Churros for tea

The thing about holidays is that I struggle to tell the days apart.  Sometime last week,  we went to Han’s in Subiaco for lunch.  It was possibly our least favourite meal of the trip.   We were walking back to the apartment when we saw Chocolateria San Churro across the road.  

The boys didn’t need any convincing, so in we went.

We ordered some churros to share, which were served with dark chocolate and caramel dipping sauces.

The caramel sauce was the clear favourite, but in any case, none of us like dark chocolate all that much.  The churros were crunchy and tasty, but I think my favourite churros were had at least 14 years ago in Bayswater, London.  A man had a little kiosk just outside the Bayswater tube station, and he’d sell piping hot churros.  He’d fill the churros with a choice of filling – caramel or chocolate, for £1.  When I moved to London six years ago, I tried to look for the man and his kiosk, but to no avail. Shame. No churro has tasted the same since.

The decor in the cafe was pleasing to the eye.  Great contrast between grey and orange which Hubby and I took note of.

That’s it, I think it was Easter Saturday, and the cafe was jam-packed with families enjoying get – togethers over coffee, churros and chocolate.  I wandered over to the shelves on the left to check out their merchandise, and ended up buying a hot chocolate mug as a souvenir. 

Hubby was pleased with his coffee fix for the day while I washed down my churros with a pot of earl grey tea. 

We drove past the cafe many times in the last 10 days, but again, didn’t go back for more.  I’d definitely revisit San Churro’s should we find ourselves back in Subiaco again.
