I recently discovered a new churros place at The Central in Clark Quay, La Lola Churreria.
It is located to the right of The Central’s entrance from the MRT station. The red neon sign on top of the entrance is very eye-catching.
La Lola Churreria has both hot and chilled churros. There are 4 flavors of chilled churros to choose from – dark chocolate, white chocolate, strawberry and matcha.
If you want only hot churros, go for Clasicos [S$6.50/3pieces, S$6.90/6 pieces, S$9.90/12 pieces, S$13.50/18 pieces].
If you want a mixture of hot and chilled churros, you can choose either Assorted Mix [S$8.50/3pieces, S$9/6 pieces, S$12.90/12 pieces, S$16.50/18 pieces] or Ultimate Mix [S$9.30/3pieces, S$9.90/6 pieces, S$14/12 pieces, S$19.50/18 pieces] depending on how many flavors of chilled churros you want.
Dips are sold separately at S$3, S$3.50 and S$4 depending on the size of dip. There are 5 dips to choose from – signature chocolate, dark chocolate, matcha, cream cheese and purple yam.
I have here 6 pieces of hot and fresh Clasicos [S$6.90] churros with Signature Chocolate [S$3] and Cream Cheese [S$3].
The churros are made using authentic Spanish recipe and fried in olive oil upon order. The churros are then sprinkled with sugar crystals and cinnamon powder.
These are definitely the longest and fattest churros I have ever seen. They are perfectly crispy on the outside but the inside are a little soft for my liking. Just a few more minutes of frying and it would have been perfect.
I personally find the churros too sweet, almost to the point of bitter. It is coated with way too much sugar and not enough cinnamon powder to balance out the sweetness.
Signature Chocolate dip is also too sweet, dark chocolate might be a better choice. The creaminess and tartness from Cream Cheese dip brings the sweetness to a manageable level.
Besides churros, La Lola Churreria also serves savory snacks. I didn’t have the chance to try them, but that Barcelona Sandwich [S$8.50] sure looks good.
