Standing in a line that wraps around the corner for VooDoo Doughnuts is like a rite of passage around here. I had my induction last weekend, when I waited 45 minutes for my two minutes at the altar of fat and icing.
How were the doughnuts? Like any fresh doughnut should be, sickeningly sweet, messy and lightly greasy.
What did you have? A half dozen: traditional yeast glazed, chocolate cake old-fashioned and maple blazer blunt. The wacky menu is what VooDoo is all about.
Was it worth it? Totally. The best part for me was the line-waiting. I saw folks from all walks of life, locals and tourists, and imagined their life stories, one of my favorite pass times.
How do the doughnuts go with tea? Quite fine! I celebrated the birthday of a friend at the Chinese Classical Garden with a flight of old-growth teas and VooDoo doughnuts.
