Hucks: Beware The Donut Burger

Restaurant reviewer Patrick Jacobs claims he ate a donut burger after hours from an unnamed food truck in downtown Coeur d’Alene on Saturday, July 21. You read that right – a donut burger. Patrick described it in his Get Out! North Idaho blog the next day: “The glazed Krispy Kreme bun … was toothsome and sweet. The beef patty was grilled to a nice char on the outside but was meaty-rich and greasy-hot inside. Smoky crisp bacon strips and a slice of tangy cheddar finished out the cast of players in the Donut Burger Show, and no condiments were involved, obviously. Only a loon would ruin this perfect (and perfectly fattening) collision of sweet vs. umami flavors with ketchup.” Patrick said he spotted the white truck in that parking lot across from Cricket’s, next to the buffalo. Huckleberries has seen the buffalo statue. But a mystery truck offering donut burgers? That’s hard to swallow, even though Patrick did/DFO, SR Huckleberries. More here.

Question: What is the most fattening thing you've ever eaten at one sitting?

OTV Review: Donut Burgers!

Anyway, I had already been done with my shift for an hour or so and was getting just a skosh tipsy wipsy and extremely tummy-rumbly.  Suddenly, a figure emerged at me from out of the smoky darkness of the bar, carrying an armload of white Styrofoam to-go boxes.  It was one of my most beloved regulars. “Hungry? You’ll never guess what I found at this food truck down on Sherman.” I cracked open one of the boxes, not totally sure what to expect, and there it was, something I’d only ever heard of as a gluttonous internet food meme, something I was terrified of and delighted by simultaneously at the same time, something enough to make Paula Deen’s boobs bounce excitedly at the possibility of adding new calories to their bodacious bounty. It gleamed in front of me, reflecting the colored lights of the dance floor like a golden, sugary disco ball. Behold: the Glazed Donut Burger/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here.

Question: Are you kidding me?
