Donut Factory, Singapore
When this place first opened at Raffles City Shopping Centre (250 North Bridge Road #B1-61), the line was so ridiculously long that I immediately walked away. Now - almost two years later - the hype finally died down such that we were able to get a doughnut without waiting. Of course, the big burning question on my mind was whether this was so good that it was worth waiting hours for. We grabbed a few quick ones, ranging from a simple glazed donut to a peculiar spicy cheese one, to find out.
The first thing that struck me upon biting into one was that it was very similar to local bread, which is more soft and airy than its Western counterpart. That wasn't necessarily a bad thing as its lightness carried less guilt with it, but I guess I'm more accustomed to heavier doughnuts. I suppose that I could understand why people were waiting hours for this stuff before, especially in the absence of Krispy Kreme. But I'll probably stick to doughnuts from back home.
