Fan Fan Doughnuts is a pastry shop on the corner of Franklin and Lafayette Ave in Bed-Stuy. It’s from the people behind La Newyorkina and the Dough doughnut chain, and they specialize in fan-fans (a mashup between long john doughnuts and eclairs) filled with things like guava and cheese. The rest of menu involves a rotating list of unusual flavors like raspberry-black currant or yuzu meringue. And while you’ll probably never find a plain old glazed donut, Fan Fan does offer some simpler options like glazed braids, vanilla bean, and Mexican chocolate.
