Mochi Sweets


Today I want to introduce you to one of my favorite things in Hong Kong: japanese frozen mochis from Mochi Sweets. You already know about my obsession with cupcakes but what if I told you that I enjoy these japanese delicacies even more? 



A mochi is a round-shaped rice cake made of glutinous rice, traditionally made in Japan in a ceremony called Mochitsuki. The mochis from Mochi Sweets are frozen and come with a flavored cream inside. You need to wait 20 minutes in summer, or 40 minutes in winter, to eat them after purchase. They come in 15 different flavors, from the traditional Red bean to modern creations such as Mango Yoghurt or Chocolate mousse, with all the ingredients being flown in from Japan. I've tried almost all of them, and my absolute favorite is the Sakura mochi, followed by the Green tea mochi. 





I've tried many mochis in my life, even in Japan itself, from normal ones to the modern mochi ice cream, but the ones from Mochi Sweets are the most amazing of them all. Perfect flavour and texture, I'm just totally addicted!
There's three stores in Hong Kong as follows, one in Hong Kong island and two in Kowloon:
- L010 G/F, Jusco Kornhill Store, Kornhill Plaza (North), 2 Kornhill road, Quarry Bay.
- Shop UC-SP4, Upper ConcourseLevel, APM, Millenium City 5, 418 Kwun Tong Road, Kwun Tong.
- Basement Level 1, The Sun Arcade, 28 Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
The one I always go to is the one in APM, Kwun Tong.




Overall Quality: 5*
Price: $11-$15 depending on the mochi
Value for Money: 5*
Would I recommend it? Absolutely!
