The imminently 'grammable doughnut pop-up shop's return to the East End Market was already a welcome treat, but they're celebrating in signature style, but letting their crullers do the talking.
All you have to do is tag a friend in the comments of this post on Dochi's Instagram feed:
The offer is good for one doughnut per person, during their business hours of 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, May 16-17. They are located on the second floor.View this post on Instagram
Who wants FREE DOCHI? Dochi will be back this weekend‼️ We missed being here for you. So for this weekend, we’re giving away free donuts for you. All you have to do is tag a friend in the comments and show it to us when you get here and we’ll hook you up with a free dochi! 📸: @annie_eatsfood (1 per customer while supplies last) Saturday-Sunday 11am-3pm Upstairs @eastendmkt
Dochi will be joined upstairs during those same hours by a pop-up of the Mills 50 neighborhood's RoyalTea, which will be serving their cheese-mousse-topped, boba-filled, steeped-tea-leaf beverages.
When they're not at the East End Market, Dochi usually graces Lake Nona's Boxi Park. Boxi Park announced their temporary closure during coronavirus shutdowns on March 19, while East End has continued peddling their locally sourced goods via a mobile market from a van.
The East End Mobile Market is serving a new trio of Thai dishes from kitchen tenant Cooking With Chay, created by chef Chay Butz. The trio will offer shrimp pad thai with a side of two satay chickens, beef fried rice with a side of two spring rolls, and red chicken curry with a side of two spring rolls and jasmine rice.
They have an explainer video on how to order. You can sign up here for East End's alerts, too. The Mobile Market will deliver Wednesdays to College Park for lunch and Thornton-Hourglass-Delaney-Belair for dinner. On Thursdays, they'll deliver to Audubon Park and Colonial Town for lunch and to Baldwin Park for dinner. On Fridays, they're in Thornton Park, Hourglass, Delaney and Belair for lunch, and in College Park for dinner again. Saturdays, they are split between east Winter Park and Casselberry for lunch and west Winter Park and Maitland for dinner.
The East End Mobile Market is delivering meals from the kitchen tenants to different Orlando neighborhoods.
Permanent East Enders Skyebird Juice Bar and Experimental Kitchen is open this weekend too, and their takeout window – open daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. – has been jumping lately. Skyebird is now hiring a new front-of-house team member to start part-time, but they say it could become full-time. If you have the attention to detail, customer service skills and the multi-tasking ability they're seeking, you can send your resume to [email protected].
So, yeah – there's a lot more than free doughnuts going on at East End Market right now.
