Something about Vancouver's doughnuts have certainly been helping them to make their name with celebrities over the past while.
While Kate Winslet has been busy repeatedly expressing her love for Honey's Doughnuts in Deep Cove over the past year or so, two other celebrities have been more recently filming at another well-known doughnut shop.
U.S. restaurateur and TV personality David Chang and Vancouver-bred star Seth Rogen have been spotted around town.
Chang, founder of the Momofuku restaurant group (which has restaurants in Toronto; New York City; Washington, D.C.; and Sydney, Australia) launched his Netflix series Ugly Delicious in 2018, which takes indepth looks at food staples, ranging from pizza to fried chicken, in each episode.
On January 9, Vancouver Foodie Tours posted a series of photos on Instagram of Chang and Rogen visiting Lee's Donuts at the Granville Island Public Market. (Scroll through the photos below.)

Chang also posted a video from HK BBQ Master in Richmond, expressing how much he appreciates old-school-style barbecue.
Last year, Rogen proclaimed his love for food at the Richmond Night Market after the New York Times heaped praise upon Richmond for having the best Chinese food in North America.
While Rogen's voice could be heard on TransLink announcements last year until October 31, he and filmmaking partner Evan Goldberg were also producers of the comedy feature Good Boys, starring Vancouver's Jacob Tremblay. Production for the feature film took place in Vancouver from July 23 to September 11.
Rogen (whose beard appears to be growing back after he shaved it off in November, causing people to lose their minds) and Goldberg were also among the British Columbians who were inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame with a ceremony in Toronto on December 1.
