Mister Donut Japan will soon be offering savory doughnuts filled with meat and mashed potatoes.
The doughnut chain’s newest product, the Zaku Mochi Ring, has both a crunchy and chewy texture, according to a press release.
Each ring is made using wheat flour from the Japanese region of Hokkaido and features two different fillings.
The Zaku Motchi Ring with Beef Stew and Potato features “a smooth beef stew and cheese-flavored mashed potatoes” and is topped with parsley.
Meanwhile, the Zaku Motchi Ring with Spicy Meat and Potato has “tomato-based spicy meat and cheese-flavored mashed potatoes” and a paprika powder garnish.
For doughnut lovers who’d prefer a sweet treat, Mister Donut will also be selling the Zaku Mochi Ring with Azuki and Whipped Cream. This item has azuki bean paste, whipped cream and a dusting of kinako sugar.
According to Mister Donut, the Zaku Mochi Rings can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or as a light meal during busy periods of one’s day.
They each cost 270 yen (approximately $1.93) for take-out and 275 yen (approximately $1.97) for dine-in and will be available across Japan starting on Friday.
