Brunch @ La Churreria, NYC
On my way to 82 Mercer Street one Sunday afternoon, I realized that I’ll be getting off at the Broadway/Lafayette stop on the D line. Since I was running late and had already missed the brunch at the IACP Book Festival, I decided to google the new churro shop on Mulberry Street. Luckily, it was just 3 blocks away.
The place is small yet had such character with a modern vibe. It’s so euro as techno music was playing in the background. Since I’m not in this neighborhood often, I asked the server about the most popular items. I’m craving for something sweet and something to give me enough energy for the afternoon ahead.
Of course, churros and chocolate was a must order. The churros were served warm and the chocolate hot and thick. The server told me that the way to consume them was to dip the churros in chocolate.
For the more substantial part of brunch, the server told me the calamari was the most ordered bocata. I now understand why – the calamari was so fresh and tasty. The pimiento gave the sandwich a nice sweet burst of flavor.
CLOCKWISE: (1) Regular churros with the chocolate dip. (2) Calamares Fritos Bocata. (3) Store front.
