Go Nuts for Doughnuts, PDX Throwdown (or Doughdown, if You Prefer)
There aren’t many things I would claim to be an expert in. But eating and, by virtue of that, judging baked goods might be one of those things. As we planned for our last and longest stop on our road trip, we put the famous Voodoo Doughnuts at the top of our list. The new-age toppings, the pink box, even a beer collaboration. It needed to be our first stop.
As we shared our itinerary with locals and Portland enthusiasts, we got the thumbs up with one consistent footnote: the real doughnut magic is found a half-mile away at Blue Star Donuts.
The gauntlet had been thrown.
