Sorry for the obsession with Doughnut Plant, but I think I've discovered the best donut ever: the Blackout donut is chocolate cake with chocolate crumb topping and chocolate pudding filling. The whole thing just falls apart in your mouth when you bite it, and dark chocolate the way I like it - not too sweet -- yum!!
Also while walking back to the West Village along Grand Street, we grabbed a bag of the hot mini-cakes by the Chinatown vendor that the NY Times has written about. 20 bite-size cakes for $1. The little steaming vanilla-ey, orange-y, nuggets were so easy to just pop in your mouth while walking.
