Doughnut Plant

The last time I visited the Doughnut Plant, it was about to close for the day and they only had a couple types of doughnuts left (I ended up buying the ginger doughnut so it wasn’t a completely wasted trip to the lower east side, but I wasn’t a huge fan because it was a cake doughnut and I prefer the yeast doughnuts). This time, I decided to visit first thing in the morning to make sure I could buy any doughnut I wanted! I had to cab it to the shop since I was running late for brunch reservations but it was worth it – the shop still had all of their doughnuts and I got to pick from a large assortment:


I ended up buying three – the creme brulee was my favorite – a crackly layer of sugar on top of the yeast doughnut:


Filled with vanilla custard:


Second favorite was the vanilla glazed doughnut with blackberry jam:


I didn’t think there was enough blackberry jam, but it did go all the way around:


My third favorite was the meyer lemon yeast doughnut:


I didn’t think there was enough lemon flavor, Ken thought it was too lemony! I think it would’ve been better if it was a meyer lemon doughnut filled with lemon curd.

Doughnut Plant sells their doughnuts at Dean and Deluca outlets but I think it’s better to buy them at the actual shop; the last time I bought a vanilla bean doughnut at Dean and Deluca, it was a little stale and I think it was more expensive. I wish the Doughnut Plant was closer to my apartment (or easier to get to) because I’d go there every day!

Strangely, I’ve only been to the Doughnut Plant in Korea! Of all places (although, Korea is big on doughnuts). However, my sister went there and did a review a few months back.

I’ve been to that Doughnut Plant in Korea too! I’ve also eaten their doughnuts in a Dean and Deluca at the Shinagawa station in Tokyo!

I usually head here while waiting for a table at Clinton Street.
