Cinco de Mayo special: a strawberry margarita doughnut ($2.50) with an unmistakable splash of flavor more often encountered during happy hour. In retrospect, a lime margarita would have been the more timely order, given the citrus fruit's current scarcity. Perhaps I'll be able to order a second round sometime over the summer.
Previously: From an afternoon when I photographed (and consumed) a Sicilian seafood bruschetta, an Uruguayan-Basque sausage sandwich, and a spicy Togolese stew, the photo that won the most favor from my friends was of a doughnut (below). Point taken: There's something to be said for the exotic, and there's something to be said for caramel (salted caramel) and pecans.
