Mapapa-LECHE ka sa sarap!
If you haven’t heard of leche flan donuts, allow us to give you a brief 101 on where it began.
History: Located in New York, Kora is the mastermind behind this very Filipino take on a donut. Inspired by the owner's grandmother's leche flan recipe, the team behind Kora decided to incorporate this sweet and creamy treat into a fluffy brioche donut. That way they can offer best of both sweets to Filipinos who want a taste of home.
If you’re currently located in the Philippines, unfortunately, you would have to travel to the States to get your hands on Kora’s best selling donuts. However, during these trying times, it may take a while before you can oard a plane.
