Seattle Has A “Donut Lab” That Custom-Makes Tropical Malasadas For Cheap

They're only $30 for a dozen. 😋
Best Seattle Donuts Include $30 A Dozen Tropical Malasadas From The Donut Lab

Emerald City loves its confections. The city even has an underground donut tour to celebrate its famed, fried rings. If you've been meaning to try out some of the best Seattle donuts to see what the delicious fuss is about, you're in for a tasty treat: This spot dishes out custom-made malasadas that'll have you saying Mahalo for days! 

Handcrafted by The Donut Lab Seattle, malasadas are a Portuguese delicacy — a crispy, sugary dough stuffed with yummy fillings. You can get them for only $30 a dozen from this spot.

And boy, will the menu remind you of Hawaii where this fluffy dessert is super popular. 

On their list, that looks like a periodic table, we spotted classic flavors like vanilla custard, cinnamon sugar, and Nutella.

They also have exotic tastes like ube, taro, guava, lychee, durian, pandan, s'mores, and coconutty haupia. And last month, they even launched a new taste that has us drooling: passion orange guava. 

If you like a slight crunch to your dessert, you can pick their "cereal milk" versions that come stuffed with everything from fruity peddles to cocoa puffs and cinnamon toast crunch! 

If you're tempted enough, here's how to get your hands on a box: You can fill out an order form here, you'll need to give them a two-day advance notice so your sweets can be baked fresh.

Since it's hard to pick a single bite, you can even mix up two flavors for $35, a dozen. 

They don't have a physical store (yet), but you can have it delivered to you for an additional cost of $5 to $25 depending on where in Washington you live.

You can also arrange to pick it up after placing the order, and they take payments in cash, Venmo, or through PayPal. 

While there's everything from a donut tour to $6 pizza slices larger than your face in Seattle, if you're a foodie that likes your fare sweet, these tropical treats are the closest you'll come to taking a vacation asap.
