Dough: doughnuts

There’s only so much you can do with $2. You can get a little bottle of fancy water. You can almost get a subway ride. Or, you can get yourself a big round fluffy bite of sweet happiness.

I am very fortunate to have Steeplechase nearby – it’s a lovely coffee shop that, besides many other wonderful qualities, stocks fresh goods from Dough daily. There’s coconut, blood orange, chocolate with nutella cream, passion fruit with cocoa shavings, and my all-time favorite: dulce de leche with almonds. You eat this pillowy goodness slowly and savor every bite. They are about 3000 better than any doughnut you’ve ever had.

They come from Clinton Hill / Bed Stuy. A pilgrimage to the source has been planned. In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy my local supply. Oh yum!
