Forget waffles, chicken and doughnuts are the real deal.
Prepare your tastebuds and get out your cameras. Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken has some of the coolest looking and most delicious tasting doughnuts in town. Oh, and it also has fried chicken. Whaaat? That’s right, this place has doughnuts and chicken and they’re not sold separately. (Well… actually they are if you prefer it that way. But I still think you should try them together)
Astro Doughnut is now open with new safety guidelines in place.
Astro Doughnuts is definitely winning at the Instagram foodie game with its awesome square doughnuts, but I must admit their flavors are pretty freaking amazing as well. Regular ones at their D.C. store include crunchy crème brûleé, PB&J, vanilla glaze and maple bacon. And if those weren’t enough to satisfy your sweet craving, they also have special flavors like moon pie, chocolate mud pie, tropical crunch and dulce de leche. And if you’re willing to drive for only 20 minutes you can get even more awesome cake-based doughnuts at their Falls Church, VA spot. I think their Nutella cake doughnut is well worth the drive, don’t you? Astro Doughnuts also has seasonal flavors and themed doughnuts so make sure to follow them on Instagram to keep up with these.
The real showstopper, however, is their doughnut bun fried chicken sandwich. This beauty puts old-school chicken and waffles to shame. Made with a savory doughnut bun, the sandwich can be built to suit your tastes. First choose your bun, either plain savory or seasoned with Old Bay (I know. Mind-blown!), then choose a sauce and add-ons such as siracha mayo, honey-mustard, pickles, jalapeños, cheese or bacon. You can also get an optional side of coleslaw, tater tots or cheddar biscuits.
Next time you have a sweet craving or a savory one or just can’t decide what you want, why not head over to Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken and get your fix of both? And while you’re at it, go ahead and bless your Instagram followers with a picture of these squared doughnuts!
