Oregon is home to many things such as the ocean, beautiful views and warm weather, but one thing that is often over looked is the food. Highly buttered crab from the ocean, cheese from the Tillamook cheese factory, cotton candy from the Tillamook fair and of course doughy doughnuts from Voodoo Donuts in Portland.
Voodoo Donuts is an independent store dedicated to creating works of art through dough. With the motto, "The magic’s in the hole" it should be good! I stood in line for nearly 2 hours in the warm August sun for a taste of the doughnuts that have been featured on the Amazing Race, Man vs. Food and Attack of the Show. Sitting down at the outdoor wooden table and biting into the doughy goodness definitely paid off and was well worth the wait. It was probably not the healthiest food to have for breakfast but I am sure the walk from the store through the crowded city back to the truck burned off most of the fat from the chocolate almond covered donuts and 2% percent milk.
Voodoo Donuts was a huge and tasty part of my vacation.
