Taipei City, Taiwan

Nope! There's no typo here! Voodoo Doughnut, the Portland cult favorite, has made its way over the Pacific and landed in Taipei, Taiwan. Having visited the original location, I couldn't help but be a bit curious about how the American classic would translate in a new environment. They definitely got the decor down with their quirky art and fun colors. That being said, the donuts just didn't do it for me. They were far drier and less flavorful than their Portland counterparts. While I get that the Taiwanese audience is different, I still think a doughnut should feel indulgent, rich, and sweet. Honestly, if you're looking for a donut in Taipei, you might as well grab Krispy Kreme or Mr. Donut. You'll also save yourself from disappointment (and from spending an arm and a leg on donuts)!
