churros + chocolate

• 25 comments •




Churros con chocolate are a popular breakfast food in Malaga. The churros are usually accompanied by a cup of thick Spanish hot chocolate. I found the hot chocolate to be far too thick to drink on it's own - but perfect for dipping. Apparently, it's not uncommon for people in Spain to eat churros throughout the day and late into the evening, as whenever we walked by Casa Aranda, there wasn't one empty seat... and there were a lot of seats. In fact, the entire street is reserved for a restaurant that, by the looks of it, only serves churros, "hot chocolate", and cafe con leche. Every single building on the little road was full of completely occupied tables for this one cafe. The road itself was also so full of tables that it was hard to just walk through let alone grab a seat for ourselves.
This was our second time trying churros. The first was in Mexico City where they were sweeter (covered in cinamon and sugar). Since I have a sugar addiction, I preferred those ones and Alex liked the Andalusian version better. Update: Alex has informed me that I am a liar and that he also prefers the "Mexican" churros. I am sure that you guys will forgive me seeing as Alex's churro preference will likely never be of any use to you.

  4. I worked in Spain for about six weeks in 2006, and the fact that churros and chocolate were both acceptable breakfast foods pretty much propelled Spain to the top of my Most Awesome Countries list. (Also responsible for my expanding waistline.)

  9. I found your blog via hope chella.

    churros are very popular in Mexico and you are right, they are commonly sprinkled with cinammon and sugar.
    I could use a cup of hot chocolate right now, it's below freezing here in the Midwest.

  11. Interesting! I have never heard of Churros and Chocolate. But given the fact that sugar is my main form of survival, I'm sure I would love it. I think I am with you though...I'd probably prefer the sugar ones ;)

  16. Churros are one of my favourite foods - and, having spent quite a lot of my childhood in Malaga, I have to say that some of the best can definitely be found there!
