In search of some sweet sugar-glazed fried dough? Unlike many other countries where a doughnut shop, like Krispy Creme, is on every corner, finding doughnuts in Hong Kong is a bit of a mission. Nonetheless, Little Steps mission was successful, and we found some finger-licking good donuts. Here is our guide to the best doughnuts in Hong Kong (or donuts in Hong Kong for some!).

One of the latest bakeries in Sheung Wan and serving fantastic donuts as well as other delicious pastry items, both European and Asian inspired. The donuts have a bit of far-east flavor to them, think red bean, matcha, and taro. They are also slightly denser and larger than your standard donut. A delicious mouthful.
