After walking around, we were getting hungry for merienda (mid afternoon snack) & DiploBaby was asking if we can have CHURROS. TD did a little googling & found this place to enjoy churros in a modern way called CHIRUSA EXPERIMENTAL.
CHURRERÍA CHOCOLATERÍA MENU
We ordered the TARDE DE CHURROS (12 churros + 2 hot chocolates + 2 dips) and they gave us 3 more dips so we could try the different flavors they had that day.
As you can see it’s a super small place, ideal for those who like sitting in a bar or doing take-away.
It is both a CHURRERIA…
And a CHOCOLATERIA.
You can see both angles of the place here.
DINING IN ARUGULA
Because the place is small, it’s bar seating only. To make us more comfortable, they said we could eat at their partner resto ARUGULA. There we could really sit & rest and order some drinks.
We also met their resident doggie. She was very shy but oh so cute. I wish I had a better pic!
These fans are what we call paypay in the Philippines. It’s so interesting to note the cultural similarities because of our 300 years under Spain. Of course colonialism isn’t cool, but it’s a reality that Filipinos live with… we were under the Spanish & Americans so you can see the things we inherited until today.
The pistachio dip was surprisingly yummy for the adults, while our son liked the “nutella” one.
The churros themselves are thinner than Valor or San Gines but super crunchy & yummy.
I would definitely recommend this place, even for takeaway. Take your churros to a park or eat at home. Can you tell DiploBaby enjoyed it from this pic?
