Two locations for this restaurant, and we’ve seemed to find ourselves always in the Chinatown location. Of the many “Lao” restaurants in this mini-empire, this one is our favorite for very spicy, very tasty Szechuan cooking.

The Doughnut Vault

401 N Franklin St.

Just a single small door.

Just a single small door.

Besides our constant quest for delicious Asian food, we (or more specifically a couple of us, unnamed) are also on the lookout for the best doughnuts in the land. A recent trip took us to Chicago and a visit to the Doughnut Vault, a much hyped place and the kind that opens to a long line every morning and closes as soon as all the doughnuts are sold out, typically before noon! The verdict: pretty good, though not our very favorite ever!

The goods!

The goods!
