There were zombies and Germans everywhere.
All I wanted to do was to get to Flour And Stone in Woolloomooloo to try one of their doughnuts. They are renowned for their exceptional house-made foods, so a doughnut had to be tried.
On that day, there was a Zombie Walk AND an Octoberfest event. It made the journey entertaining. Well done, zombies and Germans.
I managed to get to Flour And Stone – a small café in Riley Street as you’re heading towards the Cross.
They had a few doughnuts in the window – all the same flavour. In my memory it went something like ‘Honey Cardamom Custard with Peanut Brittle and Black Sesame Seeds’ – but I found the official title on their website – see above.
I’m not a big fan of the cardamom flavour, so I was expecting to be a bit disappointed. And I was, but only because I don’t like the flavour. The doughnut itself was very good.
One thing that really stood out about this doughnut, probably above all the other doughnuts I’ve reviewed on DomNuts, is that I could feel the love. It had a real homemade taste about it. The custard, the dough and the topping all felt genuine and homemade. Like someone had put a lot of thought and effort into making this just for me.
As someone who has had plenty of production-line doughnuts, I really admired the doughnut I got from Flour And Stone.
I didn’t enjoy the flavour, but I enjoyed the personality.
