Serving an international flavor combination created in Hawaii that merges mochi and Japanese rice cakes with American fried doughnuts, California-born Mochinut now has a debut date for the first of two expansions to Las Vegas.
Replacing LuLaLa Karaoke & Skewers at 4355 Spring Mountain Road in Chinatown, Mochinut will officially open at 11 a.m. on April 24, close to Arville Street and new neighbor Sushi Kaya.
Serving more than two dozen varieties of pon de ring-shaped crispy and chewy doughnuts, including yuzu, ube, taro, pistachio, Nutella, and banana milk creations, Mochinut also specializes in Korean-style corn dogs on a stick, filled with sausage, mozzarella, and a rice flour batter that can be upgraded with crispy ramen or potato.
Also promised to be coming soon, but yet to announce an opening date, Mochinut will take over 977 square feet at 55 S. Valle Verde Drive, within the Smith’s-anchored retail center and three doors down from an under construction Twisted Sugar cookie store.
Future hours for both locations have not been revealed.
