Sprinkles. Chocolate or Strawberry icing. That's what I think of when I hear the word donut. You can bet that I was a little shocked (and intrigued, too) when I saw the new Mister Donuts line of curry donuts. I naturally had to head to my local store - for research purposes - and try one out.
There are several different types featured on their menu right now, including Keema Curry, Green Curry and one they have called Euro Curry.
Not going to lie - my expectations were pretty low here. I guess in my head all I could think was that a sweet donut with curry inside sounded terrible.
I was actually rather pleasantly surprised, though! The taste was more in line with a curry pan than it was with what you'd expect from a sweet donut, so it wasn't nearly as weird as I would have thought. At less than 200 yen I would get one again if I was in the mood for something savory to eat and there was a Mister Donuts nearby.
Have you tried any of the Mister Donuts curry donuts range? What did you think of their offerings?
After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
カレードーナツ are not as common as カレーパン, but I see it in bakeries and the bread section in lots of supermarkets. What sounds interesting about the Mister Donuts versions is the different kinds of curry. (Curry donuts I've seen are the same as curry bread - Japanese curry.) Sounds good to me.
@helloalissa definitely better than I expected but it was my first curry donut experience...i had weird expectations! i just saw your review about the saga immigration office by the way, and i am infinitely jealous. tachikawa here in tokyo seems to be a minimum of a two hour wait even when you get there before they open (learned the hard way that they start giving out tickets before their 9am opening time)...
