Doh - best doughnut shops in dubai

No, not Homer Simpson’s catchphrase… Last Exit has multiple different food truck experiences but this one has turned into an instagrammable and delectable sensation with mind-blowing flavours. Everybody loves food that comes in mini bite sizes that pack a punch in taste, and this is exactly what Doh serves up. You can also get coffees donned with mini doughnuts and it is quite frankly, just a-dough-able and delicious.

Donuts Time

Best doughnut shops in dubai - Donuts time

Local and lovely would be the best way to describe this doughnut shop. Locations scattered across the UAE, Donuts Time has taken the humble doughnut and reinvented it with its popular flavour profiles. Donuts Time has taken some of our favourites and combined them with doughnuts to make for an interesting concoction. Try the labneh and zaatar as well as cheesy chips Oman. The classics are still available but some of their premium options are worth a try.

Like any good superhero, they are here to save the day… or well… save you from becoming a hangry monster halfway through the day. The most important thing to note is that the doughnuts are healthy. It is baked from a sourdough starter, which promotes gut health and could basically be added to your five a day.

Vegan readers, don’t be jelly… this one’s for you. Il Donaccino has an entire menu section dedicated to vegan doughnuts. Their vegan-friendly options include mango glazed, matcha, and coconut glaze along with a selection of vegan chocolate options, too. Our other readers will be more interested in their savoury doughnuts. Yep, a savoury doughnut – think doughnuts coated in cheese, chilli flakes and a variety of crisps such as Chips Oman, nachos and Pofaki crisps. It may sound weird but doughn’t knock it till you try it.
