Cupcakes are cute, macarons are pretty, but there's nothing like biting a warm, glazed, fluffy piece of donut. Sounds like "Uhm..." or "Oh.." followed by an endless gushing are usually how I, and I think most normal people, react after that first, sweet bite of the good ol' deep-fried goodness (although a lot people prefer them baked these days). That's why I immediately said yes when Alyssa from Zomato Dallas invited me to a Foodie Meet-up at a donut shop called Glazed Donut Works.
I was about 18 minutes late, due to traffic, but I'm glad that I got there just in time to mingle with bloggers I haven't met before, while sampling Glazed's delicious fall menu.
Pumpkin Old Fashioned - S'mores (they make their own marshmallows!) - Maple Bacon Little John (bacon makes everything better!)
Apple Caramel Cobbler Crunch (amazing!) - Red Velvet (love that I could still taste the cream cheese, people tend to make the icing too vanilla-y) - Turtle
Donut Balls! Pumpkin - Chai Spice
What good are donuts without coffee right? Glazed teamed up with Full City Rooster coffee roasting studio and served us a fall favorite : Pumpkin Spice Latte and my favourite : the one in the picture here, S'mores Latte.
Donut samples for dinner! Yay!
I like details that add character to the store's whole ambience. Oh and I love trying something I've never tried before. Like Donut Grilled Cheese with Bacon!
This easily became my favorite. Period.
The super moist and gooey Fluffernutter right here ruined my lipstick, and I didn't even care! Especially because it was time for us to put our aprons on and get to work!
Yup, some real skills we're learning here, filling and decorating Banana Pudding and Pumpkin Brown Butter Pecan donuts before stuffing our face with them. Glad that nobody got hurt in the process :P We actually had a lot of fun!
At the end of the event, we got to keep the aprons and the chef hats, bring home some Zomato goodie bags, and some donuts!
This was by far the best Zomato meetup I've ever been to. I fell in love with doughnuts all over again, met some interesting new people, and the best part was bringing home a box of donuts to J and Mr.Man. J actually ended up eating 3 donut balls before he fell asleep. Ah..I won't change all this for the world :)
