You can now find chewy Korean mochi donuts in flavours like matcha, strawberry & more at this adorable pink kiosk in Tanglin Mall

We’ve had our fair share of mochi ice cream, waffles, cakes, bread, scones, and now, a crowd favourite — donuts. Hooray.

If you’re the type who dreams of donuts all day, every day, here’s something to tide you over as we eagerly wait for the opening of a certain Japanese donut chain, in the form of Korean mochi donuts from Donas 8 in Tanglin Mall.

Those who’ve already visited Korean lifestyle marketplace and food hall Market Blue may remember the striking pink and cream-coloured kiosk situated right at the entrance. It’s now home to Donas 8, an in-house bakery specialising in chapssal donuts (Korean donuts made with sweet glutinous rice flour) priced at S$3.20 each.

Although these bomboloni-esque donuts, which are commonly found at traditional market stalls, are typically filled with sweetened red bean paste and coated with a mixture of sugar and cinnamon powder, Donas 8 has taken it up a notch with flavours like Matcha, Strawberry, and Choco.

Each mochi donut boasts a crisp exterior and chewy insides, akin to that of those Chinese fried sesame balls, with either a cream cheese or red bean paste filling. Although the latter was unavailable during our visit, I was happy to settle for the neutral-tasting cream cheese — it goes well with almost everything, after all!

I particularly enjoyed both the Matcha and Strawberry donuts, which were dusted with bittersweet matcha and zesty freeze-dried strawberry powder respectively (and sugar, of course).

However, I would’ve liked for each different flavour to have a corresponding filling (e.g. matcha donuts with a matcha filling) instead of the standard red bean or cream cheese. Variety is the spice of life, no?

If you’re not planning to enjoy your donuts on the day itself (or even better, when they’re fresh out of the fryer), simply pop them into the freezer when you get home, and air fry at 180 degrees for five minutes when you’re ready to eat.
