Indulging food alert! The first mochi donut store has opened in Paris! Ponpon Café, here is the name of this spot already meeting great success attracting everyone in Paris. We tried it and loved it!

What is a mochi donut? As its name suggests, it is the blending of a donut and a mochi, of course. Imagine, the smoothness of a mochi on one hand and the warmth and crunch of a donut on the other, and there you are, drooling already. Well, we can see you coming, this stuff is surely heavy and fat! Well, it tastes light and airy, and is easy to eat, actually.

Head to Ponpon Café, the latest coffee shop in Paris 1st arrondissement, opened in January, a stone’s throw from the Louvre. It expects you 7 days a week, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to indulge foodies.

For your information, the real name of the mochi donut is Son de Ring, coming from Pão de queijo (a Brazilian recipe of cheese based on tapioca flour). They are inspired by the Japanese Poi mochi, the first mochi donuts based on sticky rice flour, and created in 1992 in Hawaii!

On site, discover a large choice:

  • Rose / Raspberry / Lychee
  • Vietnamese coffee
  • Yuzu
  • Matcha

But note flavors regularly change. You can follow Ponpon’s Instagram stories, they share the flavors of the day every morning. Allow €5 the pastry. It might sound expensive, but do not forget in store, a mochi costs around €3. A mochi donut is 2 to 3 mochis.
