after months of hearing good things about it, I finally got to check out Federal Donuts (S. 2nd St. near Federal St.). The Raspberry Balsamic, Caramel Banana and S’mores donuts are baked and ready on the racks, but the sugared Vanilla Lavender is fried to order and served hot and HOLY SHIT was it amazing. I haven’t tried the other novelty flavors yet, but this is the simple incorruptible perfect killing machine of fried dough.
I almost don’t want to tell you about it because supplies are limited and they tend to run out early, but fuck it, I’m rarely in South Philly before noon so you kids get on that action pronto.
