MoreThanTheCurve.com has confirmed that Mochi Ring Donut has signed a lease for 101 Fayette Street (the former Jimmy John’s) in Conshohocken. Samuel Thiers of Metro Commercial represented the property owner.
So what is a mochi donut? From Mochi Ring Donuts’ website:
As its an ingredient that’s delicate in its flavor yet rich in its structure, mochi is a Japanese rice cake made from glutinous rice, commonly found in many east Asian cuisines. The mochi donut was created to give the classic, traditional donut a new twist to its taste and name. In other words, mochi donut is a unique creation of ingredients found commonly in the east that perfectly matches those from the west.
Also on the menu are Korean corn dogs, which are described as follows:
Korean corn dogs are made from either sausage, mozzarella cheese, or a combination of the two. This is skewered and coated in a sweet flour batter before rolled in a layer of toppings. What is this? Common topping choices include panko breadcrumbs, french fries, cornflake, and even ramen noodles!
There are also a variety of bubble teas available on the menu. From the website:
Bubble tea is a tea-based drink that originated in Taiwan in the early 1980s. It most commonly consists of tea accompanied by chewy tapioca balls, but it can be made with other toppings as well.
This will be Mochi Ring Donut’s fifth location. There are locations in Jenkintown, Philadelphia, Edison (NJ), and a “coming soon” location in Cherry Hill (NJ).
The opening date is not yet known. More to come.
