For a blog called Donutsam, there’s an alarming lack of actual reviews on donuts (or doughnuts). That will all change with one recent evening excursion out to Oakleigh. We would be visiting The Oakleigh Doughnut Co to sample their highly Instagrammable confections. The store’s open […]
Even more sugar in New York. My handle really comes into its own in this town. The favourite donut I tried in NYC was from Peter Pan Donut & Pastry Shop. It’s not an overly fanciful store (compared to some of the competition), but it’s […]
Merry Christmas! I’m not big on the festive occasion but I’m always a sucker for any themed food. I popped along to Dum Dum Donutterie in Boxpark, Shoreditch on my very first stroll around my new neighbourhood. I picked up one of the Rudolph the reindeer-inspired items but unfortunately it wasn’t a great donut at all. It wasn’t fresh and the dry filling made me rank this lower than the Tesco supermarket variety (which is alright).
All you need to say is “chicken waffle” and I’m on your table ready to devour. That’s what happened at Restaurant Hyggestund, which happened to be my first meal in Copenhagen. It had a nice level of crowd as well as the mentioned chicken and […]
This year I’ve resolved to cut down on the refined sugars. Then it came to lunchtime and I thought to myself: bageriet. Life is for the living and you’ll be living it up when you encounter London’s finest Swedish bakery. Bread, biscuits, cakes, buns, pretzels […]
I’m a huge fan of the Trinity Bellwoods area, and if I was looking to reside in Toronto, I’d give that a good go. I had walked past Nadege Patisserie quite a few times over my week in Canada, there was one in a mall too. I’ve always possessed a major sweet tooth so I knew I had to try it at some point. It’s a good patisserie, but it wasn’t one of my favourites.
I had first encountered Crosstown Doughnuts on my lunch at Tombo, where I declared the matcha one fantastic-inventive-great! So I was just as excited checking out the full blown store in Soho. London’s a big place, which makes it easy to miss a spot, though […]
Star Cafe in Flat Bush remains a popular choice and my parents head there on occasion for the yum cha. Service and decor is entirely transactional but the food is fairly good and well priced, however I ended up with a dry mouth after my last […]
I could eat All Day Donuts, well, all day! I came for the Juanita Peaches/ All Day Donuts combo that my friend and fellow reviewer EJ had recommended, and went for the strawberry cheesecake donut ($5) that’s her fave. The donut totally lived up to the hype and I loved this little round circle of heaven. The cake was light and fluffy even at the late hour I had ordered it, with a topping that was a pleasant and rich icing and the cheesecake filling, creamy, unique and decadent. Whoop. It was a fantastic filler until my meal arrived and if I hadn’t had already expended my calorie intake for the afternoon I would have grabbed a full dozen more.
The music and vibe in the venue is also fantastic and I entertained myself thoroughly with the colouring in pages whilst dining. All Day Donuts is worthy enough to travel the perimeter of Melbourne for and I have to come back soon to try every single flavour they have. The Don Homer in concept and appearance also made me smile and I’d like to think the donuts here help me live up to my moniker.
