After months of empty talk, Shum and I finally tried the churros at Molten Lava in 1 Utama. (Churros are a type of Spanish doughnut made from sweet potato dough and deep fried till crunchy.) Besides a range of churros, they also sell cupcakes, carrot cake, roti prathas and toasts. We settled for the Churros with Molten Chocolate Lava Dip (RM5.80), which was freshly fried and dusted with icing sugar. Beneath the crispy exterior was a warm, pillow-y soft centre that was not overly sweet. A pity the chocolate dip was diluted; it did not coat the churros nicely.
For the price tag, the portion was stingy (the display picture looks so ample). 4 sticks of churros for RM5.80 is not cheap, especially when I can eat two plates of these and still want more. Maybe it’s time I learn how to make them. Save myself some moo-lah! The coffee Shum ordered was from Nescafe or a local coffee brand. I cannot take local coffee without milk or sugar, as they have some sort of “coconut oil” taste. Blergghh! Seats are limited, and unless you’re wearing jeans or shorts, it’s best not to attempt their high chairs outside the shop. Miniskirt lovers, you’ve been warned! =D
Verdict: The churros is lovely, but the same cannot be said about the chocolate dip.
