I’m a little late to the Mochiko party, I know, but give me some time to catch up yeah? First things first, what is a mochi? Mochi is basically a traditional Japanese dessert/sweets/snack made from sticky rice cake. Normally, it’s filled with azuki or red bean filling. Giving this traditional dessert a twist though, are the sundry of flavours Mochiko put in their selection.
The Alabang Town Center branch of Mochiko is in the new wing, quietly tucked away from the mayhem of the mall. It’s cozy and really really pink! Although I wasn’t able to take a photo of the interior because there were quite a handful of people quietly enjoying their mochis.
According to their website, they have 16 flavors. I already knew what I wanted when I saw their display–Oreo and Milk, and Vanilla. Easy! :p
Their Orea & Milk mochi gets A+ for me because it had real Oreo inside! This was really yummy! We didn’t wait for it to thaw so we struggled biting through the rice cake. :p
This was “my” mochi but kinda regretted that I didn’t try a more exciting flavor like caramel or black sesame! I just couldn’t find enough vanilla flavor in it. And mind you, vanilla is one of my favorite ice cream flavors. Such experience merits a second chance!
For Php70 per mochi, I think it’s a fair price since they only use premium ingredients. What flavours have you tried?
