Voodoo Doughnut – Portland

You have all heard of Voodoo Doughnut right? They’ve been on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain, Good Morning America and many many other TV shows. Home of the Portland Cream doughnut (Portland’s official doughnut), the original Voodoo Doll doughnut and the world famous Bacon Maple Bar.

The whole reason I wanted to try Voodoo Doughnut was the Bacon Maple Bar and it was everything I dreamed of. You know when you’re eating pancakes with maple syrup and a side of bacon and you get a little syrup on your bacon? It tastes exactly like that, and the doughnut plays the part of the pancake quite well. It is a right of passage for bacon lovers, or breakfast lovers, or doughnut lovers, hell it’s a must for everyone!

You can get married at Voodoo as well, under a velvet portrait of Kenny Rogers no less! The rest of the doughnuts were good but none compared the the Bacon Maple Bar. There are 2 Voodoo’s in Portland, one downtown and one on N.E. Davis (the one I went to) and one in Eugene. They’re open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and always have a line up. Stop what your doing and book a trip to Portland. RIGHT NOW!! Here’s some more pictures…
