It’s crazily popular in South Korea at the moment. You can practically find it everywhere as nearly all the cafes and even Mc Donald’s sells it for just 1500 won!

One of the most popular shops is called “Churro 101” with the bold catchphrase “Better than a Boyfriend”. It definitely lives up to its name as the chain has recently expanded to Singapore!
