Churros Factory #B1-01
Spanish donuts take on a local twist at Churros Factory with ondeh churros ($5/3 pieces, $8/6 pieces), which are infused with pandan, drizzled with gula melaka sauce and topped off with coconut flakes. Believe it, the churros stay crisp even a dozen Instagram photos later, and fluffy on the inside. There’s savoury too: the BBQmayo-cheese-egg ($6.50/3 pieces, $8.50/6 pieces) reminds us of classic okonomiyaki, just sans bonito flakes. Tel: 8500 0700
