Sweet temp­ta­tion

India Today - - SIMPLY KOLKATA - By Tithi Sarkar

If you like sweet golden rings with creamy frost­ing and glaze served de­li­ciously warm, then The Donut Baker is the place to head to. The in­ter­na­tional dough­nut chain ar­rived in Kolkata in May this year and has been an in­stant hit ever since, with over 26 va­ri­eties of dough­nuts on of­fer here. The dé­cor is bright, with cheery orange hues dom­i­nat­ing the 50- seater res­tau­rant on Park Street. Apart from ring dough­nuts like plain honey- dipped ones with a choice of frost­ings like choco­late fudge, straw­berry, maple, pista and choco­late swirl, there are also tart dough­nuts avail­able. Among their best­sellers is the Choco­late Bavar­ian dough­nut which has a lus­cious layer of choco­late spread on top. Honey- dipped twists and bow- ties in quirky shapes make for in­ter­est­ing de­vi­a­tions from the reg­u­lar shaped dough­nuts. Plump and soft, all of the dough­nuts have a neat com­bi­na­tion of flavour and tex­ture. The ic­ing cracks eas­ily and the fill­ings, al­though creamy, are on the thin­ner side. The only down­side at this dough­nut diner is the cramped two- seater tables. Also, find­ing your way to the up­per level can be a chal­lenge since you will have to nav­i­gate through a nar­row alley to reach the steps lo­cated be­side the or­der counter. Apart from this, it is a fun dough­nut eat­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with ef­fi­cient ser­vice and a col­lec­tion of sand­wiches and crois­sants also on of­fer. Price Rs 35 to Rs 40 per dough­nut, ex­clu­sive of taxes Where 57 Park Street, Shop T3, 14 Park Man­sion, Op­po­site Mo­cambo Res­tau­rant Tel 40031347
