Miraflores, Peru - let me tell you about this tasty place - Manolo - a coffee house, an ice-cream parlour and a restaurant. But what I came here for were the churros! Manolo Churros has been in Lima since the late ‘60’s. Located on a busy street corner on Larco Avenue #608 and Schell in Miraflores, this is a fantastic place to grab a chair on the patio, watch the world go by AND enjoy a hot cup of spanish chocolate and a piping hot churro (or six)! Although I’ve learned that many people begin their day with a cup of hot thick chocolate and churros, I found it was the perfect way to end my day before walking back to the condo near the cliffs of Miraflores overlooking the Pacific Ocean.Churros come in several flavours - plain, chocolate-filled, manjar blanco (caramel or dulce-de-leche), vanilla-flavored whipped cream.My favourite - the plain!And why not enjoy a cup of super hot super rich spanish chocolate - chocolate so thick you can stand your churro in it! So then I thought I’d add whipped cream to the mix. Sweet overload but definitely delicious!
