2012 World Churro Eating Competition – St Kilda Festival

Last year in 2011 the guys at Spanish Doughnuts held the World’s first churro eating competition at Federation Square and even got covered by the 7PM project.

This year they’re going to gather the crowds at St Kilda Festival 2012 on Sunday 12th of Feb at the Melbourne Salsa Stage, Latin Quarter. I’m pretty sure all you need to do is rock up before 3pm and be 1 of 8 lucky contestants picked out from the crowd and if you can eat your way through the most churros in 2 minutes then you score a whopping $1000, just for eating a bunch of churros. I might even give it a go and hope I get chosen!

Now this makes me want some churros!!!


Here’s some details on the event but if you want to know more make sure you visit the Spanish Doughtnuts website!

Place: St Kilda Festival, Melbourne Salsa Stage, Latin Quarter

The Churro Truck – Vic Market – Churro King’s

Do you know of the Churro Truck permanently parked at the Victoria Market Peel St end? Of course you do because it’s the best churros and freshest churros around. Hordes of people stand there like zombies waiting for the churros to be freshly cooked because we all know churros are best when they’re warm.

The guys let me hop inside the truck and take some photos to see the churro cooking in action and so I could get some nice photos. When the churros are done they’re hung for a minute to let it cool slightly and then chopped into churro pieces and served fresh with a dusting of icing sugar and an optional choice of warm milk chocolate sauce.

The churro truck is open everyday except the days when Vic Market are closed which is Monday & Wednesday  I like my churros plain with some icing sugar and passing the churro truck when I’m in the area I just have to get some. Say hello to the guys in the truck, they won’t bite.
