Agua Na Boca at West Norwood Feast

Agua Na Boca at West Norwood Feast

Every Sunday April-December a craft-vintage-food market takes place in West Norwood. We went primarily so I could visit the jewellery stall of Crystal and Stone who make beautiful earrings, rings and necklaces. Before we hit the craft area of the market however, we stopped in the food section to get some Indian naan wraps for our savoury course (I find doughnuts even better when preceded by something not so sweet) and then to Agua Na Boca for some churros. My Spanish is pretty basic but I think this means ‘mouth-watering’.

And they were. They was an impressive queue waiting for them which is always a positive sign. The maker, Andre Gailey Coutinho, was offering them in two flavours: salted caramel and a chocolate filling called ‘brigadeiro’ – and he piped the flavours inside with a rather nifty machine, which made them easier to eat on the hoof. My husband and I had one each, ‘half-and-half’ – Sam preferred the sweetness of the caramel, while I liked the contrast of the slightly bitter chocolate with the crunchy sugar on the outside. I ate mine rather too swiftly – they were very hot and I could have given you a more detailed review if I’d taken my time!

I’ve just looked up the website and they do private parties. This is interesting news – we’re planning a wedding anniversary party in a few years time, and churros would be a great addition…
