Most delicious things are always bound to happen anyway, it’s just a matter of time. Mochi is a kind of Japanese rice cake made with short-grain Japonica glutinous rice, or Mochigome, and traditionally ground and pounded into shape during an elaborate ceremony. It was and still is especially popular during New Year in Japan, but its scrumptiousness couldn’t be kept under wraps forever, and so its popularity just keeps spreading. Mochi is now sold in kiosks, from Japan to South Korea, Taiwan, China, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines and even Hawaii.
Mochi Sweets, thank sweet heavens, now has four branches in Manila where you can redeem your box of mochi goodies. Mochi Sweets makes mochi as close to the traditional way as possible using the finest ingredients just to give you the real deal, and in flavors nobody can resist. It’s perfect for taking home to your brood of dessert-crazy kiddos, or to take with you on your Saturday afternoon girls-only talkathons. You can also just stock them in your fridge or pantry for when anybody at home sneaks out at midnight looking for something to lure in the sweet dreams.
