Yet Another Big Apple Post.
Waaiit! Before you head for that ‘x’ button on your top right, hear me out first! Yes, Big Apple Donuts & Coffee has finally landed in Kuching. Yes, this is (yet another) post about Big Apple donuts (in Kuching). Yes, this post is gonna be laden with pictures of donuts and people buying donuts. And yes, I’m gonna use all superlatives that ever existed to describe how a Big Apple donut taste like.
And no, there’s nothing uncommon about this post. Hehehe.
Ever since my first encounter with J.Co donuts last year, I’ve been craving for those heavenly rings for like ever. I wanted them so bad, I got myself another box of donuts, but this time, in Big Apple’s when I went to KK in February.
Now, Big Apple has finally set foot here in Kuching! And better still, it’s just right across the road from campus. =P Yay! No more squashed donuts in travel bags all the way from KL or KK! What would you call this? Donuts finally within reach! xD
So it was after lectures this afternoon when my buddies and I decided to try out Big Apples since Lao pan has been talking about wanting to go over for some Big Apples for the past week. The queue was okay so we decided to share two half-dozen boxes.
Ah Wu posing with a catalog, showing how small the donuts are when they’re actually bigger in real life.
What I always liked about the two donut chains is their outlet’s deco. There’s always an abundance of glass and how every process of the donut making is easily visible to customers.
..like this section showing visitors how they apply the donut toppings. You actually don’t feel the wait despite the rather long queue when you get to look at how your favourite donuts are prepared. =D
Ah Soon and me lined up while the others went for a stroll around the mall. Soon, it was our turn and we picked away while salivating at those very, very tempting donuts.
My box of donuts in queue at the cashier.
We then drove back to Swinburne in Kee Seng’s Altis when we realised, we had no proper place to eat those donuts. In all its oddity, we ended up having a donut feast on the 1st floor of the car park LOL.
So there we were, six of us, standing outside the Altis savouring every bite, with Kee Seng’s two boot woofers blasting to the max. It was sure as hell the most random way I’ve ever eaten a donut. xD
Of the six in a box, I ate one in the car park and Ah Siat took another one. Leaving four which I took home for my family.
The donuts were damn nice all right. Thing is, we Kuchingnites had grown up eating those 20 cents apiece sugar-coated donuts available at roadside kueh stalls. Then suddenly comes this Big Apple store that doesn’t sell apples but instead sells donuts at ten times the price we’re normally used to pay.
And if you’d ask me, even at 2 bucks a piece, they’re still freakin worth it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — it’s worth every single penny man. But still, 2 bucks a piece for something that size isn’t all that cheap. Like Ah siat said, Big Apples are easily the most expensive donuts he had ever spent on.
That said, having spent on a half-dozen box of Big Apples, I’m officially broke for the rest of the week. =(
