Where to find the best churros in Singapore
1. Super Loco Robertson Quay
Warm churros and riverside views? Yes, please. This Mexican-inspired ‘Cocina Y Bar’ serves amazing tacos and frozen margaritas by the Singapore River. The Super Churros are a must-have – they’re oh so crispy and served with a decadent, spiced Mexican chocolate sauce.

2. La Taperia
Brought to you by the Les Amis Group, the same folks behind Bistro Du Vin and Peperoni Pizzeria, La Taperia is all about familiar Spanish classics. Dusted with cinnamon sugar and served with chocolate sauce, these churros are as authentic as they are delicious.

3. Churros Republic
The Spanish donuts served at this joint are Singapore’s only Michelin Preferred churros! These doughy sticks are handcrafted and made fresh daily using a traditional Spanish recipe – they even come in bite sizes for fuss-free eating. Wash it all down with a mug of butterscotch brew, a frothy cold artisanal soda reminiscent of the butter beers found at Harry Potter theme parks around the world.

Don’t want to head out to get your hands on good churros? No problem. Chulop delivers piping hot, bite-sized churros right to your doorstep. Order the original flavour if you prefer a more traditional taste, or go local and try the pandan churros coated in desiccated coconut and served with an in-house gula melaka dip.

6. Common Man Coffee Roasters
The churros at Common Man Coffee Roasters are a hit with dessert lovers – hurry down, because these babies are only available from 10am to 6pm.
