K.L, Malaysia: Krispy Kreme

22 November 2010

The donut craze has long gone and passed us, but the bigger chains are still trying to hang on here in Singapore and Malaysia. Krispy Kreme has yet to arrive in Singapore though (I doubt it even would in the near future), so the least we could do was try these much-raved about donuts during our little holiday in Kuala Lumpur.

It's no rocket science making these fried, sugar-coated treats, but you have to wonder how they could have started such a frenzy (long, long lines mind you) when places like Donut Factory and J.Co came up. Me, I like the chocolate or nutty ones. And oh, I quite fancy those with a berry filling in the middle too :D

Friends who have been to the States talk about Krispy Kreme as if it's the next best thing to say, Belgian dark chocolates or pizza from Naples. But the ones we got here weren't all too impressive or mind-blowing, and were pretty much similar to the rest of its counterparts.

The jam-filled ones were the best of the lot. Sugar-rush guaranteed.

I heard Krispy Kreme is coming to Singapore. But it's the Malaysian franchise, so expect the same.

I havent't try the Malaysian one but Krispy Kreme Sydney tasted far better than their HK counterpart. No wonder the HK franchise closed down :P

So the western Krispy Kremes should be the better ones eh? Pity its the same Malaysian franchise coming in (but there's already Dunkin Donuts man, why do we need soooo many??)!

next time you are in KL, try Krispy Kreme's Chocolate Iced Kreme Filled and especially their original glazed (the best!!). If there's any reason why i am in KL, it's mainly because of these two items!!

Okay, maybe also because of the oyster omelette from jalan alor and the roasted delights from overseas restaurant. Hahaha.

Angeline: Not a donut fan eh?

Cavin: Chocolate iced kreme filled seems too good to pass up, if only I had seen it! Jalan Alor - the bbq chicken wings especially - didn't impress us that much, but admittedly we didn't have enough time to try out the rest. Should get recommendations from you next time! :D
