Okay, so we kinda stuffed ourselves at another restaurant before we decided to have a walk around to Cafeteria Churreria. Silly yes but still the sweet stuff was needed! We had been in Spain for a week, and we hadn’t had tapas or proper churros yet! I was probably on a bit of a mission, so as I said we had stuffed ourselves (funnily enough with tapas as you can read here….) Then pudding was required, yep freshly made churros with the hot chocolate to dip them in. Hmm, absolute heaven!
We sat down outside (yes outside in December) and ordered two servings, they looked terrific, but they didn’t look like the over sweet doughnut style ones we get back in England. So… the first bite, hmmm it certainly was very different to what I was expecting. It wasn’t a sweet dough at all, if anything I would say the batter used was saltier then sweet, it wasn’t drenched in sugar either. It was the same with the hot chocolate dipping sauce, it wasn’t very sweet either and had the consistency of almost a thick chocolate custard.
It made me wonder where we have got this very distorted view from of this beautiful Spanish treat, as after eating the proper stuff it’s hard to compare it to the imitation you can find over in England.
Anyway although it was as I expected it was lovely and a proper little piece of Spanish history.
