What We Are Eating Today: Dozen Donut Cafe

If you are having a tough day and want to give yourself a treat, try Dozen Donut Cafe, which serves the most delicious gourmet artisan donuts.
The cafe is the first Saudi artesian donut business in Alkhobar, inspired by versions from around the globe.
Instead of the traditional round variety, donuts come in a square shape with more than 12 flavors including raspberry, Nutella, vanilla custard, shortcake and cheesecake. They are handmade, with care given to the smallest details.
The cafe offers options that cannot be found in similar shops — such as custom letter donuts of different sizes, colors, topping, fillings and themes of your choice.
The business also offers three-layered donuts, baby donuts and XXL donuts made for special occasions.
If you were thinking of treating your best friend to a special celebration surprise, it’s worth considering the three-layered birthday cake donut, topped with a pink glaze and rainbow sprinkles.
The menu changes every month as they come up with new flavors such as citrus meringue, tiramisu, raspberry pistachio, blueberry swirl and crunchy crunch, a dark chocolate donut with crispy salty chips.

Troubled Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt confirms cancer diagnosis

Troubled Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt confirms cancer diagnosis

  • In August, Dutt had issued a statement on social media saying he was “taking a short break for some medical treatment”
  • Dutt shot to fame in the mid-1980s in a string of action movies in which he performed his own stunts, earning him his nickname

MUMBAI: Bollywood star Sanjay Dutt, whose life has been so colorful and tragic that it became the subject of a biopic, confirmed he has cancer following weeks of media speculation.
“This is a recent scar of my life, but I’ll beat it. I’ll be out of this cancer soon,” 61-year-old Dutt said, pointing to a scar running from his left eyebrow across the side of his head in an Instagram video posted by Bollywood hairstylist Aalim Hakim late Wednesday.
Dutt also confirmed he would start shooting his next movie “K.G.F: Chapter 2” in November.
In August, Dutt had issued a statement on social media saying he was “taking a short break for some medical treatment.”
The Hindi-language actor, nicknamed “Deadly Dutt,” served time in prison for possessing guns supplied by gangsters responsible for bombings in Mumbai in 1993 and has also battled drug addiction.
Dutt shot to fame in the mid-1980s in a string of action movies in which he performed his own stunts, earning him his nickname.
But the star was also struggling with substance abuse, including heroin and cocaine, that was said to have been sparked by the pain of losing his mother, Indian screen icon Nargis Dutt, to cancer.
After a break he returned with a string of hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s including “Jeete Hain Shaan Se” (“We Live with Style“), “Saajan” (“Beloved“) and “Khal Nayak” (“Villain“).
But his life took a dramatic turn when he was arrested following the orchestrated bombings in Mumbai, then called Bombay, in March 1993 that killed 257 people.
Dutt was eventually convicted in 2006 of holding guns supplied by mafia bosses who carried out the blasts.
The attacks were believed to have been staged by Muslim underworld figures in retaliation for religious riots in which mainly Muslims died, following the razing of an ancient mosque in north India.
He was originally given a six-year term and spent 18 months in prison before being released on bail in 2007, pending an appeal.
In 2013, his conviction was upheld but his prison term was cut to five years, and he was sent back to jail before being released early in 2016.
Dutt has also been married three times. His first wife Richa was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1987 and died in 1996.
In 2018 a film about his life, “Sanju,” was released covering the period from just before Dutt’s Bollywood debut with romantic drama “Rocky” in 1981 to his release from jail in 2016.
