Lucky Devil Doughnuts launches today in West Seattle

“We like to think that we’re merging the ‘foodie’ with the ‘junk-foodie’ in the most delicious and irresistible way possible.”

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 08, 2012

Lucky Devil Doughnut Co. (http://www.luckydevildoughnuts.com) is the latest-and-greatest mobile eatery to grace the streets of Seattle, and they’ll be celebrating in style by giving away a free T-shirt with the purchase a dozen doughnuts on its opening day, today, in West Seattle at Uptown Espresso at California and Edmonds.

Lucky Devil’s consistently sinful signature doughnut is a treat called the “malasada,” which originated in Portugal. Prepared hot and fresh to order, these fried confections have been perfected from a 100-year-old yeast dough recipe that is lighter, more “eggy” and slightly sweeter than that of most doughnuts. Traditionally topped with granulated sugar, this “un-holey” Lucky Devil incarnation is square in shape.

Meaning “light-roasted,” mal-assada arose from the need to use up all the lard or butter and sugar in a Catholic Portuguese household prior to the start of Lent and its associated fasting. In 1878, emigrant laborers from Madeira and the Azores transported this tradition halfway around the world to the sugar plantations of Hawaii, where its popularity took hold: To this day, the religious holiday of Shrove Tuesday (also called Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras and, in Portuguese, Terça-feira Gorda) is known as Malasada Day in the Hawaiian Islands.

In addition to the signature, hot-n-fresh malasada, the Lucky Devil food truck will feature 5 other doughnut varieties, 10 daily specials and “Hole-y Rollers,” their version of the doughnut hole. Offerings are served up with a generous helping of humor, as demonstrated by the long list of cleverly named rotating specials including:

o    POG – Orange filled doughnut with Guava and Passion frosting

o    Hawaiian Host – Hawaiian Chocolate and Mack Nut crusted doughnut with a caramel drizzle

o    Babe the Blu Ox – Mapel bar with bacon

o    The King — Peanut butter-glazed bar topped with a halved banana slice

o    Bangkok Dangerous — Savory vanilla doughnut with Sriracha-and-sweet-chili glaze

o    Cherry Bomb — Cherry cake with cherry glaze

o    Evan Dando — Lemon-filled vanilla round with lemon glaze

o    Moonwalker — Marshmallow-dipped round topped with crushed Oreos and an American flag

o    Dogleg Left — Chocolate doughnut with mint icing and a vanilla doughnut hole

o    Surfer’s Breakfast — A scrambled egg with SPAM sandwiched between two glazed or plain doughnuts

o    The Big Dipper — A Texas-style one-pounder, glazed, no exceptions

o    Marie Antoinette — Vanilla French pastry cream-filled round, dusted with powdered sugar

o    Fred and Barney — White-iced round dipped in Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles

o    Fool’s Gold — Grape jelly-filled 2x bar with peanut butter icing topped with bacon

o    The Man in Black — 70% cocoa icing on a chocolate doughnut topped with a morsel of 70% chocolate

o    Al Roca — Vanilla round dipped in chocolate and almonds with caramel drizzle

o    The Lucky Devil — Chocolate Cake doughnut dipped in ghost chili chocolate glaze, with Cherry Red Drizzle

o    RED EYE — Vanilla cake doughnut with coffee icing dusted in espresso powder

o    Dolly Parton — Two cream-filled, cherry-iced doughnuts, each topped with a cherry

o    Hole-y Rollers — Doughnut holes that can be tossed with a sweet or savory choice of sugar, cinnamon sugar, powdered sugar, cocoa, nacho cheese, sour cream and onion, zesty dill, or buttermilk ranch

Sin a Little or Sin a Lot Prices:

o    $1.00 for plain or basic flavors and malasadas

o    $2.00 for bars and fills

o    $4 for gourmet flavors (which are larger)

o    $5 for ½ dozen

o    $10 for a dozen

Schedule:

Opening day is Tuesday, May 8, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Uptown Espresso in West Seattle, at the corner of California and Edmonds.

Because no doughnut experience is complete without caffeine, they’ll be pouring local favorite Lighthouse Roasters drip coffee to pair with their sinful treats.

