The Donunt Den

I hope everybody is having a happy Lent and congratulations to anyone who is on Spring Break, including moi. For those of you who don’t know Sunday does not count for Lent, so this past Sunday, I scoped out a donut place that could rival Krispy Kreme.

So I went to the place in the Heart of Green Hills called the Donut Den. This is a family owned restaurant and it is the only one they own.  They sell coffee products as well.

The donuts and other bakery items are made freshly everyday. When I went into the dinner it was busy, which is always a good sign. The donuts were really good, but it wasn’t Krispy Kreme, especially when their donuts are freshly made. Nevertheless, their iced-coffee was amazing.

I would still try it, because I am definitely going back a second time. What wins over all is great customer service. Plus it was cheaper and the coffee is  then Krispy Kreme. I am a coffee fanatic, that was more important to me than the donuts. Also, if you have a very sweet tooth this place definitely is for you.

I give this place a 2.8 out of five.


Kebab Gyros Brentwood

I personally love food. The problem with restaurants is that the food is usually bland or it’s missing an ingredient. So when I find a restaurant that the seasonings are just perfect, full of flavor, and different I just have to talk about it. The best Gyro place that I have tasted is Kebab Gyro in Brentwood on Old Hickory Blvd. It’s right next to a great Bakery (which I will talk about that later) and behind Cinco de Mayo.

It is family owned. The man that was helping me knew it was my first time there and was extra nice to me. He ordered what I think I would like for me, he was 100% right. When your there ask for cucumber sauce over your rice. He made me try that and it was amazing.

I also loved it because the whole family is Christian. If your short some change, they will help you out, but please don’t take advantage of them. Nice Persian family period.

Go. You will enjoy your experience!
