As an end to The Embarkiste’s Savannah Series (proceeded by her Shopping and Dining Guide) she has 72-hours to paint the town red and accepts the challenge with a pin-pointed schedule and plenty of vacant slots for spontaneity. Once she jets into the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and steps out amidst the hot breeze, she’s ready to be charioted throughout the marsh-like low country and transported through time a century or two ago.
Multiple elements compose a successful feast. Of course, what’s à la carte is primarily the focus, but one must also consider the atmosphere, the company, the conversation, and an underlying element of magic starting from the first sip to the last bite. Here, The Embarkiste strolls around historic Savannah, Georgia and invites readers to dine alongside in a palated list of favourite eateries where mint juleps rule and international fare finds itself at the local table.
Oh heavenly globes of powdered sugar, fresh cream, and melt-in-your mouth gooeyness. The Embarkiste thanks her lucky stars for the delightful gift of doughnuts and loves this sweet treat whilst embarking (though she is careful not to dangerously indulge near her nest.) Doughnuts are the new “black” with plentiful pop-ups springing up around every corner. She ponders what makes the experience so euphoric; perhaps its their candy-coated appearance, or maybe so the fluffiness awaiting inside. Whatever the magic trick, she’s mesmerized. Local word and reference sites, such as Thrillist, points her pointy heels in the direction of circular goodness.
Here, The Embarkiste shares her doughy treasures from around the globe and invites the world to share their favourites in the comment section.
Ask around Londontown for a good time / good eats scene stealer and there’s a high chance Pizza East will be the response on more than one’s tastebuds.

As one of The Embarkiste’s favourite Friday night gastronomic pastimes, she highlights all the aromas and charms this vibrant locale cooks up.
