Migue's Magnificent Mini Donuts

The weekend of July 4th I went to Eastern Market with Angela, Anna's friend from Birmingham, and a few of her friends. First we had lunch at Banana Cafe, then walked around the newly opened pavilion at the Eastern Market, bought some jewelry, etc. Then Angela and her friends left, and I decided to walk through the flea market area of Eastern Market. That's when I smelled something!!!

Migue's Magnificent Mini DonutsIt wasn't a bad smell: it was an amazing smell of fresh fried dough and the sweetness of sugar! Migue's Magnificent Mini Donuts totally lived up to the name: they were mini and they were magnificent.

It's unusual to have a food vendor at the flea market part of Eastern Market, but such a welcomed idea!

The donuts are made right in front of you. The dough was first mixed in a KitchenAid and then it went through a complicated looking device where it was formed into the mini donuts and then was fried in hot oil: who can resist this?

A bag of seven mini donuts is only $2, and you get to top it with powdered sugar, chocolate syrup or a few other extra toppings.

Next time you are at the Eastern Market in DC, definitely buy a few of these fried sugary treats!

Oh, yes, I like mini donuts....if it's winter, I would dip them half way into the dark chocolate....and enjoy it along with a double espresso...

Oh, how lovely!!! They have these things a lot in the outdoor shopping centres and sea sides in england. I try to stay away though because i find donuts (especially the hot ones) so so so irresistible!

you know my mom says that the one dedicated appliance her mother had was a donut maker she got in her wedding and only used once.

had these donuts today around the chinatown d.c sidewalk fair. these donuts are seriously silly good- warm, light, crunchy on the outside but pillowy on the inside... got a bag at 3pm then went back at 6pm for seconds! happy stomach
