Make the most out of every day.

Since I was already in Alabang, why not visit the churreria I've been eyeing on since it opened? Who wouldn't want to hit 2 birds with one stone, right? So after our lunch at Butamaru, we headed to Alabang Town Center for my dessert.

We parked and just walked our way to ATC Corporate Center. The best way to get there is to take the Madrigal Avenue exit of the mall (if you came from the mall itself).

We entered the place and it was cold and empty. After ordering, we sat down and patiently waited for our churros to be served. A few minutes after, a sever arrived with a small pitcher of water and some paper cups.

After around 10 minutes, my order of small classic churros (P60) and a cup of hot chocolate dip (P110) arrived. The dip comes in one size only, and I think it will suffice for an order of their largest servings.

I liked their churros. It's petite size was just right for me. It also wasn't bland so dipping it in just a little hot chocolate worked well for me. The hot chocolate tasted like it was made from cocoa powder. It was good, but I appreciated the churros more when I dipped it in less chocolate.

This place is fantastic! The ambiance is simplistic yet dainty. Despite having big doors and windows, the shop is well airconditioned and is a perfect place to be in a scorching hot weather.

This is dangerous. I think I'm going to crave for their churros. I also can't wait to try other items from their menu like their flavored churros. I am a bit intrigued.

Finally tried this out with my gal pals and I must say, their churros are good! Best with the hot choco to add some pizzaz. The churro itself was crispy. The hot choco had the right consistency that really goes well with the churro. Perfect afternoon snack at the town!

There was something missing on the taste of the churros though the place was really nice, we ordered the 18pcs of churros but we did not even eat half of it.

Was finally able to go during the daytime and get a decently lit picture! 128513 as per Clarissa P's suggestion, I tried the chorizo (chorizo ba?) with honey and prosciowith stewed tomatoes 127813. Both were around 60 each, ok Na for a snack I think! Both were pretty good especially the one with honey.
I ordered another thing na parang weird, i ordered the mango flavored one pero when it arrived, frozen sya? As in matigas! When I asked ganun daw talaga 🤔 anyways I didn't like it 128539

I promised my sister that we would try the latest Churros store at ATC. Since we already bought an Ice Cream Sandwich, we considered this as our second dessert. The store is located outside of the main ATC building, a separate building just across Molito (the one with the Sykes logo at the top).

The place is a bit dark inside, my sister said that compared to the other stores in that area, this one was not well lighted. Maybe they wanted that kind of ambience, so I cannot argue. But the interior is very nice.

La Maripili is actually a cafe serving sandwiches and other food items aside from the Churros. We ordered the churros for takeout. The price is affordable as well if you would only buy the 6pcs plain churros (Php 60). However, if you'd like the Hot Chocolate sauce, it will cost you another (Php 110).

The churros were not big compared to La Lola Churreria but the churros itself is very crispy in the outside and soft in the inside. The same texture and consistency was there even if we ate it after about 15-20minutes since we bought it. The hot chocolate was thick and it was a very generous amount of dipping sauce. I think it would be maximized well if you ordered the 12pcs. The chocolate was not too sweet and goes well with the churros

Would try it here next time not only for the churros but also for the other food items.

Had high expectations for this one since news was everywhere and the reatau was lovely too but sadly, I was let down by overcooked dough (look at that color) & runny choco dip. We tried the dulce de leche too and it was ok,. The chocolate dip tasted good but nowhere near la lola, esp the consistency. I had this when it was fairly new and I'm still willing to give another try...

Went back to La Maripili on a weekend and made sure that we were there earlier than last time. I wanted to see if time is a factor when it comes to their service and food quality. 5PM and the place wasn't packed but there were a lot of people.

I ordered right away and got their Classic Churros with Chocolate Dip, Churros with Sweet Filling and Churros with Savory Toppings.

I was anxious to see if they have changed their runny chocolate dip into a thick one as described by Chili G. I got 6 pieces Classic Churros plus chocolate dip. Oh wow! The dip was thick indeed! It was super thick, actually, more like chocolate spread in consistency. It still had that dark chocolate taste, not super sweet and some sour notes. I loved it this time! 4oz of this dip was too much for 6 pieces so I needed to get 6 pieces more 128516 The kids loved this combo too!

