Last month Regal Bakery, known for its colorful and flavorful cake donuts, opened its third location in Chinatown.
Not only does it offer a full menu of food, desserts and drinks — including high-quality coffees and teas — but there’s free WiFi and, on every six tables, there are electrical outlets.
Meaning, you can coffice here for hours — and eat as many donuts as you want! Brilliant!
And even better, Jessie Salvador has come up with his version of the famous Cronut, the half-croissant, half-donut hybrid created by Chef Dominique Ansel and launched in May in New York City. It’s become the pastry craze of the year, with bakeries around the country whipping up their versions of this flakey dessert.
And it took Salvador just a couple of days to come with his own.
Right now he’s experimenting with flavors, including Bavarian chocolate, green tea matcha with a white chocolate icing and orange-guava that tastes surprisingly like POG. (It’s my favorite of the three.)
So here’s a peek at the new donuts at Regal Bakery:
