First opened in Sydney in 2019, Demochi Donut Bar is where you can enjoy mochi donuts, something that is rarely seen in Australia. In addition to the flavours that are always available, Demochi Donuts also offers a few weekly specials for those desiring some variety.

Their mochi donuts have a slightly chewy texture while still retaining some lightness and were not overly sweet. The matcha glaze of the Matcha Donut was not too thick and added a touch of bitter flavour that was not too overwhelming.

Among the flavours that are always available, the honey glaze of the Honey with Sprinkles added extra sweetness without making the donut too sweet. The sprinkles scattered over the top added a bit of a crunch to the donut.

The black sesame glaze of the Black Sesame Donut had a delectable nutty flavour. Extra black sesame flavour was provided by a sprinkling of whole black sesame on top of the donut.

For those looking for something a bit unique, there is the Strawberry with Pistachio Donut. The strawberry glaze had a delightful sweet flavour with a hint of tartness. Slivers of pistachio added a slight crunch and a bit of a nutty flavour.

Compared to the other flavours that we have tried, the flavour of the Mango Yuzu Donut leaned more towards a tart flavour. While the addition of mango may seem a bit odd, it actually went well with the yuzu.

For those looking for an option without a sugary glaze, there is the Traditional Cinnamon Donut. It may not look like it at first but the amount of cinnamon sugar was enough to make eating the donut a satisfying experience. The sugar coating also added extra texture to the donut.
