This is Perth’s very own Japanese mochi donut store! What’s different about mochi donuts is the texture, which is from the glutinous rice or tapioca flour. This different flour (compared to the regular yeast flour) allows the donuts to soak up more flavours and provide a little chewiness that is oh-so addictive. Choose from plain, original sugar, original glazed, mango, Earl Grey, Thai green tea, black sesame, coffee & dark cho, strawberry, caramel, matcha and more! Flavours change monthly, so be sure to keep an eye out on their socials for updates. Grab your mochi donuts from their bake shop in Vic Park or order online.
