RINGING IN THE DOUGHNUTS
Everybody loves a doughnut and if you want them in mini size and in different flavours then visit Mini Donut for some freshly baked treats.
Long gone are the days of having doughnuts for breakfast only; these deep-fried rings of dough are no longer associated with being a morning staple. It has become a global delicacy that works like a treat that we indulge in, all day, everyday. But what makes these fried ‘nuts a number one choice for many coffee lovers? Well, it works best with the coffee. Period. Giving you an aftertaste to remember. So where do you get your doughnut fix? I am going to introduce to you a place that will surely become your favourite dessert stop.
Last week on my way home I passed by an eye-catching exterior that looked like a moving van with colourful logo, and sports an orange and black palette. As I got closer, I realised that it’s a doughnuts place. I had to stop by and pick myself a couple of rings. The place had a ton of cars waiting for their treats. I managed to park my ride.
A friendly waiter started walking towards the car holding a menu. I quickly realised that this is an on-the-go kind of a place, where you place your order and hit the road. I rolled my windows down and had a quick chat with the waiter. I found out that Mini Donut is a new one-stop-shop for doughnuts that serve freshly-baked bite-size treats with a variety of toppings. And, it also offers other desserts such as mini pancakes, waffle baskets, crepes, and ice creams.
I took the menu and started exploring it. My eyes went straight to my all-time favourite flavour, lotus. I couldn’t contain my excitement as they had three toppings made of lotus. There is lotus cream, crushed lotus, and a mix of both. So that was atop my list to order. Chocolate, white and dark chocolate, Sneakers, Kinder, Nutella, caramel, Oreo, pistachio, cinnamon sugar, sugar dust, cheese, and the interesting options such as Omani chips and Cheetos are the toppings that can be found on their extensive menu. Each box comes with a set of 10 mini doughnuts, and you can order two toppings per box.
I went bananas for the ’nuts and ordered three boxes with six toppings. I took lotus with cream and crushed goodness, caramel and Sneakers, pistachio cream, cinnamon sugar, Oreo, and the Omani chips.
When I saw the packaging, the first thing that came to my mind was that the brand made an effort in creating the boxes and that was quite impressive. They made it in such a way that’s just perfect to devour the minis in the car, with sticks on the doughnuts so you won’t make a mess.
Now, the aroma of the treats was to die for, I technically had six scents in my car but the cinnamon sugar-glazed doughnut was the strongest, and I love some cinnamon. After the first bite, I was in doughnuts heaven; it tasted amazing, not too dry, not too spongy, and not too mushy either, just perfect. It had a fresh-outthe-pan taste, too.
For the toppings, they were all great (also depends on your favourite chocolate brand). Falling in love with the lotus was
a given. It was creamy and moist. I devoured all the five pieces like nobody’s business. Second favourite I’d say it was cinnamon sugar. Definitely a must-try. Other honourable mentions include Nutella; you can never go wrong with this classic nutty spread, and the savoury Omani chips. Blending a sweet taste with a mildly-spicy and crunchy taste - Yum. I shared the remaining rings with my colleagues, and as you’d guess, they loved it too.
I’m glad that there’s a new place in town where you can pick up a dessert on the go. This is, without a doubt, going to be as available-on-every-corner as karak and luqaimat joints, except this one is a bit fancier with tastes to remember. I hope they expand and open one in my area, it will be my breakfast, lunch, and dinner. —firstname.lastname@example.org
