I love love love this Japanese creation. Often found as a popular dessert in Japanese sushi restaurants you can also pick Mochi up in the freezer section of Trader Joe's. Available in strawberry, chocolate, mango and green tea; its the perfect treat.
More specifically Mochi is a very fine, exquisitely grained, chewy rice cake dough. Mikawaya's Mochi Ice Cream is more exactly a soft middle of impeccably, delicious ice cream nestled inside the best mochi this side of Japan. So if you're thinking, East meets West in the best of possible ways and that sort of thingÂ…well, you're exactly right!
Tip: Mochi sliced in half and served with toothpicks is a fabulous party treat.
