Dunkin Donuts promise more than just dessert
FOR their first store in South India, America’s all-day eatery Dunkin Donuts has chosen a location at the crossroads of Brigade and Residency Road. Head to the light-filled, newly fitted out spot, which has some lively local touches, including an impression of 1970s Bangalore by renowned local artist Paul Fernandes. Kick back on the comfy sofas, or fill the long central bench with friends as you take your pick from the extensive menu of food and beverages.
Eat your fill
Unlike branches of the chain in other countries worldwide, the store was launched with the name Dunkin Donuts & More, allowing the brand to adapt to the Indian market by offering a wide range of savoury food. Our pick goes to the Original Tough Guy range, which serves up your choice of chicken or vegetable burger in a sesame seed-topped bagel, with a generous serving of potent American mustard.
Death by dessert
Mellow coffee is one of the brand’s signature products, and interesting twists include their Dunkaccinos, a blend of coffee and hot chocolate that come with whipped cream and in flavours that include Jamaican Rum & Almonds, and Mocha Chip. Naturally, you can’t leave without sampling the donuts, which melt in the mouth and come in every imaginable flavour. Sink your teeth into the Toffee Nougat donut which is filled with caramel and sprinkled with butterscotch. Rs.55 upwards. At Mota Royal Arcade.
