This Cheesy Donut Sandwich Is Not For The Weak Of Heart

Donuts have come a long way from the fluffy little dessert that capped off your meal and indulged your sweet tooth. If done right, a donut can be the main course, and boy has it been done right by D.R.E.A.M. Donut Truck.

Feast your eyes on the Cheesy Sujuk Sausage Donut, exclusively available at OOZEFEST in Santa Ana, CA.

The Middle Eastern-inspired dish consists of a glazed donut base, stuffed to the max with Armenian string cheese, and a spicy sausage called Sujuk. It’s then pressed down, damn near grilled, revealing a gooey cheese pull that needs an NC-17 rating for unrelenting food porn.

“The donut was inspired by traditional Armenian breakfast sides that we grew up eating,” D.R.E.A.M.’s owner Vahe Kalli said.

D.R.E.A.M. Donut truck is fairly new to the food truck game, but it’s already making noise in the Los Angeles food scene, collaborating here with local favorite California Donuts to make this mobile donut dream happen.

“The truck idea came from a shirt design I did several years ago. After the design was complete, we collaborated with California Donuts to release it and it was a hit,” Kalli said.

D.R.E.A.M. stands for Donuts Rule Everything Around Me, which is in reference to the famous Wu-Tang Clan anthem “C.R.E.A.M.” It makes sense, because these donuts are a dream.
