Awhile back, I saw Su-Lin's photo of a doughnut she had while in NY from Dough.
I bookmarked it on Yelp and put it to the back of my mind.
Then Hankyu advertised a NY Fair...and Dough was coming!
The other day, I met up with Twitter friend, H, and we stood in line for these doughnuts...90 or so minutes. (oh and I closed my Twitter account, too much weird spam, sorry, hope you weren't following me there...)
I tried the Chocolate Salted Caramel, Hibiscus and Dulce de leche...459 yen each (tax included).
These doughnuts are huge! The ones in our area these days are usually cake type and they are about half the size (and price).
I was disappointed with the way they packed these though. The glaze was all smooshed. I'm glad I took pictures of the doughnuts in the showcase while we waited in line.
Our favorite was Dulce de leche. Lots of sliced almonds and the glaze wasn't sickly sweet.
Chocolate salted caramel was way too salty, I think they could've done without the sprinkling of salt onto the glaze (you can see all the salt in this pic).
Hibiscus was tart and also had a dried hibiscus on top. Love the vibrant pink color!
What surprised me the most, was that these doughnuts were still soft (and not greasy) even after I kept them in the fridge overnight.
I'm really glad we got to try these doughnuts.
Hope you have a nice weekend.
