Mochinut, a wildly popular sweet spot, is planning a Florida expansion, and its latest announcement will bring the delicious treats to the Tampa Bay region. It’s set to debut on June 18 2022 at 11401 N 56th Street. The owners are currently waiting for some permits to be approved before officially opening their doors. Another location is set for Pinellas Park in a location that’s still TBA. What is a mochi donut?
“Mochi donut is the titillating product of the happy union between Japanese rice cake (mochi) and American-style doughnuts, which originated in Hawaii,” writes the Mochinut team. These desserts are super sweet, very flaky, and offer one of the most satisfying crunches you’ve ever enjoyed.

Its main menu consists of a variety of Mochi Donuts, and Korean rice flour hotdogs. Currently, they have more than 20 branches in US with 90 more branches scheduled to open in the country.
The rice flour makes the donuts stretchy and chewy. “There is a sticky addictiveness to each bite, a textural element that is completely different from yeast or cake donuts,” write the owners on the Mochinut website.
Donut flavors include ube, matcha, strawberry, banana milk, mango, churro, and black sugar. You’ll find ample boba flavors to pair with the morning or afternoon snack. The purple ube boba is already calling my name.
Rice flour hot dogs and boba are on the menu
Mochinut’s rice flour hot dogs include a fried ramen hot dog, and a hot Cheetos and mozzarella hot dog.
