Ostrich and The Egg
- South African Koeksisters with:
- Table Mountain (Original Coconut)
- North of the River (Spiced Coffee & Cocoa Crumble)
- Garden Route (Sable Biscuit, Toasted Pistachio & Sesame Seeds)
The Spiced Coffe topping was also enjoyable, though we felt that the boldness and bitterness of the coffee and cocoa crumbs distracted away from the complex and delicious flavours of the donut itself.
Being the pioneer in offering these traditional South African Koeksisters to culturally diverse Melbourne, Ostrich and The Egg offers these distinctly different doughnuts that definitely provides a healthier way to enjoy a sweet treat. From the use of various spices to the methods of cooking, these are no ordinary donuts and would definitely broaden your culinary horizon.
Would Penguin Eat Again?
Most definitely. I’m always down for healthier options to pigging out, and these koeksisters definitely hit the spot!
Penguineats would like to thank owners Gary and Maureen for inviting us to sample the first koeksisters in Melbourne!
