Next stop on my 7 Best Doughnuts In NYC Challenge is The Cinnamon Snail food truck. The truck is serving an all vegan menu, including breakfast and lunch items.
But, I had to go for the donuts…you know, for research. I tried the Vanilla Bourbon Creme Brûlée donut.
So, I’ll always keep it honest. At first glance/meeting, the donut was a bit on the greasy side. But, it’s pretty easy for me to work past that. The donut itself had a really good texture with a mild crunch on the outside from the baked sugar, and soft on the inside. The dough had a very pleasant flavor, although I wasn’t really getting a lot of distinguishing flavors. The top-center of the donut is where you’ll find the Creme Brûlée portion. Again, pleasant, but I wasn’t really hit with powerful or remarkable flavors.

The Long and Short: Would I go back? For donuts, maybe not. But, they seem to have a large breakfast and lunch following, so, I would be up for giving that a shot!
Would I recommend it? As a top donut place to try, probably not.
