The Donut Man, a.k.a. Jim Nakano, has been making doughnuts since 1972 to satisfy his wife Miyoko's craving for fresh, hot doughnuts. His most famous concoction is his fresh strawberry-stuffed doughnut, generally available February through June. But for just a few weeks each summer -- meaning now till mid-September -- the strawberry filling is replaced with fresh peaches in a light sugar syrup. Stuffed into a thin glazed donut shell, crispy on the outside and plushy on the inside, the sliced peaches burst with fragrant, oozy flavor. These doughnuts ($3.25) are served with a fork, but Nakano recommends they be eaten "like a hamburger." Which works just fine as long as you grab a huge stack of napkins.
And, you might want to grab another flavor of doughnut as a chaser (most run around $1). Nakano has really mastered the art of doughnutry and it's worth trying some of his other offerings, which include nearly foot-long maple bars, Bavarian creams, jelly-filled (lemon or raspberry), chocolate glazed, and crumb. The sugar-and-dough rush is sure to put a sticky smile on your face.
Nakano himself has eaten two of his own doughnuts a day for the last 40 years, and he is as jolly as ol' St. Nick.
