HOTSPOT: Hoeked Doughnuts


EN

My last time eating a square shaped doughnut was in NY 7 years ago.
So to my surprise when I have accidentally discovered a doughnut shop called 'Hoeked Doughnuts' in Antwerp that sells square shaped doughnuts I just couldn't believe my eyes and I was immediately hooked.
And because it is squared it has automatically the perfect fitting for your Instagram feed which is just great!

Mijn laatste keer dat ik een vierkante donut heb gegeten was in NY 7 jaar geleden. Dus toen ik in Antwerpen was en tot mijn verbazing een donutwinkel genaamd 'Hoeked Dougnuts' tegenkwam die toevallig vierkante donuts verkoopt was ik gelijk verkocht. Ik moet en zal je opeten! Uiteindelijk heb ik 2 smaakjes op en omdat ze vierkant zijn, hebben ze gelijk de juiste formaat voor jouw perfecte Instagram kiekje. Geweldig!

Their shop in Antwerp may be small yet very appealing to look at because the interior is cleverly designed plus the wrapping and packaging is just great!

MatchaMatcha & Bittersweet
Once at home I immediately unpack my doughnut box happily to see my two hoeked doughnuts intact and beautiful. It`s time to taste!
So as you can see the `bittersweet` one which is the chocolate one looks a bit bigger than the `matchamatcha` one but anyways. The bittersweet has big nice chocolate flavour but more importantly the doughnut itself which is fortunately pillowly and fluffy. Very trés yum!

The `matchamatcha` however has a totally different dough texture and has a bagel/bread texture mouth feel. Later I have learned it is made of spelt flour with seeds which makes this doughnut a healthy one. Bonus! I would have liked a bit more matcha powder flavour to it. #matchaholic
They were €2,90 per each (the daily specials €3,20) which I thought were a tad pricey. O well I`m someone who`s adventurous and willing to pay for new kind of food even it`s on the pricier side. As long it`s tasty and worth the money I would come back for sure and would I come back to Hoeked? O yeah for sure!
