Have you come across it yet in major shopping malls like Pavilion, The Gardens and Sunway? I actually passed by it a few times before giving it a try. I was never a big fan of mochi. Don't get me wrong, I like mochi. But I never find it worth to try them out in shopping malls or in restaurants. I usually buy the mochi in pasar malam, which is a different kind of mochi.
The mochi that can be widely found in pasar malams are the rice cake coated with peanuts. But the mochis sold in Mochi Sweets are the mochis orginated from Japan itself. Mochi from Japan are rice cake made of glutinous rice flour moulded into round shape and has filling in it.
They have so many many many many flavors. I really wanted to try all! The size of one mochi is really big and can be shared by 2 people. They display their many flavors of mochi for their customers to choose. The choices of flavors are Black Chocolate, Sakura, Red Bean, Green Tea, Chocolate Mousse, Caramel Macchiato, Cream Chocolate, Purple Potato, Mango Yoghurt, Mango Mousse, Honey Lemon Cream, Chestnut Cream, Peach Cream, Bluberry Cream and lastly, Straberry. All of them sounds so yummy right? And look at their display. Don't you feel like having them all? They flavors they have are also quite interesting, like the Sakura. They made a flavor from the Japanese national flower, Sakura. I want to try that one the next time and also the purple potato
I tried two flavors which are Green Tea and Black Chocolate. Each mochi costed RM4.50. You might think it's a little expansive for a piece of mochi. But I really find it very worthy to buy because of the size of the mochi and also the taste of it. I've never tasted such nice mochi before. It was really worth my money. The skin of the mochi was slightly cold but the filling in it was really creamy. The green tea was really nice. The black chocolate was a little too bitter. If you're not fan of dark chocolate, don't give that a try. The cream chocolate is a better fit for you.
