Popping up around town, the new craze about churros has hit our shores.
We dropped the news about South Korean chain Churro 101 opening its first outlet in Bugis+ a few months back. A second outlet at 313@Somerset has since opened, selling the same “Better Than A Boyfriend” branded fried dough sticks. What to try: bestseller dark chocolate churro ($5.40), classic cinnamon churro ($3.50) and churro set that comes with ice cream or hot/iced coffee ($5.90-6.80). #B3-49, 313@Somerset, 313 Orchard Road
Also saying annyeong is yet another South Korean franchise, Mr Churro. Its first outlet opened last month in ION Orchard. The first kiosk was opened by Jungwoo Hong in 2013 as a way to earn money to marry his then-girlfriend. Better than a husband, then? What to try: 50cm original churro ($4.50) that’s in a cute loop shape, nutty churro ($5.90) with dark chocolate sauce and peanut-almond topping, ice cream churro ($6.50, go for the Singapore exclusive banana milk soft serve). #B4-61 ION Orchard, 2 Orchard Turn
