As anyone who knows me knows, I will happily travel out of my way for something good to eat. And doughnuts from Dough in Clinton Hill have been on my list since I sampled a delicious bite of one with friends at the Brooklyn Flea a few weeks ago. A trek over to the ‘hood had to happen, and it did last weekend.
The kids were with me instantly of course — who wants doughnuts for breakfast?! — and Chrissy wasn’t hard to convince.
Flavors tasted: dulce de leche with toasted almonds, chocolate with cacao nibs, chai cream-filled, and plain glazed — dulce de leche was the hands-down star, although the kids were pretty happy with the still-warm plain glazed. Sadly, the Earl Grey chocolate eluded me — some lucky girl in line ahead of me ordered the last one.
Dough was brought to Brooklyn by the same people behind popular cafe/takeout spot Choice Market, just down the street, and also worth a special trip. Just more reason to love the cool, evolving world of Clinton Hill.
