Spanish French Toast

$10.00 · 5 Reviews

Also known as torrijas in Spanish, it was served with a light and sweet vanilla ice cream. Unlike French toast, torrijas are filled with custard before its deep fried. To finish off, it’s sprinkled with a mix of sugar and cinnamon. Traditionally, stale bread is soaked in sweetened milk. I’m not sure if they do this here. It was not too heavy on the palette and the custard wasn’t exceptionally sweet or rich.

Far from your typical French Toast, FOC does theirs with a Spanish flair.
The fat puffy oblongs are pumped full of custard and fried to a gorgeous golden-brown. They are then coated in fine sugar and cinnamon powder before being served with housemade vanilla bean ice-cream.
This is the kind of dessert that makes you think “oh, that’s too much” when you read about it in the menu but the moment you take a bite of it, something magical happens and in a matter of moments, you’ll find yourself staring at an empty plate.


Spanish french toast ($10)-like a cinnamon sugar coated donut filled with custard 4/5

Cinnamon and sugar dusted, fantastically fluffy pillows of Torrija(or Spanish French Toast), with an indulgently custard-like core, served with homemade vanilla ice cream. Eat at your own peril, because you'll be wanting more.

Taste: 4/5

Piping hot and sparkling with sugar crystals, the pair of fat, cinnamon-dusted pillows are puffed up with a luscious custard filling and served with housemade vanilla ice-cream. So don't be fooled by the rather nondescript name of Spanish "French Toast" this goes by, or you'll miss out on a really fabulous dessert.
