MadTheologian: Your_Huckleberry: . Really good burger joint by the convention center, too(trying to remember the name without having to research or anything)

You mean Burgerville? When I visited PDX sometime back, I would eat there everyday. One day, a Walla Walla cheeseburger. Another day, a salad. And sometimes a grilled chicken. And I would do those surveys that would give you a discount off a meal.

/yes, I sounded fat.


My latest stop there yielded rosemary fries. The closest thing I've have to "frites" on this side of the Atlantic.... Hope they're still on the menu for my next visit.

Donald's Donuts in Zanesville OH
 
2012-04-22 08:37:09 PM
Ronald's Donuts, Las Vegas Nevada. Located in "Chinatown". Run by a Vietnamese couple. Apple fritters so good you'll give up your firstborn child for one. and here's where you'll all call bullshiat, 80% of the donuts are vegan. But you would never know. I swear.

Also vote for Mighty-O Donuts in Seattle.

Rattrap007: Best donuts are from the regional chain The Donut Bank in southern Indiana. That stuff is damn good. Puts Krispy Kremes to shame..


I love Doughnut Bank!!! I never leave Evansville without stopping there and getting a box to take home...damn, now I want one. I, too, live in a doughnut wasteland :(

And Voodoo Donuts is so over-hyped.

mephisto6: vossiewulf: The underlying Krispy Kreme donut is pretty good. Unfortunately they slather it in such a massive layer of double-nuclear sugar that eating a dozen can induce diabetes not only in yourself but in anyone within 20 yards or so and whatever taste the donut has is almost completely lost in the sugar tsunami. I think they could save costs and hassle by making donuts out of the glaze, skip the dough, I doubt anyone would notice.

Who in the hell eats a dozen donuts? You pick one farking donut and eat it.
What are you, five?


Have you never heard of the Krispy Kreme Challenge in Raleigh, NC? 5k + a dozen donuts. IIRC the winning time was under 20 minutes at least one year.

If that doesn't work, it's a picture of Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut based on Homer's dream beer: Maple Bacon Ale.

It tastes very much like you just ate breakfast.

Really? I've always thought of Burgerville as being seriously overpriced. I can get a better burger with a drink any number of places for less.

Generation_D: Portland, they aren't that great.


They have bacon donuts, they have vegan donuts, and they have a donut beer, so Voodoo wins.

Anybody have any suggestions as to good donuts in the DC Area (preferably Northern Virginia)?

They, like many things Portland, are way overhyped.

That is the place. I remembered the name later.
My wife works for a big natural foods distributor and they were having a big convention in Portland. Funny how all these people who deal with soy everything and almond milk and any natural or organic thing you can think of were pouring into Burgerville. All the free range beef and stuff, I suppose. But it's also pretty damn good.
She's going back to Portland next month but I don't get to tag along. Hoping to make her Seattle and possible Dallas trips later this year.

Your_Huckleberry:
Pretty neat town, though I suspect the locales got tired of my "Dream of the 90s" cracks. Oh, well.


If they dumped the mutton chops and vests, they wouldn't have to get all pissy about it. That shiat is only funny 'cause it's true.

Saranac had a maple porter in one of their 'holidays' packs. I treasured those bottles and wished they had an entire case just of that... I'll have to look for this Rogue thing, sounds even better.

Nice to see Peter Pan on the list. Stellar donuts and a classic atmosphere. Add some sassy Polish counter girls and it's pure win.

FFS, Top Pots aren't even the best doughnuts in Seattle.


Used to live around the corner from Mighty-O Donuts. Ah the aroma.......

Other Washington doughnut honorable mentions: Frost Doughnuts in Mill Creek (bacon maple bars), and Spudnuts in Richland.

I think I'm the only person on earth that not only doesn't like ranch, but I don't really care for doughnuts either. I don't mind jelly-filled every so often, but meh. Maybe I'm a communist?

neilbradley: Generation_D: Portland, they aren't that great.

