer. Did you know that wiki says there are some theories that they were brought to Europe from China by the Portuguese and is based on China's yau char kwai. You can read more here:

Churros is very big in Melbourne too, but strangely, the best churros I had was in Latvia (of all places) where they had very thick hot chocolate to dip it in. Yum!

Actually, I think yau char kueh dipped in hot chocolate would be nice too. It's nice in Milo, if in a thicker chocolate liquid, I'm sure it'll be awesome. It's just a little oily and maybe not as crispy but it has its own merits. :)
