Ask me if I want a macaroon?
“Do you want a macaroon?”
Yes, I do. I love doughnuts. La Donuteria makes superlative donuts. Light and chewy brioche with unusual toppings. I tried the cherry and yuzu with a crown of mini meringues (€3.50). I ate the whole thing and contemplated trying another before coming to my senses. Instead I bought a chocolate glazed, chocolate cream filled donut with a fingernail of gold leaf at its apex and a chocolate dough one and had them packed in a box to take home to my kids.
As a family, we pronounced them the best doughnuts we’ve tasted. When I start chatting with Richard Bies, it becomes obvious why they are this good. Because he has taken more than a decade of working at places like Eleven Madison Park, Mandarin Oriental Barcelona and Escriba and started making doughnuts the only way he knows how. Perfectly.
Meanwhile I am beginning to suffer from neighborhood envy. The residents of Sant Antoni now have their pick of Cafe Cometa (right next door), Bar Calders, Taranna, Federal and the ultimate will be when the Sant Antoni market reopens next year.
