House Made Doughnuts from Cafe Bink

Taste doughnuts from a James Beard Award finalist at this cozy spot in Carefree courtesy of chef Kevin Binkley. Available all day, every day, Binkley's house-made fritters, both doughnuts and doughnut holes, are nothing short of sheer bliss. And with three types of accompanying dipping sauces -- salted fresh caramel, rich dark chocolate, and decadent vanilla crème angelaise -- sharing might be out of the question.

Churros from Tacos Atoyac

At this bare-bones taco shop in north Central Phoenix, these well-known Mexican snacks are served up just as tasty and crazy-cheap as the dead-on delicious Oaxacan food. Sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, these long, ridged pastries are served up hot and fresh and with a crunchy outer coating. Inside (bonus), there's a creamy center and just to make them especially noteworthy, they're drizzled in honey.

Inside this comfortable West Phoenix African restaurant, headed up by chef Esther Mbaikambey, hide a most rare and deliciously addictive find: Nigerian doughnuts. Called pof-pofs, they're the size of baseballs and have a lightly sweet taste, like a dense doughnut hole. Made to order using simple ingredients -- flour, sugar, butter, and nutmeg -- Mbaikambey deep-fries them into dumplings of goodness that can be eaten at the restaurant or taken home and drizzled with honey or chocolate syrup.

Thanks for the mention! The doughnuts right now at Cowboy Ciao are lemon with lemon chiffon ice cream, crème anglaise, and blueberry balsamic compote. But hurry! They are coming off the menu next week and being replaced with Fry Bread with honey semifreddo.
