Eaten The Apple Fritter From Bob's Donut And Pastry Shop

Happy Mardi Gras!

I like apple fritters.  They are sweet tasty treats of doughy goodness.  Unfortunately, they just aren’t very good for you, but because today is
Fat Tuesday, I purposely scheduled to have this very decadent food for dessert.  The apple fritter from Bob’s Donut and Pastry Shop is number 78 on the 7x7 Big Eat 2011: 100 Things To Try Before You Die in San Francisco.

I went to pick up the fritters after work tonight.  It’s on Polk Street, between Sacramento and Clay.  I didn’t have much trouble finding parking, which was surprising considering how popular this area of town is.  I parked about a block away and walked over.

They display a lot of the donuts in the front window.


Bob’s carries a giant donut I wanted to order, but they had run out before I got there.  I heard they bake during the night (after midnight), and that’s the best time to get what you want.  Another important thing to note is that they accept cash only.

I bought a few donuts and fritters and took them home for later consumption.  After dinner tonight, we busted out the donuts and fritters.

I can see why people really enjoy this.  It’s got a very nice crunch on the outside, and the soft texture on the inside complements it very well.  It has an appropriate amount of cinnamon blended with its apple flavor.  It was delicious when enjoyed with a nice glass of milk (no need to
drink a gallon).  I enjoyed the plain glazed donut as well.

I would recommend trying this.  It has great flavor, is inexpensive, and is available 24 hours a day (in case my friends that drink need a 3 am snack after a Polk Street pub crawl in the future).  The apple fritter costs $1.45, and their donuts are 75 cents.  I’m not sure what it’s like at other times but it also wasn’t crowded at all and the woman that was there was very nice to me.  She even threw in an extra glazed donut for free.

Thank you to J for organizing, K for getting the milk, and M for getting dinner tonight.

I hope you all had a great Mardi Gras because now it’s time for Lent.
