The Spanish and Portugese may have perfected their churro formula with dairy and eggs, but the Australians have reinvented it with a vegan formula. San Churro is a dessert shop with locations throughout Australia. They offer all types of sweets, but the specialty of the house is, you guessed it, churros.
San Churro isn’t a strictly dairy-free shop, not by any means. But their vegan-friendly churro recipe is complemented by a whole menu of vegan desserts and drinks. And we aren’t talking about a few basic offerings. The sweet selection ranges from a Fruit and Churros Fondue to The Happy Vegan, a handmade churro bowl, rolled in cinnamon sugar, filled with vegan Salted Caramel & Honeycomb gelato, drizzled in dark chocolate, and topped with fresh strawberries and smashed Oreo cookies. No joke.
Although many restaurants shun dairy-free and vegan offerings, the CEO of San Churro, Giro Mauric, sees them as a natural evolution:
At San Churro, our brand motto is mi casa su casa. We want all people to feel welcome in our stores, and to leave with a fun, vibrant and memorable experience. Ultimately, our new menu delivers on this, offering a greater range of choice for all our customers—vegans and non-vegans alike.
For thirsty customers, San Churro also offers Bonsoy, Almond Milk, Dark Chocolate, and Creamy Coconut Foam to make many of their sips dairy free. They also use fairtrade certified and organic coffee for all of their java drinks.
