This Friday, June 4, is National Doughnut Day, a holiday originally created to honor the Salvation Army volunteers who distributed doughnuts to soldiers during World War I. Below, we’ve rounded up some special offerings available on Friday, as well as some of our favorite local purveyors of glazed, filled, and frosted treats, from the mochi doughnut shop Dochi to the new queer-owned vegan doughnut truck Dough Joy, which reopens this Thursday. For more ideas, check out our food and drink guide.
This mochi doughnut shop draws long lines for its pleasingly chewy-crisp creations in flavors like ube with Fruity Pebbles and matcha with Oreos. The store is teaming up with the local boutique Sairen and the small-batch ceramics business Ceremony Studio to offer a National Doughnut Day Instagram giveaway, with a bundle that includes handmade mochi doughnut mugs, pens, and a half-dozen doughnuts.
