Korean pop culture is taking over the world, breathing its distinct fire across different worlds—pop music, makeup, our TV screens, you name it. That, of course, extends to the food realm, with the popularity of Korean dishes in these parts; We're talking everything from classic bibimbap and K-BBQ to more modern eats like Korean fried chicken. We're all for the Korean penchant for hearty fare that is bold, fiery, and sweet in the right amounts. Now imagine that Korean flavor magic, translated into doughnuts. You're not dreaming. These new treats from Poison Doughnuts pay homage to the vibrant tastes of Korean street food!
Check out the new Korean-style flavors from doughnut shop Poison:
Poison Doughnuts takes popular Korean street eats and reimagines them as doughnuts served on a stick. We know, we know—cue head scratch as Korean street food tends to be on the savory side—but they manage to infuse those savory elements into the fried pastries in ways that we've gotta say are so clever.
The Dakgangjeong (P180), for one, goes for a raspberry gochujang glaze and toppings of roasted sesame seeds and white chocolate inspired by the spicy-sweet chicken dish. The Jjajangmyeon (P180) takes after the black-bean noodle dish of the same name, translated as doughnuts with a custard filling, chunjang (black bean paste)-chocolate glaze, and nori flakes. Finally, the Patjuk Honey Butter (P180)-named after and inspired by the trendy Korean potato chip flavor and the traditional red-bean porridge-has their custard doughnuts glazed with honey butter, a red-bean sauce, and crushed potato chips. Why not complete the experience by digging into these pastries while watching your fave K-drama?
