Eating carbs for dessert isn’t something that I can comfortably do without intentionally undereating during the meal beforehand. Eating dessert as a meal itself, as fun as that sounds in the moment, is never a good idea. So after filling up on light noodles, N and I headed over to Oliver Brown where we had wanted to try the churros for some time. It’d been over 6 years since I last had churros (at San Churro in Glebe), so another taste was well overdue!
We had the Baked Churros for 2 ($12.50) — 12 churros with milk and dark chocolate dipping pots.
Unlike your typical deep-fried churros, these are baked. They get their shape from the press that’s used. The churros are fresh, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, which makes for a very satisfying and more-ish dessert. The cinnamon on many of the churros was a tad overly generous, which made gave the churros a harsh and bitter taste when eaten by itself. The bitterness was easily solved with the milk chocolate dipping pot, but was accentuated by the dark chocolate. Without cinnamon though, I think the dark chocolate dipping pot would’ve been quite tasty. The amount of chocolate in the dipping pots was just right for 12 churros.
And the Rose Lemonade ($6.50). N’s on a quest to find zesty lemonade without having to make it herself. Disappointingly, though, this tasted like Schweppes Lemonade mixed with rose syrup.
