Tres Leches & Churros That Leave You Asking For More
It’s a no-brainer that churros would certainly dominate the dessert menu at a Mexican restaurant. Similarly, at Sanchez, you’d find diners, especially families with children bonding over a plate of churros. The beautifully presented Churro Hearts would invite you to stop everything and get involved in the activity of dipping the churros in hot chocolate sauce and savouring every bite. The churros are fluffy and crispy. We’d even go ahead and say it’s a perfect end to the meal, but the Tres Leches at Sanchez surprisingly takes the centre stage. Even upstages the churros.
Tres Leches, a milk cake, translates to “three milks”. The dense, moist cake is prepared in the traditional Mexican style where it’s soaked in a blend of condensed milk, evaporated milk and cream for long hours. Perfected over years, Tres Leches at Sanchez is pure excellence, with a soothing presentation, calming taste, velvety, silky, mouthfeel, this dessert is truly a must-try. We’d go ahead and tell you that you’re Mexican fare is incomplete without ending it with the Tres Leches. You can thank us later for this recommendation.