Lucky Devil further ups the ante by providing the chance to instantly win tasty prizes. Whatever their purchase, customers are invited to look under their box, bag or cup, and if they find the number 777 “The Number of the Yeast,” they will receive a certificate for a single doughnut of their choice on the house.

Owner and founder Josh Goldman spent ten years in Hawaii as a child, a tenure that engendered his life-long love of malasadas and led to the Lucky Devil Doughnut Co. concept.

Goldman, a chef, got his start with Thierry Rautureau at Rovers 20 years ago. He began as a dishwasher and moved up to line cook, which inspired him to attend the C.I.A. Upon receiving certification, he returned and worked for Tom Douglas at Etta’s Seafood, and includes Ray’s Boathouse, Nordstrom Café, City Catering and the Rainier Club on his resume.

“Luck is part of who we are,” says Goldman,“ and we want to pass that on to our customers. In a world of mass-produced confections, we’re here to rise to the occasion and make, hot, fresh, made-to-order couture doughnuts guaranteed to bring a smile to your face, whatever the weather, whatever kind of day you may be having. We like to think that we’re merging the ‘foodie’ with the ‘junk-foodie’ in the most delicious and irresistible way possible.”

We very much appreciate all the help you have given us to get equipment lined up for this project as we couldn't have done it without you. Please thank your men for us.

Not only is your web site professional and organized, the salesmen I have dealt with are superb! They are polite, helpful and informed. When I am ready to start my own bakery I will probably buy most, if not all of my equipment through your company. The new web site looks more organized and offers more on the home page. I was happy enough with the old site but as I look more closely I see ways that it has been improved. Thanks so much for all your help!

So, thank you again for providing such excellent customer service. Sincerely, Mariah K. Boston -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was originally kind of skeptical in purchasing a Hobart L800 mixer from an internet company but I was pleasantly surprised how well everything went from the original order, to delivery, to final installation, and to actual usage. Originally, I had trouble getting the mixer started because of all the built in safety features which I was not familiar with. However, Rick Evans helped me understand how this mixer worked and we eventually got the mixer to operate. He stayed on the phone with me until the mixer was working. If I need anymore restaurant equipment, I will buy it from bakeryequipment.com. Thank you very much. Frank LaBarba Nick's Pizza Newburyport, Mass. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Bakery Equipment.com has help my wife and I to realize our dream of opening and operating a small cafe and Pizzeria in Alaska. Darren helped me to figure out what I really needed for equipment, the shipping quote was done in less than a day, and equipment arrived right when promised. Our business is located in bush Alaska and is only accessible only by boat or plane. Darren and BE.com were able to deal with these logistical hurdles and get our deck oven, woodblock table, and mixer up here with out any problems at all. Plus their prices could not be beat.

Doug -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hello my name is Marcella Norris and with my partner Maria A. Serafino we just ordered a deck oven from your Company. I just would like to express my appreciation for the help that we received from one of your Representative his name is Darren and he lives in Canada.

You have a customer for life! - Lisa -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear Darren, We got the Master-Bilt Reach-in Cooler today. I'm going through shippers and matching them to our orders, but it looks like most everything is here. We opened up the Oven box to double-check for any damage as it does have glass front doors. Everything looks fine and the people at Deluxe in Florida called me to remind me if I found any shipping damage to send it back and they would send a new one! That 4 rack oven looks really nice. Best regards, Tom Smith Serious Donut Co -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Just a quick note to say thanks for your prompt response to our dilemma with the display case. Your quick attention has guaranteed referrals from me in regards to equipment purchased through Bakeryequipment.com. We passed our Health Dept. inspection with flying colors and are open for business! Thanks again. Here's to a happy holiday season and a prosperous new year. -Daniel R. Spencer -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hi Darren, This is a belated note to say thank you for sending those timers. Not only that, they came with a great wiring diagram and the proper plates to modify the size of the openings. Our guy was very pleased with the function of these new ones and, as they are solid state, he expects that they will last a long time. Because of your repair man’s previous experience with Esmachs, you were able to furnish us with something that is even better than the original equipment. You should also know that our repair man showed me the old timers and there were a few different parts of each one that were broken beyond repair, so this was quite necessary. You have made us a very happy customer once again and you’ll be our first choice when I’m looking for equipment in the future… and I have recommended you to two other bakers just in the last few weeks. Thanks, Randy George Red Hen Baking Co. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
