San Diann and I headed straight to TWO SONS COFFEE from Avenue 41 as we wanted to try their limited edition CNY stuffed donut flavor – Ong Lai. We were one of the first few to arrive. The queue was surprisingly short for a Donut Day.
As we were the first few to arrive, we were being given the privilege to place our orders ahead of others. On my first visit few months ago, I don’t remember being given such benefit despite I was the first to arrive in the cafe and was told to queue when asked. I guess I would have to ask San Diann to queue if we were to return for donuts next time. LOL!
Iced Latte | B$5.00
Ong Lai is translated as pineapple in English. Ong Lai comes from a Hokkien dialect known by majority Chinese community in the Sultanate. Pineapple kind of signifies as wealth and prosperous during Chinese New Year.
To celebrate the festive season, TWO SONS COFFEE introduced Ong Lai – pineapple cream custard topped with crumble bits.
Here’s how Ong Lai looked like on the inside when torn apart. As you can see in the picture above, it came with a good amount of pineapple cream custard. The donut texture was soft and fluffy. Filling was smooth in consistency and tasted distinctive of pineapple. All in all, I was fully satisfied with their take on Ong Lai.
Crunchy Peanut Butter Ring
In comparison to Ong Lai, I wasn’t that impressed with their Crunchy Peanut Butter Ring and San Diann agreed. The texture wasn’t as soft and fluffy as Ong Lai. However, the peanut butter glazing on the top was nice. The toasted and crushed peanuts added extra crunch to the donut.
