The best churros in town at Mai Crafts


AT Mai Crafts Boutique Café, one recipe that has been handed down from one generation to another. Churros – which is a favorite street staple in Spain – used to also be the favorite pastime snack of the late Leonie Malferrari from Cagayan de Oro City. As Leonie grew older, she passed on the churros recipe to her daughter Mai Malferrari-Ballesteros.

And so Mai Crafts Boutique Café was born in 1995 along Apolinar Velez this city right in front of Sentro 1850 in between Hayes and Chavez streets. It is the only place in Cagayan de Oro that serves churros. They are available in trio, half dozen and a dozen with free chocolate dip. Churros are a type of fried dough from Spanish and Portuguese cuisine.

They are fried until they become crunch and may be sprinkled with sugar. The surface of churros is ridged and they are generally prisms in shape and may b straight, curled or spirally twisted. Churros are always eaten with tsokolate drinks and it is the reason why Mai Crafts Boutique Café also serves dark hot chocolate drink mixed with prue tablea.

Mai Crafts Boutique Café also serves sandwiches, pizza, pasta and French toast along with coffee and non-coffee drinks.

They are open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and they are available through Grab and foodpanda, too.
