Momi Donuts

The Gateway, Utah’s premier community gathering, dining and entertainment destination, is happy to welcome Momi Donuts. Their grand opening is planned for Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019 at noon. Momi’s mochi donuts are one of the hottest new food trends coming out of Asia and Momi Donuts is the first mochi donut bakery in Utah. Located in Restaurant Row on the south end of the property, Momi Donuts is a popular new addition of 550 square feet of dining to the Gateway’s growing list of specialty restaurants.

Pon de Rings, a type of mochi donuts, are sweet and chewy, not cakey or heavily battered like their western counterparts. They are made with naturally gluten-free glutinous rice flour and tapioca starch,instead of traditional white or wheat-based flours. Each donut is made up of eight connected balls or “donut holes” forming a ring. Each glazed with delicious flavors, Momi Donuts offers original specialty glazes, including strawberry, cookies and cream and other seasonal flavors.
