Eat This: Ginger Donuts from Tsunami
When someone told me that Tsunami had ginger donuts on their dessert menu, I got all excited imagining a spicier version of, well, a Gibson’s donut.
I was a little surprised (but pleased) when I ordered them last night and got these:
The three donuts were more like beingets than regular donuts, which is a good thing. They’re deep fried and served hot, which gives the outside a crispy shell and the inside a gooey, cake-y quality. Their ginger taste was more of a suggestion than a major theme, which makes them a little more approachable (apparently, not everyone likes a strong, spicy ginger flavor).
And bonus – they come topped with a little scoop of coconut sorbet. I recommend cutting the donuts into bite-sized pieces and topping the bites with the sorbet.
