Nestled in the casual yet popular Campus Pointe shopping center near Fresno State, a culinary gem awaits your taste buds – Mochinut. This innovative business has garnered a loyal following for its tasty offerings and welcoming atmosphere, becoming a must-visit destination for local treat seekers.
At the heart of Mochinut’s allure are their signature mochi donuts. Crafted from a delicate rice flour dough, these confections strike the perfect balance between chewy and crispy. The ingenious circular design, formed from clusters of mini-dough balls, makes them not only delicious but also ideal for sharing. Breaking off a segment to pass to a friend means you can enjoy indulging in multiple flavors. And speaking of flavors, Mochinut consistently surprises its guests with an ever-changing array of options. From the rich notes of the caramel latte to the intensely tropical twist of guava, the zesty kick of strawberry lemon churro to the classic comfort of chocolate toffee, the variety is a testament to Mochinut’s creativity.
NOT JUST DONUTS
While the mochi donuts reign supreme, Mochinut doesn’t stop there. Their take on Korean-style “corn” dogs is a sweet and savory delight. Made from rice dough instead of corn, these dogs can be filled with an array of options – from all-beef and all-cheese to pepper jack or mozzarella and beef – your tasty journey won’t end with the filling, as you get to choose a coating that ranges from the satisfying crunch of tiny cubed potatoes to the fiery kick of crushed Hot Cheetos. Each dog is then sprinkled with granulated sugar, creating a harmonious blend of sweet and savory. The final flourish comes in the form of delectable sauces. Whether you’re partial to the creamy allure of spicy mayo, the tang of garlic mayo, the fiery punch of mango habanero, or the satisfying zest of sweet chili, Mochinut has something for every palate.
An exciting development for K-dog aficionados: these delectable creations are now available throughout the week, not just on weekends (which was Mochinut’s former offering schedule for that particular menu item). The enthusiasm that Mochinut brings to their culinary concoctions extends to their boba teas and soft-serve ice cream treats. Each treat is made to order, ensuring a freshness that’s worth the short wait.
While the flavors are undeniably the stars of the show, the welcoming customer service at Mochinut shines equally bright. The staff’s kindness and friendliness and the store’s exceptional cleanliness are highlights.
It’s important to note that the interior of the store is compact and designed for take-out and counter ordering, without seating. However, just across the sidewalk, you’ll find a spacious grassy area with outdoor seating, allowing you to savor your treats in a relaxed setting.
If you’re tempted to embark on a Mochinut journey, you can find them at 3112 E Campus Point Drive. Their doors are open from Monday to Thursday, 11 am to 7 pm; Friday and Saturday, 11 am to 9 pm; and Sunday, 11 am to 5 pm. As every creation is made fresh and tailored to your preferences, a bit of patience when ordering is advised, but the payoff is definitely worth it.
