Doughnuts. The heavenly, sinfully-good sweet fried treats that none of us get enough of. While they come in different shapes and sizes, we’re likely the most familiar with the American-style ring doughnuts that are often topped with various flavouring and icing. In other parts of the world, however, different forms of doughnuts lead in popularity. From Timmy’s Timbits in Canada, to plump, jam-filled ones in England, we can’t get enough of doughnuts no matter what they look like.
In Hong Kong however, you might have to look a little harder to find them. While there used to be seven Krispy Kreme stores in Hong Kong, the doughnut giant left the local market in 2008. Over the years, other doughnut fans have tried to make the sugary snack more readily available, with the most notable one being the opening and closing of organic doughnut shop, Munchies back in 2016.
Today, there’s still places in the city where you get a good doughnut fix. From pop-up shops, to made-to-order boxes, we're listing the best places to find doughnuts in Hong Kong.
1. Nuts Donut Shop
Artisanal doughnut store, Nuts Donut Shop opened its first brick-and-mortar store in Central's Elgin Street in August, bringing its delicious doughnuts to the city. Free from artificial flavours, colours and preservatives, they sell cake doughnuts as well as yeast doughnuts.
Try the chocolate ganache, strawberry white chocolate, or a simple glazed doughnut to get your morning started right. They also sell mini doughnut holes, for those who are looking for a little smaller.
