4:00pm mini donut

12-11 mini donut
I don't know why this is called a "mini" donut because it's huge but we're not complaining! And get this, it only costs 80¢! I know, we're on a cheap dessert run through Chinatown lately. This one from Hon Cafe was yummy. More like a chewy and dense fried bread rolled in granulated sugar than an actual donut, makes for a perfect afternoon snack.
Hon Cafe, 70 Mott Street below Canal

Those remind me of the fried donuts we used to get in school when the Home Ec class got to the donut chapter in the book. They were SO good!

Have you guys been to Taipan Bakery on Canal? They have a $1 red bean bun and $1 green tea custard cakes which are INCREDIBLE.
