exhibit a: maple glazed yeasted donut with fake bacon. vegan! vegan! vegan!
source: Sweetpea Baking Co.
This Homer Simpson-style dreamboat was coated in my favorite flavor (okay, one of my primary favorites) and topped with a piece of vegan bacon! Katie Jane mentioned the realistic bacon was from Food Fight! next door.
ala Voodoo Doughnuts’ Bacon Maple bars.
ala after this Fakin’ Fest organizer’s heart and stomach. Plus, it had that whole fresh donut delicious thing going on. I never seem to luck out with very fresh yeasted donuts at the downtown Voodoo.
exhibit b: soy latte
source: Coffeehouse-Five in NE Portland
I was blown away by this quiet coffeeshop’s soy latte months ago. I found myself between buses recently and seized an opportunity to re-awaken via soy latte. They have magical baristas, beans (Coava) and/or soymilk, I swear. The drink was so creamy, you could think it was just barely above room temperature, but, of course, it was just that well done. And magical.
