What: Four Dozen Mini DoughnutsPhotos by Adriana GrantWhere: Daily Dozen Doughnut Co., Inside Pike Place Market, just a few stalls in from the news stand at Pike Street. When: Every day. Cost: $11.09 with tip =$13Official Tasting Notes: The appeal of these tourist-friendly doughnuts is in their diminutive size. It’s all about the cuteness factor. Tiny and puffed round, they’re adorable. But what really sells these doughnuts is their smell: the scent of fried dough wafts through the market, drawing tourists and natives alike. And really, that’s it. These tiny puffy treats are nothing more than sweet fries. You’ll want them hot, not wearing much more than a thin coat of still-wet oil. We ordered a dozen of each, sampling all available varieties: chocolate frosted with sprinkles, powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, and plain. The last two, least-dressed types were easily the best. Plus they were hot. It seemed like the fancier varieties were not so popular, because they were cold. Better by far was the soft, steaming almost gooey dough of the plain and cinnamon sugar-dusted varieties. And after a half an hour or so, these two firmed up with a nice crust, still soft in their middles. However, four dozen tiny doughnuts lingered a lot longer in the Seattle Weekly editorial office than I’d expected. By 5 p.m., not all of them had been eaten. As previously reported on Voracious, The New York Times also visited this market stand recently. Insider Tip: Buy only the warm ones, and stick to the plain and/or cinnamon sugar. Would I eat it again? Yes. Though it’s good to share.
