Finally San Churro’s has hit Adelaide (about time we got something). Having tried my first San Churro’s in Perth I was craving for more. I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews about Adelaide’s store (mostly negative) but I actually really like it.

Dough sticks are deep fried till they are hot, crunchy and crispy. You can have these bad boy dusted in cinnamon or icing sugar – I’ve tried both :) The cinnamon was more noticeable than the icing sugar but I prefer the icing sugar as gave it an extra kick of sweetness. In the Churros for Two, you get a choice of 2 dipping pots (dark chocolate, milk chocolate, caramel and white chocolate). The caramel didn’t have much taste sadly :( I much prefer the chocolate pots – the dark and milk chocolate was smooth and delicious but they tasted quite similar to me. 

Churros Churros For Two – 6 churros and 2 pots of melted couverture chocolate

Pretty giant sundae filled with scoops of chocolate icecream and brownies sneaked in, all finished with a ton of whipped cream and drizzled melted chocolate. It tasted alright but nothing that tickled my fancy too much.

San Churro Ice Cream Sundae – 3 scoops of chocolate ice-cream, choc brownie, whipped cream and melted chocolate

This peanut butter melt was too sweet and rich even for me. The actual hot chocolate itself was quite thick, and in my opinion it felt like just drinking melted chocolate. It comes with a spoon full of peanut butter covered in hardened milk chocolate. Not sure how I was suppose to eat this so I just dunked the whole spoon in and let it melt in. Bad choice – this left a very lumpy texture from the peanut butter. Not fun :(

I actually came here on my birthday as they gave a free Churros for Two voucher for signing up to their newsletter – definitely added the cherry on top of my day. Crispy churros dipped in delicious chocolate with lovely, attentive staff – what is there not to love? Thumbs up from me!
