Portland’s famous Voodoo Doughnuts 

We had such a late lunch, we weren’t hungry for dinner.  It was approaching 8:00 pm, and I suggested skipping a proper dinner for Voodoo Doughnuts instead.  I didn’t hear any complaints from Stephen or mom, so we googled the address and made our way to the famous doughnut shop.

The place is open 24 hours, and its cash only.  It’s in the sketchy part of town, near Chinatown, and there’s a lot of pan handlers and homeless looking people begging for money.  We found parking off the street behind Dante’s pizza, and also found the line to get into Voodoo.

The line didn’t take that long… I’m estimating 20 minutes.  The store had 4 people working the counter.  Since it was cash only, some customers had to get out of line to use the ATM machine located by the door. There’s also plenty of ATM’s located on the same block of the store should that machine run out.

We didn’t get that many doughnuts… just 5. We got the Portland Cream Doughnut (the official doughnut of the city) as well as the Voodoo Doughnut, an Apple Fritter, a Chocolate glazed, and Stephen’s favorite, the Buttermilk Bar.. setting me back $9.00.  Since it was cash only, I broke my $100 bill for this purchase.

Was it the best doughnut I’ve had? Oh god no! It was too sweet for me. But, at least I can say I’ve been and let’s leave it at that.
