The Donut Man Wins L.A's Iconic Dish Trophy For Their Strawberry Donuts

The Donut Man

Donut Man owners Jim and Miyoko Nakano hold their extremely impressive L.A's Iconic Dish statue in front of their store.

L.A.'s Iconic Dish was a fiercely contested battle: a 16-contestant charge to the foodie finish line, with all kinds of twists and surprises along the way.

Many thought that a sandwich would reign supreme, and indeed, both Philippe's and Langer's gave a strong showing. But in the end, L.A. voted with its sweet tooth. Come with us on a visit to the legendary Glendora storefront.
