California’s Donut King

I was reading a lucky peach article about donuts and it made me remember reading this LA Times article when it first came out. It’s really stuck with me throughout the years and is something I think is important. The piece reveals a lot about the Cambodian-American community, the immigrant experience, and California small businesses (According to the Lucky Peach 90% of the 2,400 independent donut shops in California are Cambodian-owned). Growing up in the Bay Area and eating a ton of those donuts was amazing – I never had to experience the dry and stale dunkin donuts. Hope y’all enjoy the article and learn from it as much as I did.
