I do not know too many people that would say no to chocolate, and a trip to Chocolateria San Churro is definitely something you should not say no to.
Had a great time with my friend and our mothers group here recently
I was on my way into the city driving along Glebe Point Road, and there it was. On a street where every second shop is a café, my eye caught the sign and anything with the word chocolate in it is all the excuse I needed to stop. The window display of the menu and coffee cups with churros was very inviting, making you want to go in. It’s very simple inside, yet cosy and warm. The yellow on the walls and dark timber furniture really complimented each other well. There were two sections. One as you walk in with high bar tables and chairs which I must say are my favourite, and the other section had your standard tables and chairs.
My friend and I happened to arrive just as the mother’s group had settled in with their babies for a morning of catching up and baby talk. They told us that this was their weekly ritual comprising of coffee, cake, and a chat. We wanted to be part of their group, so we practically joined them.
The Death by Chocolate cake
There was a lot that grabbed our attention straight away. There was chocolate everywhere. Immediately on entering, we saw a tower of marshmallow covered with chocolate wrapped in clear paper, and I knew I was taking one home with me. We made our way over to the window where a number of treats awaited us. From small mouthfuls of chocolate to large slices of cake, the choice was yours. The small chocolates included a range with flavours such as Dark chocolate and Vodka, Chocolate De Coco - which is a blend of coconut and praline covered in chocolate as well as Café Con Leche. This has a combination of milk chocolate, caramel, coffee and praline. All these small treats were $2 each.
If you are in the mood for something a bit heavier, then you might like to try a truffle bar. The selection included Cookies and Cream as well as Hazelnut. These are $3.95 each.
Delicious chocolate dipped strawberries
Purely for research purposes only we decided to try the chocolate covered Strawberries at $3.50 each. These were not your ordinary sized strawberries. They were huge and covered in either milk or dark chocolate. We had one of each. I must tell you these were something I wished I had taken home, and was able to devour in the privacy of my own home. Upon the first bite, the chocolate cracked and juice ran down my arm. It was delicious. The strawberries were not only fresh in taste - they also smelt like fresh strawberries. However, being in public we had to use some restraint. It was messy with chocolate falling everywhere, as I said something that should be eaten at home and thoroughly enjoyed.
For the good of the blog, I felt it completely necessary to try the Death by Chocolate cake ($8.95), and am I glad I did. Rich, sweet, brownie and chocolate fudge all rolled into one amazing slice of indulgence. Needless to say the pain in my stomach kept saying "stop" - however my eyes kept saying "you can do it." We did not opt for a coffee. With water readily available, this was our drink of choice. We needed to keep hydrated after all that chocolate. The mothers group had a mixture of the Classic Spanish hot chocolate ($5.95), Milk Couverture ($5.95) and one mum had a Peanut Butter Melt ($6.50), which she said was worth every cent if you are looking for something with a nutty flavour.
There is also a store located inside for take home packs. Available for purchase are hamper packs starting at $39.95 which includes chocolate, a cup or mug, hot chocolate mix, and a few other goodies. You also have the option of creating your very own hamper. Small boxes are $9.95, and large boxes are $12.95. However, you might like to have a chocolate experience at home by purchasing their Ceramic Fondue Set for $29.95.
There is a large selection on the menu. Definitely something for everyone. With several locations across Sydney including Bondi, Chatswood, Harbourside, and Macarthur Square; I would recommend you stop in for a slice of pure delight.
