Here are the fairly popular and pricey doughnuts from Korio -- the dough was firm and chewy and didn't even get soggy after leaving it overnight.

Chocolate hazelnut ($4.50) ๐Ÿซ 8/10
Best out of the lot, the chocolate layer was thick and rich. The crisp chocolate and crunchy hazelnut helped cut through the chewiness of the doughnut.

Honey ($4.50) ๐Ÿฏ 8/10

Faint fragrant scent -- almost floral in fact. If you prefer a more delicate rendition of deep fried sugary carbs, this one's for you.

Classic ($4) ๐Ÿฉ 6/10

This was just covered in a frosted glaze but was actually the sweetest of the bunch. Get the caramel instead if you prefer the taste of sweetness but with an added dimension to it.

Caramel ($4.50) ๐Ÿฎ 7/10

Counter staff asked if I was a sweet tooth before I proceeded to order this. Actually, it's not as sweet as I thought. There was actually bits of salt in it that cut through the buttery caramel? However, not that outstanding overall.

Overall, these were a nice treat but I wouldn't pay that exorbitant amount for doughnuts again -- I'd much rather go for their much more exciting sammies!

Everyone knows that jam-packed sandwiches are sooo fetch right now and which other joint's sandwiches have been more ubiquitous than korio's?

Ok I splurged a good dozen buckaroos on something I could make at home but was it worth it?? I'd say yes but not regularly -- only if you're having a bad day because this sammie is sure to put sunshine in your pocket.

I mean, how could you say no to that ridiculously creamy (and aesthetic) egg gribiche? Aka egg mayo, gribiche is apparently supposed to have a higher proportion of vinegar and mustard than your sando classic, and an addition of capers.

I always thought that there was only one uncharitable slice of spam in the middle of the sandwich but I was wrong. There are actually salty bursts of spam wedged all around the space between the gribiche and brioche. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess -- just like the calories in this handheld indulgence ๐Ÿ˜ณ

๐‘ฉ๐’“๐’†๐’‚๐’Œ๐’‡๐’‚๐’”๐’• ๐‘บ๐’‚๐’Ž๐’Ž๐’š - Crispy spam, Sauce Gribiche, Chives, American Cheese, Brioche Bread. Omg this is so good. Everything I love in a sandwich. Creamy egg mayo with crispy spam and cheese sandwiched between toaster buttery brioche bread. This is a must

๐ŸฅชCheese. Spam. Eggs. Caramelised Onions. More cheese.

An immaculate ensemble of everyone's favourites, "kiap-ed" between two perfectly-toasted pieces of bread.

โžก๏ธFt. Breakfast Sammy [$12] , Biggie Croque [$16] & Bobby Smalls [$12]

๐Ÿ’ฌBreakfast Sammy was our personal favourite, though Biggie Croque came in a close second. Bobby Smalls was a tad too spicy for our liking, but that is because we have a super low tolerance for spicy food. Overall, the sammies are comfort food done right (probably an understatement), and we would definitely return to try out their other sammies and artisanal doughnuts next time.

Their donuts are pretty textbook - soft, not overly sweet, crunchy salted caramel pearls added for better texture and bite, but I didnโ€™t think it was mind blowing enough for me to pay $5 a pop for it ๐Ÿคญ

Finally got to try Korio after seeing them popped up all over my feed! Enjoyed their breakfast sammy thoroughly - it was so power packed with ingredients I felt full after having just half of it ๐Ÿคฃ

Itโ€™s a tad too pricey for me to have it as a frequent indulgence so I shall save it for when Iโ€™m feeling bougee โœจ

Definitely worth a try though!
