The only time I eat donuts are when they land in my lap like gifts from goodies heaven. One morning I woke up and there was a box of donuts waiting for me. What else can I do but try them? Life is sweet.
Gavino’s Japanese Donuts is owned by couple Andrew and Michelle Que. I know Andrew’s family and they used to be in the donut business. This isn’t Andrew’s first donut business but it’s definitely his best.
These are not your usual cake or yeast donuts. Instead these are mochi donuts which means they are chewy and I love chewy mochi. When I opened the box I zoomed in on the most chocolatey of them all.
Good grief there was so much chocolate in this little ball of mochi donut I actually moaned in happiness. Even my dog Chino knew I was holding something good which he will never get to try since chocolate is toxic for dogs. I was surprised at the good quality of chocolate used. Trust me if inferior chocolate was used I would be ranting about it. It tasted even better than than Little Mermaid’s chocolate sticky donut.
My next favorite was the peanut butter and jelly mochi ball and the chocolate almond donut. The cheese ensaymada was a hoot to eat too! It’s best to eat these donuts in the same day although I kept most of it in the refrigerator they still tasted ok after reheating in the toaster.
When I was in SM Megamall I checked out their other flavors.
Green tea cheesecake you’re on my list.
Naturally I bought a peanut butter ball. What I like about their peanut butter donut is the real peanut butter in the filling. It’s not some peanut butter diluted with extenders but thick imported peanut butter.
Do try Gavino’s Japanese donuts and let me know if you like chewy mochi donuts or you’ll stick to the regular yeast donut?
