Who says you have to eat a traditional corn dog or doughnut anymore? These days, you can find all sorts of delicious options that are anything but basic.
During this time of travel and family gatherings, branch out and try something you may have never seen before. Introducing Mochinut, the home of mochi donuts, Korean corn dogs, and other delightful treats!
Mochi donuts originated in Hawaii, combining American donuts with Japanese mochi to create a fluffy and subtly sweet treat. These donuts are highly recognizable because they are shaped like a ring of individual balls stuck together and covered in flavored frosting.
Made with rice flour, the donuts are crispy on the outside and sticky on the inside. They're easy to share (although you may not want to), and they come in all sorts of flavors, including churro, coffee, ube, red velvet, peanut butter, mango, blueberry, cheesecake, and more. Some are topped with cookies, fruits, cereal flakes, or nuts.
Mochinut is known for its variety, and that's why it offers different mochi donut flavor sets every week. The weekly flavors are posted in each store's Instagram story every Sunday, so scroll down to follow each store on social media.
Korean corn dogs
Korean corn dogs, simply known as hot dogs in Korea, have been around since the 1980s. These eye-catching corn dogs are extremely photogenic and yummy, despite sounding a bit strange. The hot dog is coated in rice flour batter and fried to form a typical corn dog, but the outer layer is covered in toppings like potatoes, bread crumbs, ramen, or hot Cheetoes. The inside is filled with either a spicy sausage, mozzarella cheese, or a half-dog, half-cheese combination. Unusual? Maybe. Mouthwateringly irresistible? Absolutely!
Need to quench your thirst? Mochinut has plenty of drinks, including milk tea, Thai tea, coffee, and matcha.
They also have several flavors of soft serve for you to try (maybe more of a summer item, but it's there if you want it).
Mochinut has four locations in or near Seattle. Visit one today to order a donut, corn dog, or both, and don't be afraid to experiment with different combinations to find your favorite. Also, be sure to follow Mochinut on social media for awesome pictures and menu updates.
