Where: South Lamar (Between Alamo Drafthouse & Saxon Pub)
Heaven has ascended on Austin in the form of a donut. A fresh, made to order, smothered in your choice of delicious goodness donut. The genius creators of Gourdough's (Big.Fat.Donuts) has brought what might be and probably is the most tempting and hard to resist airstream food trailer yet to grace the streets of Austin.
I can't down play the idea of how smart a gourmet, fancy donut place is. Especially for south Austin. The flavor combinations and donut concepts are great and they all sound and most likely are delicious. I am pretty sure you can find something that everyone will like. Go Now.
Since Claire and I are big fans of all things donut we made a special trip all the way from Pflugerville to S. Lamar just for this, at 10pm. Seriously, we drove 35 minutes for donuts. They had a donut version of rum cake (my favorite) and a heath chip covered one (Claire's favorite candy) and so the madness ensued. We each had one and we each needed to sleep for a few days afterward.
I'm just gonna break it down for you:
1) They have over 20 different flavor combinations of Donuts (including one with oreos, one with a chicken strip, and of course one with bacon).
2) They make them when you order them. That means they are piping hot.
3) They aren't breakfast donuts. That is why they are open 12pm-2am.
4) They aren't light and fluffy like a traditional donut, more dense, chewy, and sweet, like cake almost.
5) Be prepared for either a sugar coma or a really long nap after eating one.
6) Go there daily...yes they are that good and I can only thank God we live so far away or I might be huge
7) Add a scoop of ice cream if you want to get crazy
8) The owner was awesome and even came out to ask if there are any improvements that needed to be made
9) Try the Sailor Jerry...it's amazing!
It's the best idea ever for a food trailer, they are spot on with the delivery of the concept and I can only barely hold in my excitement to try the other 21 flavors I have yet to taste. Heaven has arrived on south Lamar.
