Mochinut: A Chewy, Crispy, Utterly Addicting Treat!

Haven’t been to Mochinut yet? Here’s what you’re missing.

Mochinut is the donut shop that opened this past fall. But these aren’t anything like your everyday donuts. What makes them unique is their shape, size and addicting texture. Mochinuts donuts are a combination mochi, a Japanese rice cake, and an American-style doughnuts. The outside has a light, crispy coating, but the inside is soft and chewy because they are made with rice flour. And they sort look like a bubbly, wobbly donut; they’re made by connecting 8 dough balls into a circle. Some of the flavors are familiar like Dark Chocolate, Nutella and Oreo but others, again, are in a class by themselves like Matcha, Starwberry Pebbles, Vietnamese Coffee and Black Sesame.

While you’re there, you have to try a rice hotdog., Again, this is not like your average American dog. This “hotdog” is coated in rice flour and filled with spicy sausage and/or mozzerella then covered with toppings like bread crumbs, diced potatoes, or hot cheetos…THEN deep fried! It is an utterly unique experience eating one of these! I cannot compare it to anything else. And wash it all down with a refreshing Boba tea, a coffee or a chai or matcha drink.

A box of two donuts, $5.95. A dozen, $29.95. And they do deliver. They have a Summit and Montclair location.
