I recently paid a visit to Esperantos, 6 1/2 Caroline Street for a delicious, coconutty, creamy curry, and I had one, which I enjoyed very much, as usual. However, I also discovered a new “love”: Doughboys! And now mourn the many that I haven’t had over the years!
This delicious concoction of cream cheese, chicken, and savory spices, with it’s chewy, doughy outside, is sublime. Maybe not in the healthfood category, but hey, moderation is the key, right?
Taking “fast food” to a new level, the Doughboy was first created by Skidmore College Psychology Professor Sheldon Solomon back in his college days (he is still part owner together with partner Will Pouch). The Doughboy far outsells the restaurant’s other delicious international offerings, and is snapped up by the hundreds on a busy night. It’s unique packaging allows it to be carried out and consumed quite handily.
A favorite for students with late-night munchies (Esperantos stays open on until 4:00am! on weekends; 2:00am weeknights), it’s well worth it to “grab and go” a few of these uniquely Saratoga savories. That is, if there’s any on hand; they sell out almost as quickly as they make them!
Make sure you pop into Esperantos, 6 1/2 Caroline Street, downtown to find out why!
