(fōnuts) 8104 W 3rd. St Los Angeles

So today is "Fat Tuesday". In Honolulu, most people associate Fat Tuesday with picking up/eating some malasada from Leonard's Bakery or some prefer Champion Bakery. I am one of those who probably prefer  Champion Bakery.

Anyway, I'm not in Honolulu and I am still in Los Angeles so I won't be going to either of those places. Aside from just being away from Honolulu, I am also unable to eat because I'm having some medical things done today. If I was able to eat, I thought I would substitute the malasada binge with something local to this area of Los Angeles that I am at. Well, by local, I mean it's from a local bakery and not necessary a local type of food. The place I would chose to go to is called (fōnuts). I could walk there from where I am in about 15 minutes because it is right down the street from here.

Well why is it called "(fōnuts)" and what is it? Click the link to see their website for the full explanation, but it's a donut that isn't fried. They are all baked using techniques that result in a delicious flavor and texture. Sure these could be just cakes baked in the ring shapes, but I'm sure if you use a regular cake mix and try to bake it in the shape of a donut, it just won't be the same.

Here is what I have been able to try so far... yes, I enjoyed them all and would like to try more flavors! :)
My first time I tried a savory Chorizo & Cheddar Cheese for "lunch"
followed by a Strawberry Milk (fōnuts) for dessert. 

The 2nd visit I had a Rosemary & Olive Oil (fōnuts) for lunch.

Next I tried a Gluten Free & Vegan (I think) Lemon (fōnuts). I tastes good.
I can tell it is a GF because the consistency is slightly dense & moist.
The last one (so far) that I've tried is the Vanilla Cream filled (fōnuts).
Oh this was way better than any malasada and I don't care for
the filled type malasada either. This was like a delicate pastry in the
shape of a donut. Yum!
Well, that's what I'd eat if I could eat anything on this Fat Tuesday. If you're around Beverly Hills/West Hollywood, you may want to check out (fōnuts) if you're craving a snack.

Back at the Coffee Commissary on N Fairfax, cofficing in LA.

Cofficing at Coffee Commissary
I'm in Los Angeles again to get some things done. While I'm here, I'm still keeping up with Honolulu Real Estate activity so I don't lose track of what is going on back at work/home.

I was surprised to see when I decided to post about this, my most recent blog post was about my first time at Coffee Commissary! Gee, what have I been doing all this time. I better post some stuff up, starting with this.

One of the great things about this place is that it has a lot of great seating inside and out on the patio. The patio seating is great during the current, cool weather conditions.

Some of the outdoor seating.
A lot of people walk here and enjoy coffee with their dogs. :)
I don't feel so odd walking in LA when arriving here thanks to that.
Everyone keeps saying, "Nobody walks in LA." ;)

Here is my last post about Coffee Commissary that happens to be my last post also.


Coffee at the Coffee Commissary on Fairfax in Los Angeles

"The last coffee spot that I was able to check out during my few days in Los Angeles is called Coffee Commissary.  I was surprised that this coffee shop was actually the closest place to the hotel I was staying at..."
