San Churro, Chatswood, Glebe, Parramatta
Sick of Max Brenner and Lindt Cafe? Overrated? Perhaps try San Churros. Thanks to my savory tooth, I am personally not a fan of chocolate and other sweet desserts. San Churros is something I would actually consider going to on a Friday night.
They have actually just opened a new franchise in Parramatta so its best you make the most of it now before everyone else finds out and just like every other Churros franchise, it would eventually be packed out. If you come here, you must order the churros which is basically a doughnuty biscuit/roll covered with sprinkles of icing sugar for you to dip into your selected sauces.
The churros were crunchy even if they were a tad oily (since they are deep fried). I found the accompaniment of the dark chocolate sauce very average as it reminded me of the typical chocolate cafes. The only excitement was eating the churros only lol.
The other sauce which we ordered was the raspberry sauce with cream. This was by far better than the dark chocolate. The raspberry wasn't too sweet and it had a bit of sourness which went well with the cream. The cream also being icy cold was a nice contrast with the hotness from the freshly made churros.
Service was fairly average mainly because it is always so packed out. Last time I went, being a Thursday night, the average wait was 20 minutes for you to recieve your order. Though I guess that goes to show how popular it actually is.
Please note that my prices are not accurate as it was only based on an estimation on what was roughly paid per person and my poor memory.
