the donut man

I still haven't gotten around to sorting through the New York photos. I've been busy enjoying every second of my Spring break. So sad that it's coming to an end.

Last Saturday, I met up with my best friend for an early dinner at The Boiling Crab. Later that night, we picked up a few donuts from The Donut Man. We got a strawberry donut to share, plus one for our friend. It is the best donut ever. The strawberries always taste fresh and sweet (but not too sweet), and the donut itself is so big that you have to eat it with a knife and fork. In fact, this donut is so good that it made the cover of LA Weekly's "99 Things to Eat in L.A. Before You Die" issue.

We also tried a few cream puff-inspired donuts - French donuts filled with cream cheese and topped with powdered sugar. We got all three flavors: plain, blueberry, and raspberry. I liked the plain one the best, but all three tasted delicious. I was afraid that the cream cheese would be too rich, but it was really light and fluffy. I grew up 5 minutes away from Donut Man, and it hasn't changed at all since I was a kid. It's always been great. If you ever find yourself in the San Gabriel Valley area, definitely pay them a visit.
