Traditionally consumed as a breakfast, snack or dessert staple in Spain, this freshly fried, elongated piece of dough happens to be a very popular dessert option in both Adelaide and Melbourne. My trip to Spain would not be complete without clarifying the finer details on churros; from how it should be consumed to the texture and quality.
Chocolateria San Gines, Madrid
Tucked away in one of the little streets near Mercado San Miguel, this place was still packed full of both locals and tourists at 2pm. Service is very fast and simple: place and pay for your order at the cashier, show one of the waiters your docket and he will get you seated. Within a few minutes, your order will sail onto your table.
Churros was definitely freshly prepared and not overly chunky in terms of measurements. Best enjoyed immediately!
Horchateria Santa Catalina, Valencia
Yet another famous horchateria but this time, located in Valencia. Famed for it's horchata, fartons and churros, be sure to not miss this place. If you are really into the churros hunt, Horchateria El Sigho is located across Santa Catalina so you could easily have a churros ball there:)
