Sweet and crunchy!
This popular Spanish dessert has been around long enough for it to become our grandma’s favorite after meal snack. Did you know that a churro is simply made out of butter, salt and flour? It sounds easy, but not really. The secret to every perfectly golden churro lies in the cooking process.
We don’t know why we had to wait so long for the churro invasion of Manila, but we’re glad that a lot of places are now serving this beautiful dessert! Here are some places around the city where you can get your sweet churros from.
Churreria La Lola – multiple branches
At 10 branches in under 2 years of operations, La Lola is undoubtedly the most popular churro joint right now for its Instagram-worthiness, authenticity, and variety. If you’ve seen a couple of bearded Spanish dudes hanging around at one branch, that’s probably La Lola’s owners, Sergi and Dani, checking up on operations.
