The uproar that surrounded Dochi’s arrival invited cynicism: All that hype? Over a doughnut? The Orlando-based brand expanded to Chinatown–International District (in Uwajimaya’s food court) with Seattle’s first taste of the mochi-based doughnuts popular in Japan. Fried rounds of glutinous rice deliver a chewy, complex experience, rather than bear claw–style sugar saturation. With a few thrilling exceptions (say, Biscoff and cookie butter), adventurous icing combos like matcha Oreo and taro pebbles remain mostly a flavor footnote to that awesome texture. See you in line.
