At last, here is the conclusion to our Road Trip Munchies, Portland edition.
Our last stop in Portland was none other than the famous Voodoo Donuts.
The have quite the interesting decor.
And the most interesting menu that honestly tells you next to nothing about what kind of donut you’re getting yourself into.
The four of us decided to order a dozen so that we could try a bunch of different ones. After sampling a bite of each one, here are a couple of our favorites:
The classic Voodoo Doll definitely had to make it on our list. Not only is it morbidly cute, it has jelly/blood filling and was quite fluffy.
To the left of it is the Old Dirty Bastard, with chocolate frosting, oreos, and peanut butter drizzle. Looks pretty cray..and indeed it was. It was too intense for us. The Loop that’s right below it was actually not too bad…I did have a bite of it a day late when the fruit loops were stale..but I bet it would be pretty good fresh.
Now onto the unanimous favorite…the Maple Bacon Bar
You wouldn’t expect such a simple thing to be so delicious but it really was. The bacon was very crispy and complimented the sweetness of the maple so well. Thank God we decided to get two of these because we were practically fighting for more bites.
We also really enjoyed the Portland Cream. It’s a simple donut with chocolate icing filled with Bavarian cream and is apparently Portland’s signature donut. The other ones we tried were more for the novelty of the names or because they sounded interesting. The Mexican Hot Chocolate, French crueller and Chocolate coconut are just a few that I also enjoyed. All in all, it was just fun to be able to visit this famous food place and get a taste of Portland’s eclectic style.
I wish the rest of our epic road trip was as exciting in the food-arena, but I would be lying if I told you we didn’t spent the rest of our trip eating a good deal of fast-food and at not-so-fantastic diners and hotels. This concludes this series of Road Trip Munchies.There will hopefully be another one in the near future. Pauline and I are dreaming of Food Cult business trips in the future which I think would be the best thing in the entire world.
Stay tuned for our coming food adventures!
