Celebrating National Donut Day 2017

Happy National Donut Day! On this food holiday I usually celebrate by spending the day eating donuts at different locations, looking for that donut with balanced sweetness and perfect texture. This year I decided to switch things up a little. Instead of the typical sweet donuts, I celebrated with something more savory: the Everything Sushi Donut from Poke Burri in Atlanta, GA.

While this sushi donut is not actually a standard fried or baked donut, it is in the shape of a donut. That counts, right? It’s a unique food item that’s currently trending in the food space. Poke Burri’s Everything Sushi Donut starts with a bed of sushi rice shaped with a donut mold, with a layer of sushi, seaweed and sauces in the middle and on top. A few more toppings include avocado, sesame seeds and other crispy bits that add both flavor and texture. The sushi donut is packed with quality sushi grade fish and their sauces are on point. Overall it’s cohesive in flavor and the ingredients work well with each other. Definitely worth the trip and trying this sushi donut. It was a nice change up for the typical donut day celebration.

Earlier in the morning...

I actually did start my morning by waiting in line at Revolution Doughnuts for some donuts to celebrate with. It was their 5th anniversary and they were giving away a special mini donut with a candle. You can see the action below in the Instagram video. I bought several donuts to share with Lady Droolius and we enjoyed them all. This box of donuts was from their newest location in Atlanta in Inman Park. The original location is in Decatur, GA.
