Dunkin' Donuts presents...the kimchi donut
Of course the minute I heard about Dunkin' Donuts' special kimchi donut, I knew that I had to get one into my bloodstream as quickly as possible. Not for myself, dear reader, but for you.
That's why I do these things. I don't go into Dunkin' Donuts and order a kimchi croquette (as they are called due to their lack of hole) for my own pleasure. No, I sacrifice myself on the alter of faddish fast foods just to keep you entertained.
The kimchi croquette is part of Dunkin' Donuts' donuts of the world thing. They've got a yogurt-filled one for Greece and a lentil one for India and blah blah blah. Frankly, none of them seemed particularly appealing, but probably wouldn't be too inedible when washed down with a coffee "Coolatta" or two.
So how was it? Remarkably decent. It was 70% savory to 30% sweet and had a pork (I think) and kimchi filling. Not actually a donut, and not great compared to the abundance of street food around, but a lot better than the abomination than I had imagined (and secretly wished for).