I got three flavors from their Churros with Sweet Filling selection - Dulce de Leche, Catalan Cream and Coconut Cream. I was eyeing on the one with Chocolate and Chili Mousse too but it wasn't available. Churro was about 4 inches and expensive at 60Php EACH!

> Dulce de Leche was good but wasn't as thick as I wanted it to be. I'd still go for La Lola's Dulce de Leche Xuxos.

> Coconut cream was super good but maybe because I like coconut milk or gata to begin with.

> Catalan Cream was described by one of their staff as bavarian like so I got it BUT it was not!!! It was more like buttery and sweet - like a butterball candy of sort. So, I searched Google and found out that it should be more like Creme Brulee. Urgh!

We also tried the Chorizo with Honey and Jamon Serrano. Hubby and I LOVED the Chorizo with honey! Perfect combination of sweet and savory. Loved how the sweetness of the honey went so well the tasty and salty chorizo slices! So good we went for seconds 128563

The Jamon Serrano was topped with cherry tomato slices. This was just okay. The ham itself was good though overall, nothing wow.

Service was surprisingly top notch during this visit. They were all smiles, friendly and really helpful. Maybe it was a bad day when we visited last time? Or was it because they were already tired, wanting to go home since we went an hour before closing? Anyhow, we had a great time during our second visit.

Dessert stop before going home, we went here after coming from Tagaytay. Arrived at about 9PM and there were just a couple of other occupied tables. So madilim talaga sya 128540 I thought there was just a lighting issue the last time we were there but apparently ganun talaga yung set up 128513 maybe because it's super bright during the day?
Any ways we got 18pcs to share (among 5 people) and 2 chocolate dips. The consistency wasn't as thick as our last visit but still not very runny (which is good).
Service was also okay, our server even gamely took pics of us and refilled our mini water carafes as soon as she sees they are almost empty.
So happy that we have this delish place so near 128522

La Maripili!

I would love to love my visit here, really. The place was sleek and clean with mainly whites here and there. Love the innovation with small wooden crate boxes used as wall installations to add some touch to the place. I loved the warm lighting, the use of tiles, the drop lamps and the touches of greens. The place could pass for a high end restaurant, more than being a Churreria. But then again the name of the game is self-service. Order at the counter, pay and wait.

I got their Classic Churros, Large, for 180Php. Added two chocolate dips for 110php each! Whow! Expensive dip! For a 4oz dip at that price, I thought that it should be worth the price tag!

Learned that they use Sunflower oil to fry their Churros. The staff said that olive oil burns faster so they need to change the oil every 2 days if that's the case that's why they use Sunflower Oil instead. Made me wonder how long before they change the oil then 128563128563128563128563128563

Anyhow, Sunflower Oil is a bit neutral in taste so there wasn't any trace of it from the Churros, unlike olive oil, and the Churros weren't as oily. Crunchy outside, soft and warm inside, perfect! The chocolate dip was ---- errr ---- very runny! It wasn't diluted with milk coz it had this bitter and sour taste which was good. At first it was too sour for me but later on I got used to it. It wasn't super sweet though. But then again it was super runny! I wish it was more thick to properly coat the churros.

Giving this another try coz they might have changed the dip to a thicker one as mentioned by Chili G in her new post. Made this visit weeks ago so maybe, just maybe, they've changes it.

PS.

Staff needs more customer service training coz we went there late and they close at 11PM. Some restaurants would politely ask customers for their last orders and mention that they will be closing in a few. We didn't notice the time because we were chit/chatting. The staff started cleaning then maybe they noticed that customers were not moving so they approached each table saying that they're already closed and have already extended 10mins and that they still need to clean like - "Sir 11PM kasi closing namin nag extend na nga kami ng 10mins maglilinis pa kasi kami" That was okay but you know for a place like this sometimes you're expecting something more. Anyway, this could just be me. Baka pagod na lang tlga sila LOL

