The most beloved doughnut at Back Door Donuts isn't technically a doughnut; it's a fritter of the apple variety and has caused pastry lovers to line up 100 deep until 1:00 am to satisfy their late-night hankering for sweet deep-fried perfection. Pastry Chef Rafi Jabri is originally from Jordan, trained in England, and today fills his kitchen with eager-to-learn pastry students from all over the world: Brazil, Turkmenistan, Mongolia, Albania, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Jamaica, and his homeland. The doughnuts are indeed ordered and picked up through the back door of a bakery kitchen (the front of the house daylights as a café and bakeshop) with a sign politely requesting, "no screaming, screeching, or yelling," and asks patrons to dispose of trash properly and not to eat all their doughnuts before they get home to the hungry people who sent them on a Back Door Donuts run in the first place.
