Dine Out : La Churreria

March 1, 2012

Last weekend the hubs and I stopped in for lunch at La Churreria in Nolita which was opened last December by the owners of the neighboring Socarrat Paella Bar. It is a wee space and you are in extremely close quarters with your fellow diners. The decor has a charming European feel with cheery Spanish tiles lining one narrow countered wall opposite a row of four small elevated tables along a mirrored wall. We ordered a Pepito De Tenera, a sandwich of marinated steak, caramelized onions, manchego and green peppers served on a toasted baguette. The meat was flavorful if slightly toothsome. We also got a Classic "Bikini", a Spanish toasted sandwich with ham, cheese and crispy onions. It was quite tasty as toasted sandwiches go. A side of home-made potato chips accompanied both. Our meal concluded with "churros for one" and a side of artisanal dark chocolate. These arrived at our table piping hot since they're made to order. The lightly sugar dusted strands were crispy on the outside with a nice chewy and light texture. On their own, some people might consider them a little bland but a dip in the rich velvety chocolate is an instant fix. I liked that they didn't feel greasy and they're definitely good enough to satisfy any churro craving. We saw some people coming in to pick up some churros rellenos which are stuffed versions with filling options that include chocolate, chantilly cream, hazelnut spread (nocilla) or seasonal fruit compote. Next time...

  17. I'm salivating just looking at these photos. I'm constantly amazed by the sheer number choices of eating places you have in NY. No wonder most New Yorkers I know don't cook.
