Crosstown Doughnuts, Soho, London
I had first encountered Crosstown Doughnuts on my lunch at Tombo, where I declared the matcha one fantastic-inventive-great! So I was just as excited checking out the full blown store in Soho. London’s a big place, which makes it easy to miss a spot, though Crosstown has some coverage with four stores across the scene. There’s some rave reviews and lots of tantalising flavour options which hypes up the experience somewhat. I had the kiwi(fruit) and green apple (£3.50). This is a sourdough based, with a fruit compote with mint-infused white chocolate icing. It wasn’t quite as wow as the cake-based one I had last time, but is a solid donut option for these parts. The sourdough base ends up being too much bread-like for my donut preferences. There’s a good amount of compote in each bite and it’s great tasting. Crosstown make all their own, and you can feel that with every bite having chunks of fruit. Will return.
