Doughnuts and chicken are such a fantastic pairing and one of the premier places in the DMV to get this combo is Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken. They have three locations, NOVA, DC, and LA. A day trip to NOVA had me less than five minutes from Astro and I knew I needed to check it out.
All of the doughnuts looked seriously amazing. My friend and I decided to split two starting with the Blueberry Lemon Thyme. Blueberry lemon is one of my favorite flavor combinations and this did not disappoint.
The other doughnut we tried was PB&J – it had a peanut butter icing with a jelly filling and it was topped with some chopped peanuts. Both of these doughnuts were light and packed with their respective flavors. I can’t wait to try the rest of their flavors.
We also ordered two pieces of the Fried Chicken and let me tell you, this was some of the juiciest chicken I’ve ever had. Each bite was utter perfection and I honestly couldn’t tell you if I liked the chicken or the doughnut more.
Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken is located at 2901 W Cary St, Falls Church

I’m just drooling over here. I need this in my life.
One of my favorite spots! They have a location in DC too. You can order ahead online so they reserve all the flavors you want to try!
