The owner of Dooby’s is taking his doughnuts on a pop-up tour across Baltimore before opening his own shop in April.
Phil Han is opening Sundays Bakehouse, a doughnut shop, on 36th Street in Hampden. He declined to give the exact address.
Pastry chef Courtney Fix, previously of B Doughnut in Hampden and Cunningham’s in Towson, will head the kitchen.
Sample flavors from Sundays Bakehouse now are available on a limited basis at Dooby’s in Mount Vernon from Wednesday through Sunday. And Han will be partnering with friends in the industry to host doughnut pop-ups at various restaurants that pair sweet and savory doughnuts with their menus.
The pop-ups began this weekend with an event at R. House, where Sundays Bakehouse partnered with BRD and 8 Ball Meatball. The next events are scheduled for Saturday at Diamondback Brewing Co. in Locust Point (beer-and-doughnut pairings) and Saturday and Sunday at Harbor East’s Cava Mezze (Greek-inspired doughnuts like “crazy feta everything bagel” and sour cherry).
On April 6, Sundays Bakehouse will head to Rye in Fells Point for cocktail-doughnut pairings. The doughnuts will make an appearance at Snake Hill in Highlandtown on April 13 to combine sausage and beer with doughnuts. And the final pop-up is set for April 16 at Peko Peko Ramen, which will serve Japanese-inspired doughnuts like matcha custard and red bean cream.
Each doughnut costs $2.75-$3.25.
When it opens in mid-April, Sundays Bakeshop will join Center Cut Doughnuts as a recent doughnut maker another to join Hampden’s culinary scene. Center Cut opened in January at 3528 Chestnut Ave., replacing B Doughnut.
In addition to Dooby’s, Han owns the cocktail bar Sugarvale.
