1) Sublime Doughnuts

Food and beverage writer Bob Townsend says, “Even if you don’t crave doughnuts, Sublime’s crazy-cool creations will capture your imagination and tingle your taste buds. Fried with care, glazed with the likes of dulce de leche, or filled with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, these are decadent delicacies for gourmands. The A-Town Cream, plumped with rich custard and covered in Callebaut Belgian dark chocolate, is fast becoming a local culinary legend.”

2) Sonoran-style hot dog at Bone Garden Cantina

3) The Mulligan at Gravity Pub

4) Original glazed at Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

5) Chili dog at the Varsity
