Doughnut Plant---Is it just me or...?
I recently tried the Doughnut Plant. It was a place that I had long wanted to try. Everything I had heard about it had me convinced that one bite and I would be blown away---I would never feel the same way again about other doughnuts. Well...in reality, it turned out to be quite different than what I'd expected.
When we went, we encountered a short line and both got yeast doughnuts with vanilla bean glaze. The glaze was delicious. The doughnut itself was another story. It was tough and very chewy. I shouldn't have to fight with a doughnut! IMO, it should be easy to bite off a piece and easy to chew.
So...was my experience par for the course? Or did we hit it on an off-day? If so, should I try again? Are the cake doughnuts better? Your thoughts and feedback, please. Thanks!

The Donut Plant is good but I love their smaller, moister cake donuts. I like their bigger, fluffy yeast ones too but sometimes the texture isn't a crowd-pleaser. They're a little chewy. Do a search and you'll see that this topic is hotly debated.
