Chocolateria San Churro

Hi everyone,
Hope you're all enjoying the week so far. Adelaide has been having such gorgeous weather these past few days! So much warmth and sunshine. I'm loving it! Hopefully it will be this nice tomorrow when I go out for lunch with my sister and childhood besties.

I haven't been out this week because I've been at home attempting to do homework. My attempts are failing rather miserably, but it's the thought that counts, right? :P
Today I wanted to do a brief post about a place which I visited earlier in the year, Chocolateria San Churro. After a birthday lunch, my best friend A and I decided that we needed to visit this place since we were already on Rundle Street and it had only just opened (this was way back in early 2013).

We opted for some things to share since we were still really full from lunch.

Fondue for two

We really enjoyed this! We loved the rich, creamy chocolate and it tasted great with everything. We didn't really enjoy the brownie though - it was more like a piece of bad chocolate cake. The churros weren't too bad, but we both agreed that the ones from ChurrOz, a food van here in Adelaide, are much, much better. These weren't as crunchy on the outside and fluffy on the inside, but much more doughy. Not the worst churros I've ever had but not the best, either! If you've never had churros before, I would recommend trying them here, though.

Peanut butter melt

I felt like a glutton drinking this. It was SO rich already, but was made even richer with the spoon of chocolate covered peanut butter. The flavour was definitely there, though. I love the pairing of sweet and salty foods, and this didn't disappoint me. I would definitely suggest skipping this if you were as full as I was that day. Also, the mug that it came it was huge. I could only manage to finish half of it! This would probably be a great drink in the evening in the middle of winter because of how warm and rich it is.

I don't remember the price of each item, but we ended up spending around $16 or $17, which I don't think it too bad for what we were given. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and it was quite busy, however our order came out only 5 or so minutes after we had ordered and the staff were really friendly. I also quite like the decor - who knew orange and brown could look that decent? I've been past on various Friday and Saturday nights, and the line up was often pretty crazy - people were lining up all the way to the corner of Rundle Street. I'd like to come back some time and try their sundaes and possibly even their macarons.

Edit: I completely forgot to mention the horrendous state that the bathrooms were in. Firstly, A and I had such a difficult time locating them because there weren't any signs (this might have changed since I was last there). We were directed through a door at the back of the eatery which lead outside. I won't go into detail because I don't want to risk you feeling sick, but I was just really shocked at the state they were in. I'd suggest avoiding them, unless you're desperate! I think I might have to deduct a point for that...
It might seem a bit much, but does anyone else take into consideration the state of the bathrooms? I think they play a pretty important role as part of the customer service aspect. If the bathrooms are grotty, and they're on display to the public, imagine the state of the kitchens behind the closed doors!

Overall, I'd give it an 8/10  7/10. 

By the way, I saw Despicable Me 2 with my siblings yesterday and it is SO adorable! I had a 23 year old next to me who was also laughing throughout the movie, so don't feel as if you're too old to see it. I'd definitely suggest taking your younger siblings, children, cousins, nieces or nephews to see it. They'll love it!

Have a great week everyone :)
