My trip to New York City wasn't only about cupcakes. I saved room for other treats too. One place I knew I had to visit was Doughnut Plant.
I actually found Doughnut Plant by accident. I had heard about it on another blog and happened to be running past it one day on my trip. I made a mental note to come back that night.
I made it back and was amazed when I stepped in the store. This was definitely not your typical doughnut shop. One wall was covered by doughnut-shaped pillows. Opposite that was a display case filled with delicious-looking donuts. I forced myself to just choose one. I had already been stuffing my face all week and needed to calm down a bit. My pick was Creme Brulee.
The Creme Brulee doughnut from Doughnut Plant was easily the best doughnut I've ever tasted!! The custard filling was delicious and the caramel topping was torched perfectly. My only problem with it was it was way too small. It was roughly half the size of a normal doughnut. And the price to go with this delicious doughnut: $3.25! Wow! Small and pricey, but so worth the splurge!
All of the doughnuts weren't tiny though, the rest looked normal-sized. I'm definitely spoiled by doughnut prices here where I can get a chocolate cake doughnut with sprinkles for roughly $0.75. But the taste.....wow! This will definitely be a place I always go to when I'm in New York City. You should too.
