Let’s go back more than 10 years ago when Krispy Kreme first launched in Thailand. The hype for this American-made treat was so huge that people patiently endured queuing up for hours just for a bite. For months, the shop on the ground floor of Siam Paragon was so frequented that it stole the thunder of every restaurant and cafe within its perimeter.
It looks like we haven’t gotten over our obsession for this bun with a hole (or lack thereof). Bangkokians are still obsessed with donuts, but the craze has expanded to other purveyors apart from Krispy Kreme. In the last few years, the city has seen more pastry shops springing up and churning out so-called craft donuts in many mouthwatering flavors.
Here are seven shops that make some of the best donuts in the city. Go on and treat yourself to a sugar high after a long and exhausting day.
