So today I went to the food-tasting workshop hosted by DUNKIN’ DONUTS at The Phoenix Market City, Velachery. DUNKIN’ DONUTS is officially opening to the public tomorrow (Saturday, May 23, 2015) and the first 500 customers get #365DaysOfDonuts: 365 coupons using which one can claim one free donut every day they eat something at DUNKIN’ DONUTS, over the next 365 days. I made one mistake before going to this workshop: I ate my breakfast!! πŸ˜›

Here are the officials and the chefs of DUNKIN’ DONUTS. They gave a presentation about their various specialty food items. As they introduced each item, they brought it (either a small piece or in full) and distributed it among all members present so that we can taste it! How I wish I had skipped my breakfast — I could have eaten more πŸ™‚

Did you know that DUNKIN’ DONUTS offers more than just donuts? In fact, they have burgers, sandwiches, wraps, iced teas, coffees, and of course many varieties of donuts. They say that they are in between QSR (Quick Service Restaurants) and Gourmet Restaurants. Their philosophy is to stay away from plasticity (perfection) and bring in (or admit) flaws, which even reflects in the names of their food items. Have a look at some food items we were served. (The one in the photo above is: Tough Guy Burger.)

Dunkaccino: Cold Coffee (Jamaican Run flavored & Almonds)

My favorite among the ones I tasted were: Ugly Strawberry & It’s a Mistake (Guava, Chilli flakes) among Donuts; Dunkaccino (Cold Coffee). It seems customers also like chocolate-flavored donuts, but since I don’t prefer chocolate taste I didn’t taste them. The outlet at Phoenix mall is their first outlet in Chennai. If you are going there sometime, you may want to drop in and check it out! πŸ™‚
