The side of this gleaming Airstream reads: “Big. Fat. Donuts.” So when you need a little something to boost your blood sugar, this south Austin sweet spot will do the trick. The 25-plus types of doughnuts at Gourdough’s are fried to order and emerge from the truck piping hot. If you’re a chocoholic, order the Black Out, an over-the-top combo of brownie batter, fudge icing, and chocolate-covered brownie bites. A fruit lover? Go with the Miss Shortcake, a simple funnel-like hole drenched in cream cheese icing and fresh-cut strawberries. Experimental? Try Slow Burn, a combo of habanero pepper jelly with a topping of cream cheese.
1219 South Lamar Blvd., gourdoughs.com, $4.25 per doughnut (add $1 each for meat or ice cream)
