Nine Favorite Doughnuts in Phoenix
Doughnuts with salted butterscotch at The Grind.
9. Bomboloni from Cowboy Ciao
The bomboloni at Cowboy Ciao are called "the fancy doughnut situation" for a reason. They're fancy. But what isn't at Cowboy Ciao? After the Stetson Chopped Salad or the Exotic Mushroom Pan Fry, we like to end our lunch or dinner with the fancy doughnut situation. The bomboloni are airy, featherweight dough pockets filled with a tart berry jam. That alone is reason to indulge, but the creme fraiche dipping sauce on the side? That's reason to moan mid-doughnut. We like to nibble at our doughy, tart bomboloni to take full advantage of the rich sauce on the side. It's like liquid custard, or liquid gold, depending on whom you ask.
Deep-fried and rolled in sugar, after the jump.
