The month of may we celebrate our fellow neighbors around the world, how they have shared their remarkable heritages and traditions, such as unique style cooking that is found all over the world today I’ll be sharing five must try Asian and Pacific Islander foodie spots with you.

2. Dochi Donut. Located In Orlando, Florida.
Now, these donuts aren’t your everyday donuts, these are Japanese mochi donuts. You might say, what is a mochi donut? It is soft, chewy, and airy made between Japanese rice cake (aka mochi) and classic American fried donut. These donuts have their very own unique bubble ring shape, which makes them easy to tear, pop and melt into your mouth. Each week they feature new and exciting flavors, so be sure to follow Dochi Florida on social media to stay up to date on when the new flavors drop. A fun place to come for breakfast or afternoon snacks with friends or family. A must-try on your visit to Orlando.
