There are certain things that intrinsically define a city. For Philadelphia, it’s the cheesesteak. For the entire South, it’s a giant pitcher of sweet tea and fried WHATEVER YOU WANT.
And for Portland, Oregon, apparently it is doughnuts. Lots and lots of doughnuts. But not just any doughnuts, mind you. Magical ones that come in pink boxes. Multi-layered doughnuts that can clog your arteries 14 times faster than any normal nut of dough.
Here now is my ninth Wandering Wednesday video-blog adventure, filmed during my epic road trip to Seattle last month. As I explain in the video, there was more to this city than just doughnuts.
But mostly, there were doughnuts.
If you could have the most perfect doughnut in the world, what would adorn its surface?
