Voodoo Doughnut

Following a hilarious Master Pancake performance mocking the movie Titanic at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Ritz theater, located at 320 E. 6th Street…

…we made our way down 6th Street (which btw, on a Friday night this was quite an experience in itself, lol).

We were headed to one of my favorite doughnut shops, Voodoo Doughnut.  Though it originated in Portland, Oregon (where I first experienced it in 2013), I was thrilled when they decided to open their 6th store on 6th Street (212 E. Sixth St.) in Austin…

While it’s always fun to look into their revolving display cases…

…at their doughnuts with funny names like Old Dirty Bastard, Dirt, Pot Hole, No Name, and Chuckles Doughnut…

And cereal topped doughnuts like their Oh Captain, My Captain, The Loop, and The Gay Bar…

Cream-filled doughnuts like their Portland Cream and McMinnville Cream…

We were there primarily for two reasons…

 

There is my daughter’s favorite…

Voodoo Doll – Their signature raised yeast doughnut filled with raspberry jelly, topped with chocolate frosting and a pretzel stake

 

And my favorite…

 

Maple Bacon Bar – Raised Yeast Doughnut topped with Maple Frosting and Bacon

I just love this combination of flavors…so, so good!

Some other family favorites include…

Bottom middle: Raspberry Romeo – Glazed Yeast Doughnut filled with raspberry jelly

Bottom right: Portland Cream – Yeast Doughnut filled with Bavarian cream, topped with chocolate frosting and two eyeballs, representing the vision of the great city of Portland

Middle: Diablos Rex – Chocolate Cake Doughnut with chocolate frosting, red sprinkles, and a vanilla frosting pentagram with chocolate chips in the middle

Top left: Pot Hole – Bavarian cream filled doughnut topped with chocolate frosting and Oreo cookies plus a trail of frosting for adhering to the proper side of the road to eat first

 

We of course rated Voodoo Doughnut 5 stars and highly recommend that you give them a try if you are ever in Austin…or Portland, Eugene, Denver or Universal City Walk in Hollywood.  But don’t forget to bring your cash because they don’t take credit cards.  Oh, and FYI, though Yelp reviewers rated Voodoo a lowly 3 1/2 stars (BOO!), Trip Advisor reviewers are more in line with us.  They rated Voodoo Doughnut 4 1/2 stars, ranked them the #27 best place to eat in Austin and #2 best place for dessert, behind only Gourdough’s.
