Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend was clearly wrong. Speaking on behalf of all the girls (boys and everyone else) it’s indeed a ‘dough ring’ better than all other rings. Glazed donuts, filled donuts jelly donuts or sprinkled donuts, people adore them all. Many options available locally are still struggling to perfect their recipes but few in Karachi have taken the place of Krispy Kreme in people’s hearts.
Here are 9 places in Karachi from where you can get fresh donuts:
