Dough - Brooklyn

Bus Worthy in Bed-Stuy
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!

  1. Donut sure looks good. Are they the normal donuts or do they have fillings inside like DonutPlant?

    I do miss donuts.... although I obviously had my fair share last trip in NY, it sure wasn't enough. You gonna bring some over to SG for me?

  2. @"Puffy" - I doubt these would survive the trip, but because I love you so much I'll head back there and force myself to eat a bunch!

  3. I've heard of Baked... I need to make it down there!!
    That photo makes me hungry. So Dough will be added to my list as well.
    Hooray for sweets!

  4. @Meg - from looking at your site, I see you're a cupcake nut. Time to get to Baked.....

  5. I KNOW! I will get to Baked, it's on my list. Cupcakes are so photogenic.

  6. I tried the hibiscus at was underwhelming =( I was expecting a floral taste in the glaze but it was tasted of nothing! Maybe it was just that doughnut or maybe it wasn't superfresh at the market. I don't know - I dont want to give up yet!

  7. @Jae_Em - I went there and got one coming straight outta the kitchen. It was banging. Jump on the bus and check it out live and in person.
