On June 20th, AroundAmbler.com reported that a business featuring mochi donuts was coming to the Gwynedd Center shopping center at 832 North Bethlehem Pike in Spring House (Lower Gwynedd).
At that time, we did not know the name of the business. We found an Instagram page for it and it is named Mochi Ring.
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.
The image above shows some of the flavors that are available.
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. 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.
Mochi Ring currently has locations in Jenkintown, Philadelphia, and Edison (NJ), plus four “coming soon” locations in Spring House, Conshohocken, Upper Darby, and Cherry Hill (NJ).
The Spring House location is expected to open in July.
