A Taste of Japan's Sweets at Mochi Cream

Best Blogger Tips
I love eating Mochi! I love it so much that I would put mochi balls as the toppings on my yogurt. I like the different variants such as Mochi Poochi's ice cream mochi and it was really delicious.

So when I saw a friend in Facebook posting about Mochi Cream’s desserts and how he doesn't mind spending for it, I became quite curious about it. Mochi Cream claims to serve the authentic mochi from Japan. That made me even more excited to try it out that I went to Glorietta last weekend. 

When I got there, I expected all the usual sweet stuff: chocolates, strawberries, blueberries, vanilla…. but I got surprised with what I saw. On their posters are the flavors green tea, black sesame, matcha, red bean, sakura…. I mean, are these desserts? But according to boyfie, those are the real flavors from Japan.

There are also chocolate and vanilla in the menu, but only a little. I’m used to western desserts and pastries that are more on the sweeter side. Japanese desserts are different, I guess. Theirs is still more on the ‘herbal’ and ‘plant’ side of things. Hehehe~

So anyway, for my purchase, I chose the flavor I’m most curious with: Sakura. It was the most attractive in the bunch, being in cute pink! (^_^) But yeah, my sweet tooth side just won’t let me go and I ordered Chocolate Banana too,

The staff were nice and they served my mochi gourmet style, complete with presentation. The mochi were cut in half and so I saw the creative layers inside. Cool!

Both mochi were frozen at first but they’re chewable already. Biting into the chewy skin, I tasted something akin to red bean paste with a flower flavor. The cream at the center tasted like vanilla.  It might be just me, but the sakura flavor mochi has a floral taste. Ah well, just go and taste if for yourself because I can’t describe it. It was unique and distinctive.

For the Chocolate Banana, the bean paste was all about banana with chocolate chips. The cream in the center is chocolate. It is gently sweet. The flavor of glutinous rice is still dominant. Of course, I choose this to be better than Sakura, hey, I am a sweet tooth. Hehehe~

These babies are really delicious and yes, they taste like Japan! Now, I’m addicted with Mochi Cream too! Woah~ The staff will really be familiar with my face this time. And just like my friend, I will not think twice of spending for these lovely mochi!
