( If we asked you what your favorite doughnut flavor is, chances are, it's something along the lines of chocolate, choco-butternut, or Boston cream. We'll always have a soft spot for those flavors—but it's also worth going out of your comfort zone to explore the other possibilities with fried dough. How does a Patis Honey-Glazed Doughnut sound? Yup, it exists, courtesy of online doughnut shop Rogue Doughnuts.

Don't knock it till you've tried it: the Patis Honey-Glazed Doughnut (P95) takes advantage of the one-of-a-kind umami flavor of fish sauce to add a welcome oomph to the sweet doughnut. If you're skeptical, just think of how sea salt takes the flavors to a whole new level in the case of salted caramel.

Rogue Doughnuts created their doughnuts in collaboration with renowned pastry chef Miko Aspiras, and the result is a one-of-a-kind flavor lineup that takes familiar flavors and reimagines them in a new light. They've got a chocolate doughnut, sure, but it's not just any chocolate doughnut—it's the 64% Mindanao Dark Chocolate with Cacao Nibs (P95) doughnut. Prefer a nutty bite? Try Rogue's Choco Hazel-Butternut (P125) doughnut, which is stuffed with hazelnut cream and topped with a peanut crumble.

If you like it fruity, you're in luck: choose from the Lemon Salt Meringue (P125) filled with fresh lemon curd and topped with torched meringue, or the Calamansi Glazed (P95) which is topped with a fresh glaze of the said citrus. And if you can't get enough of purple yam, be sure to add a piece or two of the ube halaya-filled, cheese shreds-topped Ube Cheese (P125) to your cart!

Beyond the intriguing flavors, Rogue makes sure they get their foundation right. They employ a sourdough base and cook every piece fresh and in small batches (which is crucial, as doughnuts are the kind of food that's best enjoyed fresh!). Their dough, glazes, and fillings are also made in-house every day, using local ingredients.
