The first time I got to try Gavino’s donuts (Japanese donuts) was when I attended the Blogapalooza event last November. I scanned their flyers to look for the list of branches, and found that the one nearest doughnut shop in Quezon City was at Landmark in TriNoma. Gavino’s Donuts now has fourteen branches, and this doughnut shop will open three more this December.

Gavino’s Donuts is very different from the doughnut shop that we know here in the Philippines. I am not saying that the donuts we are used to aren’t delicious, but it’s just that Gavino’s offerings have a different character—its texture is chewier. I think it’s one of the reasons that would make anyone chomp on one piece after another.

The donuts they offer are made with mochi, which explains why their donuts are extra chewy. The Mochi rings (it’s that their donuts are called) look like spheres linked together to form a circle.

The prices of their donuts are relatively reasonable. Gavino’s Donuts offer regular and premium Mochi rings and Mochi balls. The premium selections are pricier (but you knew that already J) than the regular ones.
