I’m about 99% sure I found the exact doughnuts that make Homer Simpson drool. Sublime Doughnuts is located in the shopping center on the corner of Hemphill and 10th St. I’ve been checking it out for a while, but I’m not gonna lie, I mostly haven’t been because the exterior looks kinda sketch:
I’m starting to think I have a legitimate fear of strip mall eateries. However, I’ve heard so many good things about it that I finally decided to stop by.
When I got there, I was surprised to see the owner himself, Kamal Grant, behind the counter. He quickly rattled off the awesome array of doughnuts still available, interesting concoctions from S’mores and Cookies & Cream to Butterfinger. I decided to try a Reese’s Cup, and when I asked if there was something fruity he could give me, Chef Grant graciously offered to make me up a Fresh Strawberries & Cream doughnut.
Both of these were truly awesome (I’m trying to avoid the inevitable “sublime” label), almost good enough to replace my cupcake addiction with a doughnut one (almost–but that’s still saying something). They didn’t feel quite so sinful because the doughnut itself was so light and fluffy. I’m going to try and avoid a Sublime doughnuts addiction, but since I pass it everyday going to and from work, we’ll see how that works out.
Interesting side note: Sublime’s glazed doughnut is used as the bun on copycats of the infamous “Luther Burger”. I most recently saw (and had a friend actually eat) one at Cypress St. Pint & Plate, where it is called the “Sublime Burger”
