With award season approaching, Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is making glittering gold red velvet doughnuts that are a perfect treat for your awards show viewing party. They are available for $5 each, and must order 24 hours in advance online or by phone.
I was invited to try one of these red velvet cake doughnuts with a edible glittery gold glaze. During Oscars weekend these special doughnuts will be available at the restaurant.
For Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 4, Astro’s is offering a game day package, which includes six football shaped Boston cream doughnuts and 24 honey sriracha or Korean barbecue wings for $59.95.
The individual football-shaped doughnuts are $3.50. Pre-order starts Jan. 29 for pickup or delivery on Super Bowl Sunday. They will also be available in the restaurant only on Super Bowl Sunday.
While I was there I tried a few of the fried chicken sandwiches, kimchi cole slaw and tater tots. The fried chicken on a buttermilk biscuit with flecks of Cheddar cheese is pure comfort food.
Astro doughnuts & fried chicken is located at 516 W. Sixth St. Los Angeles, CA. (213)622-7876. There is another location in Washington D.C.
