Bready Onion Rings

My SO said he once had onion rings that were fried but the outside was soft and breadlike (like a donut) rather than crusty and crunchy like typical onion rings.

Has anyone heard of onion rings like this? Does anyone have an idea of where to get them from?

  1. Sounds like a bhaji, rather than a true onion ring.

      Hmm... where can I find a bhaji in LA or in Orange County?

        Bhaji can be had at most indian restaraunts. I roccomend Gungadin or clay oven in the Valley...but you can get them pretty much anywhere.

    2. Alcove Cafe in Los Feliz has what I think your SO is looking for. IIRC, they are huge rings with almost a cakelike thick moist coating. Very rich and filling...couldn't eat more than two or three.

        I was just going to say Alcove! My husband & I order their steak salad wh comes with a few onion rings -- to be honest, they're not my fav. Kinda lay in your stomach like you just ate a stack of pancakes. That said -- check out the Alcove (esp after my ringing endorsement!).
