If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Best Doughnuts

Submitted by on November 8, 2010 – 4:15 pmOne Comment

Doughnuts are definitely on the fun side of bread-like foodstuffs! (Your Road Trips Foodie always says that the two basic food groups are sugar and fat: doughnuts score high on both scales!) Joshua Pramis, writing for Travel & Leisure, has come up with his list of the best doughnuts (he calls ’em donuts) in the United States. I’m adding my favorite to his list — and because I can — I’m listing my choice first. Here they are. And, as Joshua admonishes, “please, try not to drool on the screen”.

*Long’s Bakery, 1453 North Tremont Street, Indianapolis, Indiana (simply the best glazed doughnuts ever)
*Peter Pan Bakery, 727 Manhattan Avenue, Brooklyn, New York (red velvet doughnut with strawberry ice cream)
*Voodoo Doughnut, 22 S.W. 3rd Avenue, Portland, Oregon (bacon maple doughnut)
*Randy’s Donuts, 805 West Manchester Avenue, Inglewood, California (look for the 32-foot-tall doughnut on the roof)
*Spudnut Shop, 228 Williams Avenue, Richland, Washington (made from potato flour)
*Bob’s Donut & Pastry Shop, 1621 Polk Street, San Francisco (doughnuts the size of your head)
*Top Pot Doughnuts, 2124 Fifth Avenue, Seattle, Washington (from a 1920s recipe)

*Kane’s Donuts, 120 Lincoln Avenue, Saugus, Massachusetts (glazed doughnuts)
*Café Du Monde, 1039 Decatur Street, New Orleans, Louisiana (a beignet isn’t exactly a doughnut, but it’s close)
*Doughnut Plant, 379 Grand Street, New York City (peanut butter and jelly–filled square donut)
*Bouchon Bakery, 6528 Washington Street, Yountville, California (brioche doughnuts)
