Some might say that doughnuts are just bits of fried dough. But for me, there’s no better match for a good cup of coffee than a warm, light and fresh donut. And I’m so happy that this traditional treat is becoming increasingly trendy in Montreal. New donut places are popping up all over the city lately.
Last week, I had my first Russian Donut at Chez Boris. This friendly and laidback café on Parc Ave won my heart! Great ambiance and nice space for reading, eating and relax.
Chez Boris’ doughnuts are delicious and inexpensive. One can have a basket with a dozen of them for only $7.50. Fresh out of the kitchen, Chez Boris’ donuts have a fluffy interior and this crispy exterior, coated with a variety of different flavours.
I ordered the chocolate, orange, earl gray, clove & cinnamon and the sugar ones. I really liked all of them. The donuts have the right size, not too big, so you can try more the one without feeling guilty. They’re not too oily or too sweet either.
If you’re not interested in sweets, you should try some of Chez Boris’ savory options like the Donut au canard or the famous Beignewich, made of a donut with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Highly recommended!
The next stop on my doughnut list is Café Sardine and Leché.
