Treat your tastebuds to some deliciousness
Chocolate there should be a picture of it in the dictionary under 'love-hate relationship'. We all love the way it tastes, smells and even feels in our mouths, but we also hate what it does to our waistlines. It's an on going internal battle we all struggle with deep down inside, whether we admit it or not but I'm willing to put all differences chocolate and I may have aside anytime I stop by Chocolateria San Churro at the Sunshine Plaza.
We're lucky to have it here in Maroochydore it's one of only two stores in the entire state. Located in a prime spot on the riverwalk, this is the place to go if you're trying to either impress someone or fatten them up with delicious chocolates. They've got a great set up with dozens of tables, chairs and even a few couches here. It's very welcoming to anyone families, couples, and groups of friends.
Some delicious churro in dark chocolate dipping sauce
San Churro, as you may have guessed from the name, is a Spanish chocolate café. The specialty here, naturally, are churros- the Spanish doughnut made fresh in store before your eyes. Each serving of churros comes with a dipping chocolate of your choice milk, white or dark (my favourite). But that's not all they've got on their great menu.
The desserts are some of the most popular food items and the Tres Choc Pudding has to be one of the most delicious and visually stunning items. It's a mixture of warm chocolate pudding with hot chocolate custards and dark melted chocolate topped with raspberry coulis it's very rich but very delicious. A couple of other favourites include the choc banana sundae and the cakes.
Take it from me, the Spanish Hot Chocolate is the ultimate drink to accompany your meal. The authentic Spanish recipe is thick, dark and rich. I'm surprised my spoon doesn't stand up in it when I dip it in it's that thick.
The Sunshine Plaza store also has a small retail store inside for anyone wanting to take a bit of San Churro home with them. The almond alimentaries, biscuit fingers and chocolate blocks look to die for. I've even done a bit of gift shopping here. The Cubitos meaning little cubes are small chocolates and are always a winner.
