‘Lukuma’ is Greek for doughnut and Lukumas is basically the posh niece of Dunkin’ Doughnuts with bells on it.
The interior is stunning, all in white with pine floors, white tiles, miniature potted palms and large mirrors. Everything is kept immaculately clean. There is a small bar with stools or a large table with benches at the back – which is perfect for a group of people.
Lukumas come in various amalgamations such as a basic sugar lukuma or white chocolate, milk chocolate, dark chocolate, strawberry, custard, dulce de leche (like caramel), chocolate with hazelnut and coffee, chocolate with hazelnut and strawberry, lemon, coffee plus the classic lukuma (a ring doughnut) with no filling but smothered in icing. Lukumas come filled with custards, cream cheese, chocolate or jams, sprinkled with sugar, a simple glaze or smothered in icings of various flavours.
They also have herbal teas, coffees and hot chocolates.
Lukumas was started in Thessaloniki in Greece by a husband and wife team in 1992. There son moved to Barcelona and opened a workshop there. The cakes are lovingly prepared using best quality ingredients – well, according to their website.
A cool and contemporary spot to hang out, particularly if the back table is free. I had the equivalent of a Boston Kreme – it was large and tasty, although could have been fresher. Better than Dunkin’ Doughnuts. For sure. High in calories if you are old fashioned and like to be bothered with such things. I prefer to see cakes as the occasional treat amongst a vegetarian diet full of fruit and vegetables and therefore fuck the calories.
