Local bakery Poison offers sweet-savory sourdough doughnuts with a Kikk – made with Kikkoman soy sauce!

Looking to enjoy homemade doughnuts with an unconventional twist? Local bakery Poison Doughnuts’ signature sourdough doughnuts now come with a Kikk – a Kikkoman twist, that is.

Poison’s new soy sauce-based doughnuts may sound peculiar at first, but trust in Poison – the Makati bakeshop has expertly crafted three new doughnut flavors that are the right balance of sweet and savory flavors, using the salty Japanese condiment and Poison’s addictively soft, chewy, and thick sourdough base.

Poison’s Kikko Man doughnut flavor features their sourdough doughnut generously stuffed with a thick, creamy soy sauce-based buttercream custard inside, lightly coated with a sweet soy sauce glaze. Think of it like a bavarian-filled doughnut, with a slightly salty kick.

The Kikkonana flavor is their sourdough donut filled with a heaping amount of homemade chunky banana pudding that’s sweet and works perfectly as a contrast to the savory soy-miso-glazed dough. It is dusted with kinako (roasted soybean powder) for a nutty addition and half-topped with crushed nuts for some crunch.

For the more adventurous palates, Poison’s Kikko Shoyu Bonito doughnut is a powerhouse of unique flavors you wouldn’t think would work, but do. There’s a white chocolate glaze with a hint of wasabi, a savory-sweet soy sauce frosting, and salty bonito flakes on top.

Each doughnut costs P105.

Customers can get Poison’s Kikkoman doughnuts for dine-in, take-out, and delivery from their branch at Karrivin Plaza, 2316, Chino Roces Avenue, Makati City. They’re open from 10 am to 8 pm on Mondays to Sundays, with a closing time of 9 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

Delivery orders can be placed via Poison’s website, GrabFood, foodpanda, or Pickaroo. –
