Pinellas County is about to get its mochi doughnut and Korean corn dog fix.

Nestled in a Pinellas Park plaza in between Ding Tea and Carmelita’s Mexican restaurant, is the soon-to-open Mochinut at 6242 66th St. N.

According to Mochinut’s Facebook, its Pinellas Park location celebrates its grand opening this weekend. The newly-opened cafe will offer “buy 5 get 1 free” deals for its chewy doughnuts and stuffed corn dogs, in addition to 20% off all drinks on Saturday-Sunday, Sept. 17-18.

Although its mochi doughnuts are in a constant rotation, flavors can range from ultra sweet to tangy and savory. Popular doughnut flavors include ube, churro, Nutella, cheesecake, yuzu, matcha and mango. There's almost as much variety when it comes to Mochinut's corn dog options, too. Its Korean corn dogs can be filled with either cheese, a hot dog or both—but can be coated with a variety of toppings like french fries, crispy ramen, hot Cheeto dust and crunchy cereal. 

In addition to a Korean corn dogs and mochi doughnuts, Mochinut also offers different types of boba tea. Matcha, brown sugar, milk tea, Thai tea and ube boba teas are its typical drink options. Although changes can be subject to each location, you can head to to view the full menu.
