A single bite of the pillowy soft mini fried doughnuts brings gratifying nostalgia. The bag of tiny dozens of Lil’ Orbits is traditionally dusted with cinnamon and sugar for some extra sweetness and crunch, but now you can enjoy in new ways.
SM North Edsa’s Lil’ Orbits stall is the biggest one yet. They wanted the place to have a bit of a “Riverdale” vibe with its neon signs and retro diner tiles. It’s also got a wider menu featuring some Sagada brews and fruity coolers. From cappuccinos to iced mochas, their espresso-based drinks highlight a bold medium roast flavor.
But perhaps the most interesting addition to our go-to orders has to be their chocolate fondue dip. It’s sourced from a local home baker—it’s a delectably addicting smooth and creamy ganache you won’t get enough of.
You can pair it with any of Lil’ Orbits’ flavored doughnuts for P20 a pop and we must say the Mocha and chocolate dip combo is a heavenly match! Or you can have it in the Dippin’ Donut (P120), which gives you a small bucket of doughnuts. It contains 24 pieces of plain mini doughnuts and a small-sized dip.
The only question it leaves you is this: Will you double dip or double order?
