Donut Review: The 'Mother Clucker'

Anywhere donuts and beer are served under the same roof is my idea of heaven on earth. 


Gourdough's Public House in Austin, Tx, delivers every unimaginable flavor combination a doughnut-lover could dream of. 

Inside the low lit restaurant/bar on S. Lamar, my best friend Amber and I sat at a high-top table and examined our menu options with precision. 

This is a place where the kitchen matches dozens of traditional dinner items with arguably the most popular breakfast food in America. 

While everything looked too delicious to deny, I was there for one item in particular: The Mother Clucker

The combination of deep-fried chicken atop a sugar-glazed doughnut was something I had never seen paired together, and I couldn't imagine the dish falling short of "the best doughnut I've ever had." 

The honey-buttered entree did not disappoint. In fact, it left me especially full for the remainder of the evening. That may have had to do, in part, with our decision to devour an entire plate of garlic parmesan doughnut holes before our main course. 

I'm not one to frequent a niche place like Gourdough's more than once, but I think I'll have to make an exception in this case. One glance at their menu (below), and I bet you'll understand why...  

Gourdough's garlic doughnut holes. Carb euphoria!

Life is better when you have girlfriends who take you on Saturday night dates to doughnut shops.
