After seeing Throwdown with Bobby Flay with doughnut master Mark Isreal, I was inspired to visit his Doughnut Plant when I was up in New York.
Pretty damn good donuts. I tried the Tres Leches, with 3 kinds of sweet milk injected into it, a Coconut yeast donut, and the Raspberry cake donut (below).
The only other time I have been as amazed with doughnuts is when I had donuts from Voodoo Doughnut in Portland. I had the dirt donut (with oreo cookie) and a Tang donut from there a few years ago, and I was a little afraid of the Nyquil-Pepto-bismol glazed.
