Once a year, in mid September, Peakhurst comes alive with the Spring Fair, organised by the Lugarno Lions Club. It’s a big deal, once renowned as the second biggest fair in Sydney, the biggest being the Easter Show. I don’t think it still holds the title, but it does attract around 40,000 people each year.
One of the attractions is the food, ranging from gourmet burgers to the dreaded chip-on-a-stick an the obligatory Gozleme. I always look for the doughnuts, of course. This year, it was a bit lean in the doughnut department. It was Churros or nothing.
Or as they call them, ‘Spanish Doughnuts’.
Dos Churros obviously go around to the fairs and markets to ply their trade. The guys, who aren’t Spanish, cook the churros while you wait, so they’re nice and fresh and warm when you get them.
I got a pack of four. You can get the chocolate dipping sauce which is also warm.
The churros were nice, crunchy on the outside and oily on the inside. The guy making them popped them in a bag then dusted them with crystal sugar, so only the top half got sugar. I felt like the whole churros could have used the sugar.
The Spring Fair only happens once a year, so if you want churros from Dos Churros at any other time of the year, you’ll have to keep an eye out. They don’t appear to have a web presence.
