We all love doughnuts, whether on its own or with a good coffee in Dublin. But it takes a great baker to create a good doughnut. First, it should have a sweet aroma and nice, yeasty flavor. And then when it comes to frosting, it shouldn’t be sickeningly sweet and it won’t leave a film in your mouth (generally caused by hydrogenated oils). These are just a few of many things that define a great doughnut. But Hungry in Dublin team went to many places that offer succulent doughnuts, friendly atmosphere and a unique vibe-because let’s agree to it, you can’t eat enjoy your dessert if the staff is moody or if there is no goddamn good vibe.
