Churreria La Lola

‘Churros heaven’ – to me, is an understatement when it comes to the bounty, and variety, of churros at Churreria La Lola. Churreria La Lola is a locally grown concept in Manila, serving the best authentic Spanish Churros – and the franchise is now in Iloilo! It is located on the ground floor of Iloilo’s ‘most beautiful mall’ and Megaworld’s pride, Iloilo Festive Walk. Over the years, since its inception in 2014, Churreria La Lola has enamored the churros-loving crowd. To add, Filipino-French celebrity Solenn Heusaff is the endorser of La Lola.

A traditional pastry with roots in Spain and Portugal, churros is a fried-dough, predominantly choux, based snack enjoyed anywhere in the world. Churros can be thin, knotted, or long and thick. Traditionally eaten for breakfast, dipped in chocolate or dulce de leche, churros has evolved into an everyday favorite – dipped, coated, customized –  and enjoyed anytime of the day.



Beginnings of Churreria La Lola. The first La Lola store opened to the public, December 2014, at the Powerplant Mall in Rockwell Center. The concept became so popular that long lines were formed in front of the 10 square meter store that offered freshly-made Churros Clasicos with chocolate dip along with sandwiches and coffee. Today, La Lola has 17 stores across the country.
