Doughnut Porn in NYC: Manhattan's Doughnut Plant

There's a reason doughnuts have been around since forever. More than cupcakes, muffins, or pastelitos, doughnuts are the ultimate breakfast indulgence. Just ask Homer Simpson -- or your local police officer (zing!).

Sadly, Miami is without a lot of options for those seeking anything beyond your average Krispy Kreme glazed or Dunkin' Donuts cruller. So while in New York City, I made a trip to Manhattan's famous bake-shop Shangri-la, Doughnut Plant. Is it worth the epic hype? Find out after the jump.
