So I mentioned in my previous post about Mitsuwa. Inside Mitsuwa, there’s a Japanese sweets shop called Mochicream. They sell lots of different flavors of mochi and some desserts. There’s a counter displaying all the mochi that they sell and when you go there, all you have to do is take a piece of the ordering list on top of the counter and tick off the ones that you want and write the quantity.
I don’t remember exactly what favors they have but I bought the mango, orange cheese, coffee, red bean, green tea, blueberry cream, rum raisin and some others. They are kinda overpriced. $2.10 for the fancy ones and about $1.80 for the more normal flavors.
Once you have filled in your sheet, just head to the register to pay and they will take your list and pack the mochi for you with they kept frozen in the freezer. I left mine in the car for the whole day as we shopped around and when I reached home at night, I just popped them into the fridge and ate them the next day.
Every flavor is yummy! Some have a caramelized filling that is crunchy when you bite into it and some have a cream filling. I can’t tell which is what. How I wish they label their mochi instead of giving it just like that.
Besides mochi, they have some small desserts also such as mango pudding, tiramisu, red velvet cakes etc. These are about $3.95 each.
