Tim Hortons, the famous Canadian fast food chain, has finally opened its doors to Filipinos last February 28, 2017. With its first Philippine store in Uptown Bonifacio, it is also the first one in Southeast Asia.
Being a huge fan of How I Met Your Mother, I’ve always been curious of what Tim Hortons’ donuts tasted like, and just recently, we tried it out.
Since it’s still new to Filipinos, customers have to line up first outside the store as the place could get overly crowded if they’ll not limit the number of people inside.
Upon entering, the place has a warm and cozy vibe to it, a perfect place to have some donuts, coffee and a little chat with friends.
We ordered what most blogs recommended: the Boston Cream Donut (₱50). We also ordered the Chocolate Eclair (₱50), Bagel with Cream Cheese (₱75), box-of-10 Timbits (₱80) as our pasalubong, and Frozen Hot Chocolate (₱125 for small) and Hot Chocolate (₱100 for small) to go along with the donuts. We wanted to try their best seller Iced Capp (₱135), but it was not available at the time.
The Boston Cream Donut tasted so good! It had a chocolate glaze on top and a bavarian filling that wasn’t too sweet. The Eclair, on the other hand, had a generous amount of whipped cream inside and also a chocolate glazed top.
The bagel with cream cheese however, was on the savory side, with the bagel slices being chewy and not hard, smothered with cream cheese in the center.
Both the iced choco and hot choco complemented well with all the donuts we had, but the hot choco would be best if eaten with a bagel.
At home, we tried the assorted Timbits. It reminded us so much of Dunkin Donuts‘ munchkins, but minus DD’s butternut. The Timbits, if bought individually, would cost ₱10.
Aside from donuts and pastries, Tim Hortons also offers sandwiches, iced teas and fruit juices, to name a few.
Tim Hortons is open from 10am-10pm every Sunday to Thursay, 10am-11pm every Friday to Saturday, and is found in Uptown Mall, Bonifacio Global City.
