Ok, so, I let my friends take me out on some dining adventures, but, I can’t go to a different city, or any city for that matter, without some sweets. So, I had to check out Astro Doughnuts And Fried Chicken in Washington DC.
Everything here is made fresh on premises daily. They have some amazing sounding flavors and exciting, rotating special flavors like Birthday Cake and Espresso. Oh, and of course the fried chicken, combining two great comfort foods. But, I came for the doughnuts.
I went for one of my favorite flavor combinations, the nostalgic Peanut Butter and Jelly. Sandwich, what? PBJs should all be in doughnut form, this one was so delicious. The doughnut is light and pillowy, glazed with this wonderfully sweet peanut butter coating.
And inside, yup, generously injected with the jelly. What I really liked here, was that the jelly tastes fresh and not artificially sweetened, balancing out the sweetness of the glaze really nicely.
Name: Astro Doughnuts And Fried Chicken
Location: 1308 G Street, NW Washington DC
The Long and Short: Would I go back? Without a doubt. Next time, in addition to the PBJ, I’m going for that Creme Brûlée.
Would I recommend it? Uh, yeah. Get your Astro over there.
