The place is indeed incredible! They’ve got an all you can buffet that includes an incredible assortment of pizza, pasta, chicken, salad, soup and desserts..

One incredible savory offering was there Spicy Peanut Butter pizza. It’s a pepperoni pizza with peanut butter spread and several peanuts sticking out. It’s definitely unique and incredible ;).

From the sweets selection; I found the churro donuts to be one of the most incredible desserts ever! It was so soft and sweet; a perfect treat pre-playing games!

You are sure to be incredibly amazed and full at the end of your meal here!

Hello The Grail Churros & Ice Cream!

“Not all who wander are lost.”

Wanderlust is defined by the strong desire to wander and for this Hello Kitty Foodie, I often find myself wandering to the hottest and sweetest spots in town. Such was the case when I found myself “wandering” to The Grail Churros and Ice Cream shop in Redondo Beach.

The Grail Churros and Ice Cream is a new sweet shop that recently opened up in Riviera Village in Redondo Beach. Specializing in churros and ice cream, it is truly a gem of a place. The fact that their name is “The Grail” is perfect; as it symbolizes the prize at the end of wandering.

Each of their offerings here is indeed a prize. One has the option to choose between a sixteen inch churro stick with dust, glaze and toppings, a cup/cone of ice cream or even a combination of churro and ice cream via their Sahara tent; ice cream plus churro or their sandstorm; churro ice cream sandwich. They also have signature churros via their matcha churro, campfire churro, magic wand churro or the churro con cafe. The campfire churro is similar to a s’more; with the churro dusted with honey graham crackers, glazed with melted marshmallow and drizzled with hot fudge and mini marshmallows. The magic wand is indeed magical as it glazed with purple cosmic dust and is sprinkled with colorful stars.

The ice cream choices here are equally as fascinating as their churro. They’ve got yummy classics like cookie dough and butter pecan as well as exotic flavor like Ube (purple yam) and Langka (jackfruit). Perhaps one may be surprised with the Filipino flair in their ice cream. The Pinoy touch is no coincidence as The Grail is partly owned by the half Filipino Sakr brothers. The Sakr brothers are also the brains behind another South Bay favorite;  Torrance Civil Clothing.

If choosing between churro and ice cream is hard; the Sahara tent or sandstorm are perfect choices. The Sahara tent is one sixteen inch churro with one scoop of ice cream while the sandstorm is a churro ice cream sandwich with one scoop of ice cream, choice of dust and one topping. Dust options are matcha, signature cinnamon, spanish espresso or cosmic; a lovely purple dust topping. Toppings include honey graham crackers, sprinkles, m&ms, captain crunch cereal and more delights.

Upon my trip here, I chose to get a sandstorm dusted with cosmo dust, paired with langka ice cream and topped with Captain Crunch cereal. Sugarlust indeed.

Hello Churroholic!

First cupcakes and then pie….now the latest food trend to be making its mark is churros!

The fried-dough pastry snack originating from  Spain and Portugal is definitely taking the foodie world by storm. These delicious fritters can be found from Costco to Disneyland. It’s not just at your local store or amusement park however because now there are specialty shops specifically specializing in the sweet treat! One of these places is Churroholic.

Churroholic is a cafe offering handcrafted churros, coffee and ice cream. They are the sister shop of popular boba shop, Hiccups and can be found next to several Hiccups locations. They have locations currently in Anaheim, Paramount and Carson, California and future branches will be opening in Whittier, South Gate and Santa Ana, California.

I recently had the (sweet) pleasure of visiting their Carson branch; the newest of all their locations. This place is definitely churro heaven. Their churro menu consists of flavors of original or glazed with chocolate almonds, chocolate sprinkle, coconut chocolate, matcha pebbles, and cookies and cream. Churros can be purchased solo or with ice cream. They also offer churro sandwiches and sundaes. As they mention on their website, dessert is definitely their passion! At Churroholic they really work to offer the freshest churro you will find in town and I noticed first hand them making fresh batches.

My handcrafted choice was the Cookie Monster ice cream and a matcha pebbles churro.

The cutest churro with ice cream ever was served. Not only was it pleasing to the eye, it was pleasing to the palete as well.  The freshly made churro was perfectly warm and crisp. The fruity pebbles were a nice sweet touch. The ice cream was sweet and milky smooth. Hmm not only did I become a Churroholic that day but a Cookie (ice cream) Monster too.

Like many of the food trends in the past years; churros are sure to become a favorite for many. It certainly is a new dessert favorite of mine and I for one have a churro crush.
