Japanator Eats: Mr. Croissant Donut photo
Japanator Eats: Mr. Croissant Donut
by Kristina Pino

With my return to Japanator comes the return of videos in which you get to watch me eat stuff from Japan with more regularity. My first entry in this new era of food videos features an inspired dish, the Mr Croissant Donut, which takes after the cronuts of New York. Mr Donut has given them fruit flavors, serving up orange, berry, and mixed fruit varities, and then added some sort of filling for maximum tastiness.

I grabbed an orange cronut with lemon filling, and ate it on camera. Check out the gallery for some stills!

Chocolate not doing it for you? Try some baked Kit Kats instead

Japan is well known for its exclusive and extravagant Kit Kat flavours, with the likes of cherry blossom, green tea and wasabi joining the more standard milk chocolate and orange varieties. Creating new flavours just isn't en...

Sushi created with a single grain of rice

The potential of a lone grain of rice has been tested time and time again. It's been used as a canvas for meticulous illustrations, laser engravings, and sculpted on to make micro-masterpieces. This time, it's something with...

Burger King Japan wants you to eat their giant sausage

What do you do when your competition announces something special? Usually, you find something similar and ride their coattails into the land of profit. In the case of Burger King Japan, you show everybody your giant wiener. A...

What in this room is made of chocolate?

You know Japanese variety shows are interesting, to say the least. In this episode, one of the games they had looks awfully salivating. The staff got together some master chocolatiers and had them craft objects within a room...

Attack on Arteries: New Lotteria burgers are insane

I can imagine that the design process for an Attack on Titan burger must have been a tough one. Grilling pictures into the bun would have been lame, and you can't really pick specialist ingredients when the only things that g...

Beware the kraken with the Deep Sea Curry

I love seeing specialized dishes at Japanese cafes. It's incredible how much attention and detail go into some of these drinks and plates. Most of the time, these items look delectable and I want them in front of me as soon a...

An overview of Hinamatsuri and some speed snacking

Misdo is meeting Spring with strawberries

I'm pretty much over Winter at this point. I mean, I've been over it. But nowadays, with all this stupid snow, I'm feeling the desire to see Springtime more than ever. And in an effort to get people like me even more in the m...
