Travels with Siobhan: DC's Donut Truck

Mama's Donut Bites
I don't hide my love of doughnuts, especially when they are fresh and piping hot. And while I haven't been to the new doughnut trucks in New York--but holy Moses, you will find me at Carpe Donut repeatedly during the Vendys--I did seek out the Northern Virginia/DC doughnut truck making the rounds.

One thing Northern Virginia has in spades are Saturday morning farmers markets. Having visited the Reston one many times, I decided to take a trip to the next town over, Vienna, to see their offering. It's a bit smaller, but it has Mama's Donut Bites. As you can see from the window, the mini doughnuts go from $3 for 6 to $10 for 26, all in the chosen flavor of the day. Everything's made on the truck, almost à la minute. I spotted mine coming out of the oil seconds before I ordered, watched them being coated with sweet cinnamon sugar and placed into a paper bag that could easily hold them until after I was done shopping, but we all know that wasn't going to happen. Fresh, hot, and delicious. We totally need one of these at the McCarren Greenmarket!

Follow Mama's Donut Bites on Twitter and Facebook--they are completely worth seeking out.
