Gourdough’s began as the donut trailer dream of Paula Samford and Ryan Palmer on South Lamar, frequented by folks craving funky donuts with unexpected ingredient combinations. The trailer did so well (and was even loved by the Travel Channel’s infamous Anthony Bourdain) that they opened a brick-and-mortar version of their donut haven last Halloween–Gourdough’s Public House–featuring its beloved donuts, but also incorporating full-on donut-infused entrees and specialty cocktails. Like its historic public house predecessors, Gourdough’s Public House strives to connect its patrons in the spirit of funk-laced starch, local brews and plenty of booze. Salty, savory, or sweet, the Public House celebrates the delightful taste of sin.
Weekend Brunch at Gourdough’s Public House
Cayenne salted rim, with olives and bacon.
Lamar Street Lemonade
Tito’s, fresh lemon, fresh seasonal berries, served with an effervescent spritz of Maine Root ginger beer.
Not to be confused with Ron Jeremy. Behold, the legendary donut burger (I’ve only had it twice). Angus beef cooked to order, bacon, fried egg, two slices of American cheese, cilantro, guacamole, sliced tomato & mayonnaise.
Similar to my favorite donut at Gourdough’s, the Mother Clucker, but dirtier. Piping hot donut topped with hand-battered fried chicken, honey butter and maple syrup.
