Andonand - Tokyo

Jetlag Antidote Donut
I was really feeling the old jetlag this morning but Pingles found me the cure - an affogatto donut from Andonand. They're owned by Mr. Donut but take it up a notch. Some kind of evil genius works here and comes up with ideas like pouring a hot espresso shot over a sugar-laden pastry.

Here she is pristine, with the expresso riding shotgun.

Mid-pour - the espresso quickly carved a dark canal, which my crappy camera doesn't have the shutter speed to capture.

About one minute later - no lie. Jolted me awake. Like someone reached in and grabbed my heart and squeezed it over and over.

Pingles rich chocolate donut was nice too, but in a more ordinary donut way. It was hard to down-shift to normal donut speed after what I'd just been through.

As you can see, this is a premium donut shop. We were early-birds this morning, just about the first ones in.

If you're ever in Tokyo, you'd be smart to give this a try.
