Here starts reviews of several doughnuts from Dr Dough, a diner in Potts Point (really Kings Cross). They make their own doughnuts as part of the American-style food in which they specialise.
I went for dinner one evening. It’s a big diner. The music was offensive. Do people really want to listen to that while munching on a burger?
There are plenty of options on the menu, and I’m not just talking about food. Some of the beverages sound very good and offer a unique twist on the otherwise standard fare.
My burger came with a pink bun. A bit weird, but I ate and enjoyed it nonetheless.
My drink was a bit disappointing. Pineapple, mango, banana tea shake. All I could taste was the banana, which was that fake banana flavouring you get in banana lollies and banana milkshakes. I thought they’d do better than that.
I chose from the doughnut menu the ‘Marshmallow Matters’. Sounded good. But… I’m told I can’t have that – not available.
So I went for the ‘Lucky Dip’ – which is like the surprise doughnut of the day. The waiter said it was a ‘Golden Oldie’ – which has caramel and toffee topping, fine cookie crumbles and very thin strips of chocolate ganache. The Golden Oldie wasn’t listed on the menu, but it sounded good.
I will point out that they do change the doughnut menu from time to time. On their website, they show a good selection of doughnuts, but it looks like most are from another era.
The doughnut was very soft, light and cake-like.
It wasn’t sickly sweet, which is good.
The topping was soft, not icing that’s hard-set.
You can get these doughnuts delivered. Could be just what the doctor ordered.
