11300 Conant St., Hamtramck; 313-368-9214
This family doughnut shop has been on the corner of Caniff and Conant for 32 years, the last five of them owned by a Yemeni family. The owner says he still keeps the old classic recipes on the menu, such as the Romanian burek, another example of Hamtramck's powerful polyculturalism. But you don't need a degree in anthropology to appreciate what they box up for you. Plus the price is right: a dozen doughnuts for less than $8, all of them wonderful.
