It’s funny that Wynnie just made a post about doughnuts back in Vancouver! Actually, we at Cameras and Cuisines have had many doughnut adventures. This includes my favourite doughnuts in the WORLD at Lola’s [Seattle, WA], Brian’s visit to Cafe Du Monde [New Orleans, Louisiana], and Wynnie’s latest visit to Lucky’s Donuts in Vancouver. What you’ll notice though, is all the doughnuts we have had are different! And the ones at the American Doughnut Kitchen in Melbourne are definitely unique!

Just outside the Queen Victoria Markets, you’ll find this little doughnut wagon. And after downing a delicious bratwurst sausage at the Bratwurst Shop & Co, these doughnuts are the perfect treat! Another must visit in the area!

The lineup was minimal that day. I think we were lucky, as mentions of it on Urbanspoon only speak of long, long line-ups. Regardless, at the speed at which they were serving us that day, I doubt the wait would be too long any other day. They’ve got their assembly line well thought out.

Boasting simple, yet delicious “American” style doughnuts, I was thinking something along the lines of those mini cinnamon doughnuts you find at carnivals and fairs. I’m actually not a fan of those doughnuts, as they are too sweet for my tastes. Regardless, I thought I’d give this place a shot.

Unsure whether or not they sold individual doughnuts, I saw the only sign they had in the window and just went for the 6 for $6. For the two of us, that meant I had to eat 3, and already I was whinging at the fact. How can I eat 3 doughnuts?!

And it didn’t help that they didn’t look like the most appealing things. Less like doughnuts, more like mini logs of Chinese doughnuts you get with Chinese rice porridge. They were probably double the size of a mini cinnamon doughnut, rolled in fine sugar and filled with about a dab of strawberry jelly.

A bite in and I noticed there wasn’t that much jelly at all! Perhaps it was that batch that I got, but I would have loved to have a little more jelly. Who wouldn’t? But right away, I realized, this wasn’t any usual doughnut. The outside was crisp, while the inside was a soft yet slightly chewy texture. It wasn’t the cake style doughnut that breaks apart easily, or the soft melt in your mouth doughnuts from Krispy Kreme. This doughnut was a lot more “eggy” and very similar to the Cantonese Egg Waffle dessert! It surprised me that it wasn’t too sweet, and before I knew it, my share of 3 were gone and within an hour I craved for more.

You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    A hefty amount of fire, smoke, and haze means you’re often not sure exactly where the targets are.
