Melbourne-based donut and coffee chain Lukumades has launched in Singapore with an outlet on Arab Street – known for its street food, restaurants and bars. 

Lukumades offers an extensive menu of Greek-inspired loukoumádes – bite-sized deep-fried dough balls – alongside espresso-based coffee, fruit-based iced beverages, milkshakes and ice cream. 

Founded as a food truck business in 2016, Lukumades now operates eight stores in Australia alongside 11 international sites across Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and the UAE. The brand also expects to make its US debut in 2024 with an outlet in Florida and is currently seeking franchise opportunities in the UK.  

Lukumades’ Singapore debut comes three months after Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons entered the market.  

Although Tim Hortons has a more extensive espresso and filter coffee menu, it also offers its own popular take on fried dough balls – Timbits –  first introduced in 1976. 

Fellow international brands Dunkin’ and Krispy Kreme also have a strong presence in Singapore, operating 20 and 15 stores respectively. Dunkin’ offers its own version of the bite-sized dough balls which it markets as Munchkins
