Hapunan's Ube Ice Cream Donut Makes A Return This Weekend

Hapunan's Ube Donut

It's only been a few months since we last had a taste of Hapunan's collaboration with GrownUp Donuts, creating the Ube Ice Cream Donut, but we haven't stopped thinking about it since.

Taking a perfectly fluffy, soft donut from GrownUp Donuts, Hapunan cut it in half and fill it with a generous scoop of their Purple Yam (otherwise known as ube) ice cream. You're left with a perfectly sweet and creamy sandwiched creation, hitting the right spot after a helping of Hapunan's Filipino dishes.

As the winner of the Street Kai Awards for 2020 Hapunan is considered one of Auckland's favourite food trucks, while GrownUp Donuts are renowned for their gourmet flavours – most of which sell out in a flash. What we're saying is you can count on the dream team to be serving up pure deliciousness every time.

The Ube Ice Cream Donut is the perfect sweet treat.

Originally the Ube Ice Cream Donut was a limited-time treat, with the exclusive collaboration merely lasting a weekend – Hapunan and GrownUp Donuts think we could all do with a special gift at the end of this year. Hence, they will be serving up the ube creation for one day only, and that day is this Sunday, 13th December.

So pack up the car bright and early, and head out to GrownUp's new Henderson Valley Road store to get your hands on an ube donut. Available from 11am to 3pm, these will not last long.

While you're there, you'll be able to get your hands on GrownUp's array of perfectly sweetened adult donuts, as well as Hapunan's gorgeous lunch menu with goodies such as their slow-braised beef in a peanut & annato sauce, and their abodo del diablo chicken in a creamy coconut sauce.

Hapunan will also be serving up lunch.

Your ube donut will be the perfect frozen treat to cool down in December sun, and will make for a great pic on the gram – trust us! Head along to GrownUp Donuts at 44 Henderson Valley Road this Sunday 13th December from 11am to get your final fix for the year.
