Doughnut Plant. Pickles.
I ♥ doughnuts. I ♥ pickles. Together. What a magical combo. Especially peanut butter and jelly doughnuts and pickles commingling. This really is true. (My taste in food has, at times, been called iffy. I often eat plain yoghurt mixed with avocados, tomatoes, cheese and apples - with a spoon of peanut butter as a chaser. This is just one example). So, for me the Lower East Side is a place where concordant combinations are made, where not only peanut butter and jelly doughnuts exist, but also crème brûlée, crystalized ginger, vanilla bean and passion fruit (in various forms of yeast, cake and jam), oh my! Plus the Pickle Guys and their vats of soused pickles are, gratefully, close at hand.
Even more than doughnuts and pickles, I ♥ these people (below). They are the sort who bring me to places like Doughnut Plant and pickle emporium.
