The Story:

Everyone loves a good donut. I remember as a child visiting Dunkin’ Donuts or Winchels and craving something, anything, with Boston creme filling. I couldn’t get enough of that. These days, the donut has transformed into something truly unique and so have the purveyors. Donut-O-Rama is Portland’s first full service donut cart.

Greg Slauson opened Donut-O-Rama a couple of months ago in the same cart that housed Cool Harry’s Frozen Yogurt the past summer. A great use of the cart during these winter months when not too many people are seeking out cold treats. Greg has eaten donuts from many different vendors and has a goal to exceed everyone’s expectations for his sweet treats.

The donuts at Donut-O-Rama range from raised donuts to cake donuts to donuts with bacon atop. You can’t have a donut in Portland without adding bacon can you? But it isn’t all about the crazy donuts, it is about the art of the donut and the craft. A simple glazed donut from Greg is truly a treat – especially in the morning with a hot cup of coffee. One of the stars at Donut-O-Rama is the crème brulee donut, a cream filled pouch covered with sugar which is then melted with a blow-torch to create a hard crust which melts in your mouth.

Donut-O-Rama is a great new option for a morning sweet along with your coffee. Greg continues to come out with new flavors and great creations – the most recent being an energy donut made with Viso energy drink which contains about 60mg of caffeine. That will get your day started! Let Greg know Food Carts Portland sent ya.

  2. Greg and Amanda are now serving beignets and creme brulee donuts at SW 3rd and Ash in a very nondescript little cart just southeast of the intersection. Greg was kind enough to let me sample one of his freshly made beignets (still warm!) once I mentioned I had just returned from NOLA and had sampled Cafe du Monde’s version.

    My beignet was just a bit chewy, but nice and puffy, and the sample had no perceptible aftertaste from the cooking oil. So, pretty much a genuine knockoff, if not quite the real thing. At $2 each, they are a little spendy, but a dozen for $12 is a good deal.

    Not sure how Greg will do with such a limited menu, but go check this out and let’s keep the deep-frier cooking.
