In case you missed it, Friday was National Donut Day. Doesn’t that just sound incredibly wholesome and all-American?
Though I enjoy the occasional Krispy Kreme glazed donut, it’s akin to eating sweetened air. What I’m partial to is a delectable rainbow sprinkle donut. My rainbow sprinkle donut standards are super high and it starts with the dough. It has to be more than just a vessel for the sweet glaze.
Needless to say, I’ve gone through my fair share of lackluster donuts across L.A. Lucky for you, the only 3 donuteurs I recommend are on the Eastside. These artisans are true to the art of donutery with fresh batches every hour and lines out the door.
