One of the city’s most popular doughnut makers (with the lines out the door to prove it), Pip’s Original is known for its mini doughnuts, which it fries to order, as any self-respecting mini-doughnut maker should, and in the video below, you can watch a full day of doughnuts being made in 30 seconds. Owner Nate Snell estimates the video shows around 5500 doughnuts over the course of eight hours. Behold the wonder of fried-mini-doughnut mass production.
Pip’s Original is located at 4759 NE Fremont St. and operates daily, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Don’t want to make the trek to Northeast to see what the fuss is all about? Snell tells Eater the mobile, food truck version of Pip’s will be at the Oregon Zoo’s ZooLights, on select dates this year. It’ll be frying weekends through January 1, 2017.