I'm from Portland, have eaten Voodoo Donuts several times, and completely agree with this statement. I actually prefer Krispy Kreme's donuts.


Count me as another Oregonian who thinks they're very meh. Then again so are Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

The best doughnut I've ever eaten was two pieces of bacon, two pieces of sausage, corned beef hash, white buttered toast and a bloddy mary.

/very spicy please
//no, I don't want that peppar vodka crap in it
///hold the salad
////you can leave the whole jar of pickled asparagus
//that is all

AS I SAID BEFORE AND YOU ALL IGNORED ME. ROUND ROCK DONUTS ARE THE ONLY DONUTS WORTH A shiat.

THIS DISCUSSION IS OVER.
 
2012-04-22 09:33:03 PM
The Amish make incredible doughnuts. There is a Dutch Country farmers' market near us, a little too near.

Nothing less than FOOD OF THE GODS.
 
2012-04-22 09:38:30 PM
Top Pot isn't even the best in the Seattle area. Frost Doughnuts for the donut-shaped win.

I'm happy to see Top Pot hate, too. Never was a more average doughnut ever produced, and loved by so many Capitol Hill hipsters.

That is the single worst beer I've ever had the misfortune of tasting. It's a little like what I would imagine afterbirth to taste like. Rogue has really been phoning it in lately. The Maple Bacon beer is nothing but additives and artificial sweeteners. I've had good smoke beers in Germany and this was a poor imitation of what tasted like smoke essence mixed in with the added bonus of a few packets of Splenda. It's truly and utterly gross.

vastcat: porterm: the donut stop in st louis is my favorite,course i live here so i may be biased.

The best donuts in St.Louis is Old Towne Donuts in Florissant. I would kill for a cherry cheesecake donut from there


Damn been in STL for over a decade now and haven't heard of either of these places. Need to check them out. We have tony's donuts by us. Really good donuts. Nothing fancy or unique flavor combos. Just donuts done well.

Forbidden Doughnut: neilbradley: Generation_D: Portland, they aren't that great.

I'm from Portland, have eaten Voodoo Donuts several times, and completely agree with this statement. I actually prefer Krispy Kreme's donuts.

As a previous farker has mentioned, Krispy Kreme doughnuts are awesome when they are hot and fresh, but not so much when they aren't ( a parallel to McDonald's fries could be drawn here...)

Also, Sesame Donuts in Beaverton >>> Voodoo Donuts, IMHO.

/ I miss living up there
// currently live in a doughnut wasteland...



Sesame Donuts used to be our place of choice until we discovered the donuts from Helen Bernhard bakery off of 17th and Broadway. Give them a try some time. I'm glad they're all the way across town otherwise the temptation would be too great.
 
2012-04-22 10:30:10 PM
Krispy Kreme is the most over-hyped donut ever. Not nearly as good as the myth surrounding them.
 
2012-04-22 10:38:15 PM

Rent Party: Generation_D: Portland, they aren't that great.

Farking this. I love Portland, but Voodoo is a damn disgrace. A line of hipsters out the door being pestered by another line of homeless people for spare change. It makes the oyster bar right around the corner damn near impossible to get to, and it is worth the trip.


Coffee at Stumptown, then to Voodoo for sugary fillin's. Yes, it's a 'go to' for some of the "hipster" crowd. Who gives a sh*t? It's worth the mecca to downtown.

Voodoo doughnuts are really good. Top Pot in Seattle is better.


I'm actually from south Florida (never been west of the Mississippi), and I hate hipsters.

Haven't had Voodoo yet (live outside Portland), but I'll agree with whoever said Seasame Donuts in Beaverton is good!

And, I love the Buckeye Donuts love, gimmegimme! It's a classic, if nothing else.

Exactly -- their donuts are so overrated.

The best donuts are freshly cooked and still warm without any sugar glaze, but instead a dusting of sugar and something light cinnamon.

Well ok then. You might try the Saranac one if you ever come across it, it was nothing like that, just had a hint of maple under the porter.
