Glonuts (glow-in-the-dark donuts) are the latest donut trend. Created by Black Star Pastry in Australia, the neon pastries’ icing is actually a yuzu glaze which gets its glow from vitamin B.
We don’t have glonuts yet but we’re surely broadening our donut options with these unique sweet and savoury dough treats.

Sweet potato and red bean donuts @ Pullman Bakery
Famous for its Hokkaido curry buns, Pullman Bakery also serves Japanese-style donuts too. From cream, sweet potato or red bean donuts to the more traditional sugar or choconut (chocolate and nut) ring donuts, their donuts are light and not overly greasy.
Yummy red bean donut ($1.30) from a small Japanese bakery located at Millenia Walk to start the morning. It is different from the local red bean bun as it is filled with sweet azuki bean then deep-fried for the crispy exterior and coated with fine sugar. For those who love sweets, will also love this!
