The churros craze came and went a couple years back, but Chulove Cafe remains fervent in its obsession with the fried dough pastry, setting up shop at VivoCity, in a white-washed space with a view of the Sentosa waters.

Showcasing its golden brown sticks in a glass display by the entrance to draw the attention of passers-by, the eatery offers churros in all shapes and forms – from standard-sized and flavored long ones to mini nubs and circular ringed ones.

If you’re feeling too adventurous for the classic version ($5.90), you can go for a handful of piping hot bite-sized churros ($3.20-$3.90) that come drizzled with your choice of vanilla, caramel, white chocolate, or dark chocolate. To add to the sweetness, top it all off ($1 extra) with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, crema catalana foam, or matcha foam.

But a word of warning: Our first cup of those mini pieces of fried dough turned out rock hard – perhaps they’d been sitting out a tad too long – so ask for a fresh batch if you can.

For those who prefer their snacks cold, the long sticks ($3/one) come covered in everything from almonds and pistachios to marshmallows and coconut to salted egg and puffed rice.

Oh, and here’s something new: savory sandwiches ($5.90) — think churros instead buns — stuffed with fillings such as ham and tomato, tuna and avocado, chicken, cheese and pesto, and salmon with sour cream. It’s slightly strange to think about a churro sammie, but if you’re looking for something different from your usual cold cuts and bread combo, these crispy creations are worth a try.
