Best Thing We Ate Last Night in LA: Donuts at Umamicatessen
We're still reeling from a gluttonous Memorial Day weekend - lots of barbecue, grilled meats and strawberry shortcake. And yet, we still had time to hit Umamicatessen for even more meat, booze and of course, donuts. While Umami Burger's ambitious sibling is really one restaurant and menu with five counters around the room (rather than, say, five counters you order from individually), make a point to drop in for a shot of Spring for Coffee espresso and a donut from And A Donut. Eschew the overly hyped foie gras and jelly doughnut and go straight for the tres leches, a beautiful piece of work with a soft, made-to-order (read: hot) donut swimming in a pool of Mexican caramel, topped with spirals of real whipped cream. It needs a few minutes to soak, but that's ok. It's worth the wait. Plus, foie gras will be illegal soon anyway. Umamicatessen is located at 852 S. Broadway.
