Voodoo Doughnut

Saturday I woke up with a major craving for doughnuts, so we got up and drove to down town Portland to the original Voodoo Doughnut shop. 

If you've never had Voodoo doughnuts let me tell you that honestly you are not missing out on that much. Yes they are very cool and definitely worth trying because there are so many unique and different types of toppings, but they're doughnuts like most any other doughnut you can find. 
We have a Voodoo Doughnut (food)cart about 5-10 minutes away from our apartment which is much more convenient but I found that they jacked up the prices by a few cents on everything and they have far fewer options at the cart. So, it was definitely worth making the drive out there at least once. 

So if you have the opportunity to check one of the several Voodoo stores you I would say that you should do so, but if you don't get around to it don't feel like you missed out terribly on some great hidden gem.

Some of the crazy doughnuts they offer are (as shown below): 
Voodoo Doll (chocolate covered, jelly filled and decorated with a face). 
Old Dirty Bastard (chocolate frosting, peanut butter, and crushed Oreo)
Bacon maple bar (what it sounds like) 
Miami Vice (blue raspberry flavoring with pink sprinkles)
And a lot more including traditional sorts!

After we had our doughnut brunch, we took a short walk through Chinatown. There wasn't much of anything to do around there. We stopped at a comic shop took a couple pictures then left for home.
