Spaghetti Eddie's and Donut Man

One of my besties from Milwaukee is working on a project at City of Hope in Monrovia, which gives me a chance to hang with her and try out some new restaurants in that part of the valley. This time we scored on some winners in Glendora.

We knew we'd hit Donut Man for a massive strawberry donut while in the 'hood, so we had to lay a base first. Spaghetti Eddie's on South Grand Avenue was a delicious discovery! We started with crispy artichoke hearts and this roasted red pepper and goat cheese salad with grilled asparagus, caramelized onions and roasted mushrooms. Wow!!

Next, we shared this Capriciossa pizza with mozzarella, rosemary ham, more artichoke hearts and mushrooms, and asiago cheese, plus an order of classic chicken parmesan with spaghetti. Each dish was amazingly flavorful, and the four dishes in combination hit all the taste sensations.

And then there's this Donut Man strawberry masterpiece! It is openly mocking the standard jelly-filled versions. This is actually spurring a new donut bracket - the fruit-stuffed donut! I'm thinking the peach version is the first contender. I also tried the Tiger Tail, a foot-plus-long twisted donut with chocolate and cinnamon woven tastily throughout. And, I can't wait to try the peanut butter and/or pumpkin seasonal treats. Oh, and they are 24/7. Who wants to make the Donut Man run with me?!
