When it comes to describing the divinity of Dough Doughnuts, words fall short. It would be more fitting to list the many frosted flavorings available at the flagship store in Bed-Stuy as well as the newer Flatiron location: How about hibiscus, blood orange, matcha, horchata, Nutella and salted chocolate caramel? These gargantuan fluffy delights have transcended cult status to snatch the title of New York's favorite doughnut. The secret ingredient really is love, as the kitchen crew constantly churns out fresh batches of handmade goodness all day. For the anti-traditionalist, try out an inflated cake doughnut or the swirly Doughka — a doughnut-babka hybrid we can only describe as heavenly.
