Last month, thanks to a great post by the lovely folks at With Love From Brooklyn (WLFB, my abreviation), I went in search of New York's best doughnut. This is how I finally got around to checking out Dough. I had been told about it by some of my friends,but it was the post by WLFB of the article by The Village Voice, 10 Best Doughnuts in New York, that finally got me there. They definitely deserve that number one spot. Their doughnuts are plump and fluffy, and the glazes are creative and packed with flavor. These are not your run of the mill doughnuts. With flavor combinations like passion fruit with cocoa nibs, strawberry jalpeno and hibiscus tea, this place will leave you wondering what new combinations they can come up with next. A trip here is a definite must for any doughnut lover as they are quite possibly one of the best in the world.
My half dozen in the picture above consisted of the following:
Top Row: Plain Glazed, Passion Fruit with Cocoa Nibs, Dulce de Leche
Bottom Row: Blood Orange, Coconut, Hibiscus
Word to the wise though if you are an out of towner (i.e. Not a Brooklynite) be aware that this doughnut shop is located on the border of the Clinton Hill and Bed-Stuy neighborhoods. This area, while beautiful is still a place where one must exercise caution and make plenty of use of common sense. Please do not behave like tourists or show up in designer wear expecting to find lots of really cute boutiques around. Also, bring cash because they do not take credit cards.
