The Shakoy

The shakoy or what I like to call the “Filipino doughnut” is something of a lost art in my opinion. I can remember my grandfather making them from scratch in the province and how delicious it was when served hot.

In Cebu city, the typical shakoy can be seen by walking street vendors or some local bakeries but are usually served old.

I was pleasantly suprised to discover that Kaffe Alde locations like the one across from Mabolo Church, serve them hot from 12pm to 5pm on a daily basis. I’m happy to know that the Filipino doughnut can still be enjoyed, nice and hot from the fry. Go check it out, but try to go early there are times when there is a line or they run out especially during merienda time.
