I have my weaknesses too you know! Come on, who could resist?
We finally made our way to Ronald’s Donuts in Las Vegas, and were greatly rewarded. Both my husband and I were in donut heaven. Trust me, these aren’t just good vegan/dairy-free/egg-free donuts these are some of the best donuts either of us has ever had! We actually planned a grocery shopping trip 10 miles out of the way just so we could go back the next week and get some more donuts. I found out later that they have been voted best donuts in Vegas several years running.
Believe it or not, they offer two entire shelves (more than half of the varieties) of vegan donuts … including soy-cream filled donuts, twists, apple fritters, maple bars, etc. When I asked the owner why they churn out so many vegan donuts, she said at first it was because they were cheaper to make! But then, customers liked the switch because the donuts were lighter and more flavorful, so they stuck with it. Whatever the reason … I am grateful!
Did I mention these gems are affordably priced. Their donuts are HUGE! See the pic(s) above … that is the donut next to a grapefruit, not a wee orange, a grapefruit. And the cost, just $.75 to $1.25 per donut. Trust me, it is a value.
Ronald’s Donuts is just a couple of miles from the Las Vegas strip (head west on Spring Mountain Road when you reach the Fashion Show Mall), in the “China Town” region. Don’t expect San Francisco-style glory here. This is the lamest China Town you have ever seen (hence the quotes). But ignore the lack of interesting surroundings and enjoy the donuts!
