As the B38 bus rumbled over potholes, I had a good feeling. I suspected I'd be adding Dough to the "bus-worthy" list. To be bus-worthy means I'm willing to ride a bus to eat at a place. If you've never lived in NYC, the worst way to travel is by bus; they're crowded, slow and attract a high percentage of nutjobs. To be bus-worthy is the highest compliment I can give. Only Baked in Red Hook was on the list, but now they've got company. Dough's donuts are so good I didn't even mind taking the bus back home. They offer interesting flavors like hibiscus, passionfruit, chocolate earl grey and lemon poppy but being a coffee guy I picked one called "cafe au lait." It was so big and puffy I could've used it for a pillow.
We're talking big, fat, yeasty donuts - none of those flat cake donuts (ok, I love those too.) The space is tight, interesting and homespun. If you're lucky you can snag one of the six seats at the window or you can just grab a bunch and eat em at home. Another plus - since it's in Bed-Stuy only serious donut heads will make the hike. Dough, welcome to the list!
