Churros!


What else can I say hey, it's crispy-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside-covered-in-icing-sugar-dipped-in-chocolate goodness!

I must say though, there is a Max Brenner vs San Churros debate in my household. We just can't decide which one we prefer, and we live pretty much an equal distance from the both of them. Well, I guess it's just another reason to keep going to both to erm...research!


Sean very nicely thought that since I like chilli and chocolate, he would get me the new-ish Fire and Ice truffle. It's basically dark chocolate with chilli and mint. The idea sounds really appealing, and I really think that it would work, but unfortunately, this particular balance is not for me. I'm not the biggest mint+chocolate fan, but I'm not completely adverse to the combination. With this particular chocolate, however, I can't really taste much of the chilli before I'm promptly slapped in the face by the mint. And not in the good-chilli-hits-you-like-a-two-tonne-truck kinda way. It's more like a challenging-slap-you-with-a-glove kind of way, and I'm not sure that I like it.


The White Chocolate and Raspberry Cheesecake is rich and decadent. The tartness of the raspberry delicately balances the thick fudge-y texture of the cheesecake, and the sweet nuttiness of the almonds finish the mouthful nicely.


I didn't try the hot chocolate, but I heard that it was very good!! Love the mug.

...doop dee doo...

On to more food!!


My favourite: the cookie milkshake!!! Mmm..Cookie Cha Cha. It's basically a cookies and cream milkshake, and how can anyone not like that!


The churros are fantastic, as they always are, and for those who are unfamiliar with this tasty pastry, it's pretty much been described as a Spanish doughnut. And I don't think it's that far off...but who can fight with the magnetism of fried dough! All fried dough is good.


I love the little inscription on the side of the hot chocolate mug. It adds an air of worship to the consumption of these sweet morsels.

And the napkins are fabulous too!! I definitely agree with them. hehe.


"Chocolate shall be your salvation" indeed. ;)

Cookie Monster Milkshake! Wow. I walk past a San Churros nearly every day...perhaps I should go in and try more than the Churros.
