Mochi Sweets (日本傳統的甜)

We decided to visit Bugis+ yesterday, and found the new tenant-mix so much better than the last. There's a huge Sephora store, Uniglo, and a dessert store called Mochi Sweets which caught my eye. When we first laid eyes on the display, the first thought that came to mind was Mochi Cream, a similar dessert we had encountered on one of our trips to Japan. Honestly, I think they just named it differently.

The boy decided on a black sesame mochi, and I chose the purple potato mochi. At $2.50 to $2.80 per mochi, it is on the expensive side, though still cheaper than in Japan. The mochis are frozen and you have to wait at least 20 minutes for it to thaw before the texture is perfect for consumption.

They were really flavourful, though a tad too sweet. Thank goodness for the teaspoon of cream inside which helped to balance out the sweetness.

That looks like real mochi, all right, but ... frozen?

PS: It's sakura mochi time in Tokyo right now. ^^

Yes, Singapore weather :S I think it's also because the cream filling would be all runny and yucky in no time were it not frozen.

P.S Ya I know. Jealous. Lol.
