For those of you who are outside the Austin area, let me tell you about Gourdough’s Big. Fat. Donuts. The motto here is “Keep Austin Weird” and Gourdough’s takes that to heart with some truly unique sweets such as the Boss Hog, Son of a Peach and Naughty & Nice specialty donuts.
Gourdough’s has also been featured on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations. Foodies, you know what that means- it’s the real deal.
Back to the food. Trends are sometime frivolous and unfounded. However, I see now why bacon has taken the dessert world by storm. Bacon makes it better. And Gourdough’s does bacon and donuts the best. I present to you, the Flying Pig. Maple syrup icing topped with bacon- add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make it super special and schedule an extra session with your personal trainer.
This is the best donut I’ve ever had in my entire life. Ever. Hands down. Krispy who?? Please. Happy drooling.
