A “donut” is a bread made by putting sugar, eggs, milk, etc. in flour and forming a round or ring shape and deep-frying it in oil. The savory smell of freshly popped donuts is captivating enough to catch your passing steps. If you sprinkle sugar on a hot doughnut and eat it, the sweetness makes you smile. Recently, various types of donuts have appeared, such as filling the doughnuts with cream overflowing and toppings such as chocolate and cookies, etc., and the range of choices is expanding. Here are 5 of the best doughnut restaurants that fill your mouth with sweet flavors.

“Tombs Day” evokes an American sensibility with blue doors, white brick facades, wide windows, and vintage-colored signs. The signature menu, “Cream Brulee,” is a doughnut filled with custard cream and coated with hard sugar, making it fun to eat it yourself. The crunchy sugar coating and the contrasting texture of soft bread and cream blend pleasantly.

Instead of fermented butter and sugar from France, “Butter Book” makes donuts using sweets that are less absorbed by the body. All menus are produced and sold on the same day. The signature menu “Doughnut (vanilla)” filled the fluffy deep-fried doughnuts with vanilla bean cream. When you blow on the fluffy bread, the rich vanilla cream envelops your mouth and gives it a rich sweetness.

“Shisoppe” makes homemade pretzels using the tang method made by adding water boiled at 100℃ and potatoes. Because of its high moisture content, pretzels are characterized by their moist and chewy texture. The signature menu, “Unicorn Twist,” satisfies the eyes and mouth by applying a thin layer of iridescent sugar syrup to pretzel donuts. The moment you chew on the pretzel, the popping candy pops and adds a fun texture.

“Pow” makes donuts by instantly frying glutinous rice dough that has been aged and fermented. The signature menu is “Pau Donuts,” which has an attractive chewy texture and light flavor. After putting it full of sugar, it is casually placed in a paper cup to recreate the feel of an old donut. “Cheddarella,” which is deep-fried with plenty of mozzarella and cheddar cheese in a thin dough, is also popular.

▲Opening hours: 11:00 — 19:30 every day, closed on Sundays

â–²Price: Pau Donnas 1,000 won, Cheddarella 1,500 won

â–²Testimonial (Alarmmon Shikigami 1313): There are more and more doughnut restaurants these days, but sometimes I think of the glutinous rice doughnuts I often ate in the past. The basic paw donuts were chewy and tasty, and the cheddarella was a cheese bomb!

“Ovecht” makes vegan donuts using only plant-based ingredients. We present easy-to-approach desserts to break the prejudice that “vegans have no taste.” The signature menu, “Tiramisu Glazed,” finished by soaking donuts with glaze made from espresso shots and sprinkling half of the cocoa powder. The subtle aroma of coffee blends harmoniously with the sweetness of cocoa.
