Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken

Does anyone know if the G St location is open yet?

  1. This place is open (and now open on weekends), and I got a shot to try it on Saturday when I was downtown shopping. I had the creme brulee donut, which I found pretty amazing. A lovely burnt caramel top crust, yeasty dough, pastry cream inside. Very very rich, and I've never eaten anything like it.

    They were also very friendly in the little shop (no seating, just a couple benches outside) and explained all the donut flavors to me. They had two cake flavors, and both filled and un-filled yeasty donuts. The Saigon cinnamon was the special that day; that looked good too.

    Will have to try the chicken another time. They have sriracha wings, which I find tempting.
