Cupcakes vs. Donuts

July 13th, 2010

When I think of sweets, I want immediate emotional gratification and I want it deep fried. I want a donut. In Los Angeles it’s California Donuts open 24 hours thank you very much. If I am talking about the perfect of most Perfect Donuts, they are found in Cardiff by the Sea at VG Donuts. When I drive to San Diego, I always leave enough travel time to stop by VG and have a raised crumb donut outside where there is a view of the ocean and slim tan surfer boys.

As cupcakes go, their visual appeal never quite wins out over the taste of something deep fried. Reports say that Magnolia Bakery is to open in Los Angeles at the end of week. I took the photos above Monday morning of their very charming store front. Magnolia Bakery, famous also for their waits-in-lines out the door that always killed my buzz. For all of you cupcake lovers, hopefully the line will be short or at least shaded.

    must check this place out. I love anything sweet and fried ^_^

    to answer your question, the best Pho restaurant in L.A. is hand down LA Pho 97 in ChinaTown. Everything I've tried from that place is really good from their shrimp spring rolls, pho to those noodle salad thinggys and it's really fresh!
