(here's a picture of us at the ball drop, HAHAHAHAHAHA, so amusing)
So, I've been going to the donut queen on and off for a few weeks now...IT'S JUST FOR THE COFFEE, don't you people judge me. Suffice to say, when I broke the news to Lindsey on Friday she was not amused, not in the least. The only thing I could do was to assure her that I had not looked at the donuts with a lusty eye or anything like that. I also promised that we would go over the weekend to get donuts and I would blog about it. So Saturday afternoon we hoped in the truck and rolled on down to Queen Donut on Ventura Blvd., just a couple blocks west of Encino. After a quick exchange of pleasantries we got one red velvet cake, one red velvet cake with chocolate frosting, and one plain with some kind of orange frosting. First two, ... , I don't even know what to say. maybe just wow. WOW. unfortunately, the orange thing, not so hot, not so hot at all. damned if I even know why I chose it, I bet the Asian lady hypnotized me with her mind. but all around tasty experience, and all for just $3.75.
Now lets talk coffee. As I may or may not have explained to you before, I lovea good cup of coffee. Starbucks?? Too strong. Fancy coffee place?? Too expensive. But oooh how I love that gas station/donut shop coffee. Now don't get me wrong, some places just have sh*tty coffee. Like, I won't get coffee from the 7-11 in the same plaza cause it is just the poopiest coffee of all time. This coffee however is, mmmmm, just delightful. Just the right balance of mid priced bulk coffee and L.A. city water, heaven. If you listen to anything, ANYTHING, we say. discount the adventures, the rambling nonsensical stories. Find this place and drink their coffee. I'm not even joking, this is one of my favorite cups of coffee in the area. Anyway, diner is ready now, so it's back to eating and watching law and order.
Enjoy what's left of your holiday and as always