Finally got to try this place! After our dinner at 8 cuts, walked around (wow malling!) and did some errands too. Walked all the way to the new wing which isn't that bad, maliit Lang talaga ATC. Sometimes I even walk from molito to fully
Booked! Okay onto the review 128513
We found the place easily enough since there are just a few restos open in that area. Got the regular churros (12 pcs) and their chocolate dip which is an additional 110.
Interiors were nice and tasteful, they were into the upcycling thing I think. Service was also good as the sever readily refilled our mini carafe of water consistently.
Food arrived quickly and we were pleasantly surprised! The churros weren't heady or oily. And the chocolate dip is just perfect! Super thick (as in), it's really worth it. I don't think you can drink it 128517 this is compared to la Lola's dip which has ruined a couple of shirts of mine because it was too watery.
We actually finished the order! Less one star cos Mejo madilim doon sa place? I don't know if there were repairs being made but it was a bit dark, weird Lang 128513 nevertheless, the churros were good. Will try to come back during the day hehe.

Great place plus great food, definitely a must visit! Located at the heart of Alabang Town Center, you'll surely be captivated with the place. Ain't just talking about how great it was furnished, but their good for the pocket but great tasting churros and french toasts. The french toast that we tried wasn't the usual, it tasted like pizza, but still, it was great. The hot chocolate that accompanied our churros was our locally made tableas. Didn't expect it to be a great combination. Totally worth the long drive from QC!

Today's dose of sweetness came from La Maripili. This churreria offers not only their infamous churros but they do offer sandwiches and toast as well.

I've been here several times since I usually drive around the area everyday going to work. I must say that the place looks very elegant with its wooden floor and rustic interiors.

I've tried their classic churros with the chocolate dip. Its crunchy yet chewy in the inside but not a fan of their chocolate dip. Tastes just your regular Ricoa melted in hot water.

But their dark chocolate covered churros is definitely a must try. It looks big in the picture but its pretty small. It was served to us chilled and this somehow reminds me of "Royce Potato chips" covered in chocolate.

I will definitely order this again and try their sandwiches next time.

Having tried the more popular stores that offers Churros, La Maripili is the one that stands out for me.

I love 128154128536

✔that they whips up freshly baked churros for you in the shortest possible time

✔the crunchy on the outside but fluffy on the inside texture of their Churros

✔that their Churros are warm and fresh from the oven, and its elegant pairing with Hot Chocolate will certainly make your day

✔that the owner sources out ingredients from local suppliers

✔that their Churros are adorned with countless layers of sugar to appease your sweet tooth

✔that they have savory Churros

✔that they have other choices for those non-Churros lovers, they have toasts, sandwiches and coffee

✔the ambiance

Taste of Churros was as expected. Was hoping to try jamon serrano but it was out of stock, ugh... My husband liked their cortado coffee as well. Mom ordered the catalan creme twice so it must be good. Looks too sweet for me. My cousin devoured the chorizo with honey but wasn't able to ask her how it was.

Some places are just instagram worthy. And that is this place. I am disappointed. I've been craving for a good quality churros for two weeks now so when I met with my friends today, I decided to drop by at this place. The place is pretty. You'll like the lighting and minimalist decors. But the churros which is what they're selling is not okay. Small churros like that of Dulcinea size. 6 pieces which is small is Php 60 only coated with sugar no cinnamon sugar. It's also a little dry. And worst, hot chocolate is Php 110 that is sold separately. That's too expensive don't you think? Their white chocolate churros is good. Coated and filled with white chocolate for that small size. It's cold and no longer crispy. Prices are misleading too. At the board it says Php 50 but their receipt would say Php 60. So be careful with that. Overall, I am not happy with their churros. Such a disappointment!

Wow this place looks like a fine dining place for a churros shop. I love the clean white theme with ambient lighting inside. The place looks really sosyal.

For me their churros are better than the one I tried from La Granny. The classic churros here got that perfect crisp on the outside and perfect softness inside. Even without the hotchoco dip its still good. For the coated variant, we tried the dark choco churros. It was a little too small but what I like with their coated churros is that the dark choco coating didn't affect the texture of the churros. The bitterness of the dark choco was all good.

Overall I love the place. Only wish is that as a coffee kind of place they should have some power outlet available or wifi. Sorry its now a necessity for such place hahaha..128522
