It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

The owner at Gombos is friendly, but the custard donuts he gave me to bring to a party were really stale. The jelly donuts were very fresh though. So its touch and go.

Nothing worse than a stale donut.  If you're gonna be eating something deep fried it better be fresh!

kinda like a donut, the beignets at Jezebel in NY (R Melman hechsher, so not a chasidish shechita type place) are the best thing ever (just had them 2 nights ago.

name: Jezebel
location: Soho
type: Boozy Beignets: 3 of each of makers mark crème filled and hibiscus-rum syrup filled balls of dough, covered with mixed fruit jam
price (if you know): $12, but a restaurant dessert that is actually worth it and easily shareable.
