Doughnuts for dinner? The culinary geniuses at Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken make this dream a reality with signature fried chicken sandwiches like the Old Bay All Day. Its base is a savory doughnut dusted with Old Bay seasoning. The chef halves and stuffs said doughnut with a fried chicken breast, crispy bacon, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and a smattering of sriracha mayo.
This innovative creation really exemplifies the type of creativity you can expect at Astro all day long, starting with its distinctly sweet morning doughnuts. Many of them are made-to-order, so they’re served hot from the fryer—like the vanilla glazed and cinnamon-sugar cake doughnuts. The creme brulee doughnut has been ranked as one of the best in the entire city of Washington, D.C., so it’s a must-try. If you want something that’s both sweet and savory, opt for a maple-bacon or a PB&J doughnut instead. Or simply pair one of the sweet doughnuts with a few pieces of the equally impressive fried chicken. You can even skip the doughnuts if you’re more of a cookie person—the Double Chocolate Chip and Cake Batter Funfetti confections from Satellite Cookies are always a hit.
