Is it just me or are people just making up fucking holidays? #nationalbestfriendsday #nationalcatday #nationalhillbillyday #nationalgingersnapday #nationalwhogivesafuckday Most of them I could care less about. But on June 5th a day came that I sat in wait for…..#nationaldonutday Hells freaking yeah! I took to the internet trying to find Houston’s best donuts. Though I got a lot of hits, my travel schedule that day worked out that I would be down the street from River Oaks Donuts.
As it’s name eludes River Oaks Donuts is nestled in River Oaks. Dude……make a wrong turn in this area and you might end up at Scarlett O’Hara’s house. The houses are amazingly gorgeous which is fitting because at River Oaks Donuts the donuts are fucking gorgeous. I stood in the small shop, which has no tables or chairs, staring at rows and rows of beautiful round pastries. I ordered a dozen donuts and two cronuts. OMG! Yall, these donuts were an orgasm in my mouth. They were so pretty, I almost did not want to eat them…..but I sure as hell did.
First off the cereal donut……I originally got this one donut for my husband……Unfortunately he only got one real bit out of this one. I ated it………….yes ated…….It was amazing. The cereal was just a tad bit stale, but not stale enough that it ruined the donut. The sweetness of the toppings is balanced by the dough. The dough is a light sweetness that had a small hint of vanilla.
If you have ever been to New York you may have heard of the legendary Cronut. Well River Oaks offers it’s own take on the Cronut. I cannot for the life of me remember what they called it, but it was like Cronut, but maybe Crownut…I don’t remember. My bad. Anyway this shit was amazing….it was flaky with tons of pockets of holes consistent with a well made croissant just the right amount of glaze and sweetness. If you like croissants you will fucking love this thing.
Not only are their donuts amazingly gorgeous, their presentation is lovely and everything I tried was amazing. Although, I haven’t been able to try out everything they offer. Looking over their online menu I look forward to going back soon! Maybe tomorrow…… Find out more about River Oaks Donuts Here
