One morning a few months ago I was thinking about donuts. That seems normal right? Thinking about donuts in the morning. Especially if you consider it was me doing the thinking. Well anyway, I was wondering who has better donuts, New York or Los Angeles? So I did what anyone would do, I took to twitter to conduct an impromptu (and non-scientific) poll of the best spots in their respective cities. One place that numerous people called-out in the Greater Los Angeles area (I just like how that sounds, Greater Los Angeles) was Randy’s Donuts in Inglewood. And man, I have to agree. Randy’s makes some tasty donuts. After a long flight in LAX, nothing is better than stopping at Randy’s for a cup of coffee and a donut.
Now this doesn’t mean that Randy’s is L.A.’s best donut spot (but I definitely think it is up there), or that L.A. trumps NYC for donuts. So don’t get all crazy. This isn’t a zero sum game. I’m simply saying that Randy’s is pretty great and that their giant donut signage is an amazing example of Americana. I am also saying that non-chain shit always wins over boring-robot-like-chain-restaurants. Now, please feel free to speculate wildly as to who has the best donuts in L.A., New York or America in general.
