Hit a few more BBQ joints with RST, Joel and ReneG today, high points were, once again, Old Fashioned Donut, Honey One BBQ and the company. I could go on about Lem's on the South Side, Honey One on the West, but, frankly, I am a bit BBQed out at the moment. (is life worth living if one is tired of BBQ?) so I thought I'd break into full hyperbole overdrive about Old Fashioned Donuts Apple Fritter.
Twenty years ago in Southern California I had an encounter with a perfect apple fritter, crisp, lightly sweet, real apple, flavor that did not come from a can, bottle or chemists lab, never, until I was at Old Fashioned, did I have a apple fritter that measured up to The apple fritter, Old Fashioned's apple fritter may even surpass.
Old Fashioned's apple fritter is perfect, crisp, with tender toothsome apples, scattered areas of sweetness, interspersed with caramelized crunchiness, differing textures, tastes, flavor that pops right out at you. In a word, gastroporn at it's finest.
Mere words will never describe the pure unbridled deliciousness of Old Fashioned's apple fritter, neither will a picture, but, hopefully, you will try for yourself. Just be sure to leave one in the case for me.
