Of donuts and uh, Heaven.
So that other I day when I was in KL, Hikari, a good friend of mine along with the KL youth group buddies Tony and Jia Rong, called me and my sis out to hang around at Subang Jaya.
After breakfast which was some really good assorted roti canai at Mamak Bistro in SS14. Tony and Jia Rong got their PMR results and we headed for the new wing of Sunway Pyramid for lunch. Five of us was like, looking for a place to eat when we passed by a J.Co Donuts and Coffee outlet.
Now I’ve heard, and read all about these apparently extremely heavenly donuts from this very famous chain of bakery from Indonesia. They have bloody long queues all day at their Pavillion KL outlet, so I’ve heard. But this particular outlet in Sunway Pyramid was well, blessed with a queue with a grand total of 5 people. =\
So Tony was like, hey! Since there’s no crowd, why don’t we get some of those donuts! So we joined the relatively small queue and settled for a box of a half a dozen donuts. But then again it was only around 11am at the time which would probably explain the lack of a long queue. Nonetheless, we didn’t have to wait 30 minutes!
The presentation of the donuts in glass were particularly interesting to look at. I mean, even an Ah beng who would just walk past a J.Co outlet without second-guessing would be attracted to all that edible rings on display. Heck, he might even walk in thinking it’s a jewellery shop and get one of those colourful rings for his proposal to Ah Lian. =D
Bwahaha. xD Okay ah beng jokes aside, Tony was kind enough to treat me and my sis to a whole 1/2 dozen box of donuts of our own choice. Seriously, there were all sorts of donuts in all shapes and sizes, flavours and colours. Even to pick six out of those selections is no easy task because each and every flavour looks so equally tempting! But under the pressure of a growing queue behind us, we randomly picked out 6 lovely rings.
So there you go, 11 bucks worth of a box. =D
And inside, 6 heavenly rings. Since we picked out the flavours in a rush, we couldn’t recall it’s exact name.
All four of us, my two lil cousins, my sis and I gathered around the dining table, eyes all wide and fixated on that very box. I mercilessly barred anyone from touching even the box while I went on snapping close-ups of those very well-presented donuts.
You have one mango flavoured ring which is the golden one with white cream. Tiramisu would be the one with white cream and spotted brown. The one further in with dark cream toppings is blackberry flavoured.
Tiramisu in close range. Try not the lick your screen. =P
You have the black Oreo flavoured one here.
And another one topped with creamy New Zealand cheese. The one further in was one of my favourites, rich peanut butter on the inside, white chocolate topped on the outside.
I have to say, the donuts were bloody damn sweet. But it’s not that bland sweetness you taste in those typical 30 cents a piece donuts covered in a thick layer of icing sugar sweetness. Probably the only way I can describe it is that it’s as sweet as J.Co donuts. XD
Honestly, it wasn’t really that earth-shattering when I took that first bite. Neither did I remember growing wings flying to heaven and back. But what I really have to praise of these donuts is that of the richness of it’s taste. And when I say rich, I mean bloody rich. xD
The only downside is. I didn’t get to eat those donuts as a whole! All I got was like, a fraction of each flavour. Grr. I WANT MORE. =P
