Savory Korean Donut Question

I recently had a snack at the Koreatown Galleria bakery (the one in the supermarket downstairs). It was donut-shaped, deep-fried, and filled with what I assume was potato and other spices.

Can anyone tell me what this is called? Or recommend other places to find them?

  1. I don't know what that particular treat is called by I know that Mil Hama Bakery on the southwest corner of 6th and Kenmore has a lot of savory goods so you might be able to find it there.

    1. i think you're talking about the veggie donut. it's basically a donut filled with diff veggies, carrots, onions, potatoes and fried. sometimes they put potato salad in it, or sometimes curry.

      1. theyre called korokke. its japanglish and konglish for croquette.

        1. re: doughnut

          Various korokke are available at pretty much any Korean and Japanese bakery. I've found it easier to find veggie ones (but they sometimes have little bits of ham or something else as well) at Korean bakeries and curry ones at Japanese bakeries.

        2. Thanks for the info everyone.
