Homegrown F&B chain Creamier is best known for its ice cream and waffles, but it has now launched a new range of house-made doughnuts at its outlets islandwide. Called Donuts by Creamier, the range offers six sweet and savoury flavours.
8days.sg checks out the the treats, and tells you which ones are good to order.
According to Creamier’s co-founder Khoh Wan Chin, the brand is offering doughnuts as they are “comfort food” like ice cream. There are also plans to launch an all-day brunch concept later this month with savoury dishes at Creamier’s East Coast Road cafe.
We are tickled by its name (remember “mee siam mai hum?”), and this hum-less “laksa” doughnut comes with a chunky chicken filling that reminds us more of chicken curry than laksa. But it’s pretty fun to gnaw through the fluffy, slightly crispy fried doughnut to get to the lemak-enough filling (which we could do with more of).
Like the Cinnamon Sugar doughnut, this is just as addictive. The same ring doughnut is dipped in a simple sugar glaze, so it makes for a sweeter-than-usual treat, but still satisfying and charmingly nostalgic.
We find this the prettiest doughnut out of the six flavours. The choc-glazed ring is crowned with torched marshmallow fluff. It’s not as rustic as a classic s’more (which has chocolate and marshmallow sandwiched between graham crackers and toasted), though it makes for a nice cheat day dessert with the airy, whipped cream-like marshmallow.
