Voodoo Doughnut Portland Oregon

Kenneth "Cat Daddy" Pogson and Tres Shannon have been friends for awhile. They always wanted to start a business together. Something that would fit into an extraordinary Portland business climate. Something fun, different, and one for the ages. After much searching under rocks, tequilas, and women's blouses, they found what they were looking for... doughnuts!!

There was only one problem, neither Cat Daddy nor Tres had ever made doughnuts before! They set out for the sunny Los Angeles suburb of Pico Rivera, California, where they met up with some doughnut masters, and learned about doughnuts from the ground up.

Learning when to throw the flour, proper handling of a rolling pin, the intricacies of an old fashion, the "flip," and countless other tricks of the trade were now in the hands, minds, and notebooks of Cat Daddy and Tres. They returned to Portland regaling the locals with tales of Brad Pitt eating one of their early maple bars, a Chick Hearn memorial documented on Japanese Television, featuring Voodoo Doughnuts, and the wild, wild, times of California -- artists, actors, washed up sports stars, old people, disillusioned tourists, and musicians. Ah California... Portland soon learned of these tricks and Voodoo Doughnut became the best tasting doughnuts in the world, chico!! 

After flying in some "Voodoo Oil" from down south, acquiring the nuts and bolts of their shop, the boys started tinkering around with their methods that soon became known locally, nationally, and worldwide. People have talked about Voodoo Doughnut in Tibet, on Easter Island, Japan has some stylish folks sporting the latest Voodoo underpants, and friends have shared a buttermilk bar in Tanzania. They're sure some corners of the globe have yet to be penetrated. Stay tuned!

Voodoo Doughnut Portland

You'd expect to find something like Voodoo Doughnut in the Bourbon district of New Orleans and even then it would get a few stares. But Voodoo Doughnut Portland is nothing to be scared of unless you're diabetic. In that case run.

Voodoo Doughnut is nothing short of a tourist attraction in itself and for that reason you'll hear local hipster foodies complain that Voodoo Doughnut is overhyped and not as good as its counterparts in a town packed with hole in the middle pastries. We call B.S. 

Yeah it's popular to tear down an eatery when it gets popular and some confuse the kitsch appeal as a tactic to make up for subpar food but Voodoo Doughnut does donuts right. Didn't you notice that they keep the "ugh" in the name? That may be their way of showing disgust to those donuteries that have neglected to stay true to one key ingredient in the original art of donut making - fun.

Voodoo Doughnut makes great donuts. There's no doubt. The variety is epic ranging from wonderfully ridiculous such as the Captain my Captain (topped of course with Captain Crunch) to perfectly pretentious with the Grape Ape (raised yeast doughnut w/vanilla frosting, grape dust, and lavender sprinkles). Like controversy? The offensive in a "but it's ok" manner Gay Bar is a long donut full of "luscious" cream with Fruit Loops lined across the top in a rainbow of color. The Maple Blazer Blunt was made for those with a taste for another popular Pacific Northwest commodity and please don't ask us to describe the Cock-n-Balls. Our favorite is the Memphis Mafia - Fried dough with banana chunks and cinnamon sugar covered in a glaze with chocolate frosting, peanut butter, peanuts and chocolate chips on top! Finally, no one should leave without at least one Voodoo Doughnut Voodoo Doll if not for photographic purposes alone. 

To all you hipster foodies that say Voodoo Doughnut is less than amazing, we'll be sure to bite a few limbs off of a Voodoo Doll rolled and raised in your honor. Donuts are supposed to be fun, douchebags.
