They actually had two cheese-topped donuts from Indonesia set out on a table: a glazed yeast donut and a chocolate frosted yeast donut. The glazed ones were covered in shredded parmesan cheese, while the chocolate donuts sported a sprinkle of parmesan cheese along the outer edge of its ring. I tried them both. Why not? Right?
I'm not going to say I regret it, but I will say the people in Indonesia definitely have different tastes in donuts. The cheese coupled with glazed fried dough made for a disparate paring; it felt like eating two separate things that didn't go together at all. The parmesan added that hard cheese texture as well as an abundance of sharp saltiness that felt jarring against the sticky, airy, soft donut. The chocolate donut was a little better in that it had a good deal less cheese so that the two were a little better balanced but still weird.
I did see donuts with pistachio icing on the table, which sounds like something that might work here. I had an internal debate about trying it but was stuffed and all sugared out at that point.
