Before we leave Tokyo Street, I though of trying one of the desserts they sell there. I was attracted to Mochi, one of the cake shops there.
Mochi Sweets. Japanese Luxury Deli. Katanya~
Awww aren't they just cute? I love their subtle pastel colours. They reminded me of the fusion of macaroons and taro. And look how soft they look, really tempted me to gently rub them on my cheeks hahaha. Ok stop it Suraya, you are scaring people. =D
I remember tasting them at my Okasan's (mother in Japanese. That's what I address my pet mother in Japan as well) kitchen. The taste is mostly similar to one another, very subtle, yet you can enjoy them differently though the flavours are not very distinct.
|I can't really recall the flavours but they have a variety, as you can see here, Cream Chocolate (RM 3.50 each) & Black Chocolate (RM 4.00 each). Some other flavours I recall are Chocolate Mousse, Caramel Macchiato, Red Bean and even Sakura.|
|A sample of their box set. I just bought 3 pieces of it. I took the recommended Blueberry Cream, Mango Yogurt and another one that I was not attracted but she said that was really nice. Ahhh sorry guys forgot which flavour.|

Anyways the Filipino staff there are helpful in recommending the flavours to me. I asked them what are the ingredients and she said that these frozen chewy dessert are made from sticky rice filled with yummy cream inside.
Just when I thought I could share it with Iqi, the staff told me about the eating instructions on the paper pack. Ok let's start "Simply store in a refrigerator and consume on the day of purchase. Do not refreeze after thawing." She told me since it is frozen therefore the cream are not melted to be eaten at its best yet, so again the instruction asked to defrost first. "Defrost time : 20 minutes in the Summer (duh in Malaysia it's always summer.), 40 minutes in the Winter (at Cameron Highlands maybe). It is most enjoyable when sticky rice skin becomes soft."
Since Zahia & I had to depart soon, she did not manage to try them. I brought them home, ate them with my family. Well they are nice since it reminded me of my Okasan's kitchen as I have mentioned. As for Deena, she loves them, especially on how adorable they look. =) Oh yes you can go to Mochi's branch at Gardens @ Mid Valley as well. =)
Thanks for reading guys!
