I discovered Underwest Donuts thanks to my friend Malini, The Restaurant Fairy. This place opened in 2014 within the West Side Highway Carwash, hence the carwash donut they sell that I did not try. But we did not go to that location, rather the one they opened last December, outside of Penn Station. There, you will not get a chance to get donuts made a la minute, this place being a tiny outpost. But still, you will get freshly baked donuts.
I was not sure what to get and hesitated between the halva, the brown butter and the banana milk donut. I went for the latter that was succulent. Made with puréed banana and glazed with a banana milk mixture, and finally topped with a dried banana slice and a cranberry, it really has a banana taste from the cake dough to the glaze.
Jodi went for the coconut lime one that was also very good, but I thought not as good as the other one.
I definitely liked Underwest Donuts. Their recipes are original and delicious, and I should mention not too sweet. If you like cake donuts, this is for sure a place to try.
Enjoy (I did)!
