Mochinut, the California chain known for its chewy mochi-doughnut hybrids and Korean-style hot dogs, will open its first North Texas location this weekend.

The eatery, at 3052 Old Denton Road in Carrollton, will open at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 16, per to a post to its Instagram account. According to the company, the mochi doughnut was first created in Hawaii, where the treat’s unique texture and flower-like shape quickly went viral. The doughnuts are made with rice flour, which lends them a slightly crispy exterior, and a crave-inducing, stretchy-chewy interior. At Mochinut, the doughnuts are then glazed with flavors like taro, yuzu, melon, matcha, and churro.

The eatery also sells one of Dallas’s hottest food trends — Korean hot dogs — stuffed with cheddar cheese, mozzerella, or hot dogs and covered with crispy coatings like fried potatoes and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos dust.

The Carrollton location, next door to boba tea favorite TeaLatte Bar, will be the third outpost in Texas, joining shops in Houston’s Asiatown and Katy. Originally from Los Angeles, the chain has grown quickly, with locations in South Korea, Thailand, Las Vegas, and at least one other spot planned for Texas.

The Carrollton Mochinut will be open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Scope the full menu out here.
