Mister Donut

Posted June 22nd, 2009 in Eat out in Japan 2 Comments »

Mister Donut is my favorite donut shop in Japan.  I just love their whole concept : their characters, color theme, variety of food…

They don’t only serve donuts, but also rich shakes, puddings, ramen noodle, yam cha food, pies, muffins etc.  You get point every time you purchase some items, and you can exchange the points to receive character goods.  The round lion (Pon De Lion) is Mister Donut’s main character, and he (she?) is so cute!  I’ve collected its mug, plate, bath towel and aprons so far.

One reason I like Mister Donut is their price.  Very reasonable.  And, you can easily download coupons through their website.  They often do campaign too – ¥100 for the regular donuts.  Cheap and delicious.



Their new menu is so exciting!  “Donut Burger” and “Pote-Do” are on my things-to-eat list for Japan trip.  Donut Burger is sweet – consisting donut, chocolate pate and sweet sauces.  


It’s summer in Japan now, and they are doing summer noodle fare.  Everything is ¥399.

    They are so yummy and deliciously light! Last time I was in Japan I used to buy about 8 of these a day!
    They are so light, I can eat lots of them and never feel sick.

    I try to tell people how good they are, and people just say, “They sound like Krispy Kreme”
    “NO!!! They’re WAY better than Krisy Kreme!!!” I yell back.

    I love their “Pon-de-Fromage”. It’s so yummy and chewy and the yoghurt on it is so good 🙂

    Ume, please eat lots of these for me when you go to Japan! ^_^

    P.S. Sorry for getting so excited, but they REALLY are THAT good!

    Haha (^^)
    I prefer Mister Donut to Krispy Kreme too! Mister Donut has better variety in their menu and flavor. I love those chewy Pond De Rings too. Yum!

    I sure will eat a lot of donuts there in Japan! Can’t wait~~
