With a menu titled *& a doughnut * I thought my doughnut loving dreams had come true. So last week Cathy , my doughnut-loving friend , and I went to the recently opened UMAMIcatessen to try their buzzed about fried to order doughnuts. We were hoping to find doughnuts to dream about, a place where we could temporarily quell our Doughnut Plant cravings until our next NY visit, but alas we were left wanting.
We ordered 4 out of the 6 doughnuts on the *& a doughnut * menu. The tres leches is the only one out of the four that I enjoyed. The tres leches cake doughnut is soaked for 5 minutes and served in a sea of cajeta with cinnamon sprinkled whipped cream on top. The cake is sweet, tender and moist with a nice caramel flavor. I would return for this doughnut.
