The Boston area has plenty of options for doughnut enthusiasts:
• robertlf is fond of Donuts With a Difference. "Try the jelly sticks," he urges.
• Sofra has unusual filled doughnuts with Middle Eastern spices; Bob Dobalina had a worthy "dukkah," a long doughnut with an Egyptian spice-and-nut mixture "affixed to the top with some sort of sweet adhesive."
• SaraASR sighs over the grilled doughnuts with huckleberry and vanilla bean ice creams, served with caramel and champagne foam at Rattlesnake: "to die for."
