Al Capone, originally uploaded by margeeness.

Last Thursday, while waiting for The Dark Knight Rises, I had an encounter with Al Capone, not the infamous American gangster but a mouth-watering doughnut variant from J. Co Donut and Coffee. Covered with white Belgian chocolate smothered with almond nuts, Al Capone has become the resto’s best-selling variant.

J. Co is the newest premium doughnut shop in the Philippines with a couple of branches around the Metro Manila. It originated in Indonesia. And it’s relatively cheaper than Krispy Kreme.
