Anyone else out there know about Betty Ann Food Shop in East boston ? (565 Bennington st., out past airport)
Been there since 1931, easy to miss, looks more like a nondescipt store front then a bakery. walk in though and your nose is filled with the aroma of frying donuts. These beauties don't sit around long, they're out the door almost as soon as they're out of the frier. They give them to you in a brown paper bag and the smell forces you to pull some out in the car!!! The jellies are simply the best in the world, spherical and darkly fried, as far from dunkin d's as one could get. lemon d'nuts fri only and baked beans sat Am. . Come early, the place is only open mornings ( 'till 10 I think ) and closed mondays. Worth getting up early for sure.
