$20 White Truffle Doughnut Could Possibly Dethrone the Cronut


Just when you thought donuts couldn’t get more insane than being stuffed with S’mores a White Truffle Doughnut comes along and changes the game all over again.

Fancier than a cronut and significantly more expensive at $20 a pop, the yeast based doughnut is literally dripping in white truffle syrup, three grams white truffle shavings, fleur del sel and Valrona chocolate shavings. The doughnut is the result of a collaboration between Do-Rite chefs and Rodrick Markus, owner of Lakerview’s Rare Tea Cellar made it’s Chicago debut on Wednesday, December 11. Chef Harris D’Antignac has high expectations for his new creation, “Hopefully we’ve got ourselves the next cronut.”

The grandiose doughnut might not be for everyone which is why it’s being promoted more as a luxury treat than standard menu addition but so far customer reactions on Twitter have been nothing but positive.

The White Truffle Doughnut is only available during truffle season which gives gourmands until about mid-January to get themselves to Chicago to try the decadent pastry but plan on calling ahead to guarantee yourself one.
