Nicole Taylor of Hot Grease, an online radio show at HeritageRadioNetwork.com, organized a “Donut Crawl” on Saturday, March 19th, 2011. The event started at Dough on 305 Franklin Avenue in Brooklyn. I’ve had their hibiscus donuts, and they are quite delicious.

Later, I would meet the group at Donut Plant in the Lower East Side of NYC. My favorite flavors were Pistachio and Orange. Next, we walked over to a vegan bakery, BabyCakes, to try their Salted Caramel donut. The cupcakes were quite tempting, too.Temporarily taking a sugar break, a small breakout group walked around the corner to Vanessa’s Dumpling House. I tried Jackie‘s sandwich stuffed with slices of duck and house-made kimchi between fluffy sesame seed bread. My steamed basil and chicken dumplings were flavorful, too. Later, I would rejoin Nicole’s group at Traif in Brooklyn for brunch. The dessert was a donut with crumbled bacon served with a scoop of coffee ice cream. At least 20 people participated in Nicole’s Donut Crawl event. To see reviews of each donut place, visit Twitter #DiscoverDonuts. We’re all anxiously awaiting for Nicole’s next appetizing event.

    OK, wow. Just WOW! We did a bakery crawl once, and it was sugar overload. It’s nice to go though because you have reason to try all the decadent things you may not normally eat. This is perfect to share with our NY friends!
