Looks like donuts are getting some fanfare in Singapore of late, with the opening of City Donut at Telok Ayer Arts Club.
Just a stone’s throw away from Common Man Stan, LUNA Patisserie and NOA Singapore, this newest kid on the stretch seems to be getting attention as their donuts are often sold out.
Unlike most donuts-specialty kiosks in Singapore, City Donut has a seating capacity of 40 pax and retain some of the layouts from the previous Telok Ayers Arts Club (similar to an art gallery).
The menu focuses only on donuts, with local flavours ranging from Original ($1.30), Coffee ($1.80), Pandan Kaya ($2.20), Pulut Hitam ($2.20), Milo Dinosaur ($2.20), Wholemeal Yogurt ($2.20), Pandan Ondeh Ondeh ($2.80), Orh Nee ($2.50) to Citrus Yuzu ($2.50).
As some flavours are more popular than the others, not all flavours are available at my time of visit.
Their bestseller is the Pandan Ondeh Ondeh Donut ($2.80) that is not in the usual shape of a ring donut.
Instead, palm sugar or gula melaka is mixed with grated coconut to fill up the core of the Pandan Ondeh Ondeh Donut before sprinkling more desiccated coconut on the surface.
The green pandan infused bun is soft, fluffy and fragrant even though I personally felt that the Pandan Ondeh Onden Donut has a texture of a bun instead of a donut
Each donut is about the size of a palm and my favourite is the Orh Nee Donut ($2.50), generously piped with smooth and fragrant yam paste.
The yam paste is not as sweet, and complements with the soft and fluffiness of the donut bun.
For those who prefer a light and refreshing treat, the Citrus Yuzu donut ($2.50) comes with a sugar coating to balance with the sour punch from the citrus fruit.
The sweet and citrusy treat has lemon infused in it, which explained a stronger citrus taste.
So instead of a drink, our local Milo Dinosaur now comes in the form of a donut, piped with milo cream and dusted with more milo powder.
Apart from the fillings being infused with different flavours, the various flavours are also incorporated within the donut buns to make it more flavourful.
2 McCallum Street, Singapore 069043
