|Lemon Poppyseed - This has been my favorite so far. The lightly tart lemon blends with the modestly sweet poppy seeds and glaze, and the whole thing just melts in your mouth.|
Sorry, foodies, you now have to come to Bed Stuy for one of your foodie adventures. This is because the best doughnuts in New York City are now here (though they like to call it Clinton Hill). The same people behind Choice Market and Choice Greene finally opened their new donut shop where the old Roosters used to be. The wonderful Dough people know that only yeast donuts matter, so if you're a cake 'nut nut, you won't be taking up any of the maybe 6'x7' square feet of standing room in the shop. I can finally stop trekking out to Doughnut Plant for my foodie asshole doughnut needs.
|Beautiful. I toasted it, and got the outside just slightly crunchy and the Nutella all melted.|
|Dear god. And that was just the beginning. As I proceeded through the nearly religious experience of eating this, I couldn't keep the warm chocolatey ooze from dripping all over my mouth.|
|The Blood Orange with Candied Orange Peel - Yes yes yes and yes. This is definitely one of, if not the, best. Get it.|
One morning, after eating a Dough donut and then napping, my foodie friend who has celiacs disease texted me: "fuck it. i'm doing Dough. and who better to get a lethal dose of food with me than you." Not sure whether to feel insulted or honored, back I went, and that crazy bitch ordered twelve donuts.
|Dulce de leche with slivered almonds|
|Toasted coconut - This one was delicious! Creaminess all over the soft, dense doughiness. Oh..mm..yeah...|
|Salted Chocolate Caramel - I accidentally ordered another chocolate one because they tricked me with the salt, and it was hardly salty anyway. This confirms it though, no more chocolate ones.|
I'm not sure I'd ever been to Dough at noon on a Saturday before today, but it was packed. Three guys were waiting outside of it for room to get it at all. I assume this is a direct cause of Pete Well's recent NY Times article, which is possibly causally related to my blog. :] C'est possible!
|Cheesecake with graham cracker crumbs|
I gave in to temptation the other day and went to Dough.
|Passion Fruit with Cocoa Nibs|
|Chocolate Explosion Holes (Wow, didn't think about how that sounds till just now) - Pretty good! 4 for $1. Though we (yet another friend and I) were hoping for something inside them, you know, that would explode into our mouths. |
