Munchin' on MochiFriday, January 30, 2015
To continue my South Adventure story, we ended the day with some Mochiko Mochi ice cream. A Mochi (モチ) is a Japanese rice cake made of mochigome, a short-grain japonica glutinous rice. The rice is pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape. It is a widely known and popular as a Japanese dessert. The ice cream comes in through the filling to make a mochi ice cream.
I remember trying one out in a train station in Japan and I couldn't help but get another one. But it is my first time to try Mochiko Mochi ice cream.
The place was designed with these numerous lucky cat figurines!
We ordered a box of six so we can try different flavors. I think we asked for two green teas, strawberry, cookie dough, oreo cheesecake, and red velvet. I usually get pain or pangingilo whenever I eat cold food but this was worth the try.
Here is a cute cartoony guidelines when it comes to storing and eating your mochi!
They were all pretty yummy but I am leaning towards the oreo cheesecake flavor. I know it's a safe choice but I guess I'm just really picky like that. :) I love that it also teaches you the value of patience. :P
Have a great weekend ahead! :)
Love lots, xx
PS. Another Japanese food. It's becoming quite a pattern. ;)
