My cousin treated us to desserts from Mochi Cream after eating at Santouka (click here for review) at the Mitsuwa Shopping Market. At first glance, I thought “Oh yum…Mochis”. I’ve always liked mochi since it has a sweet, chewy texture and filled with either ice cream or cream or both. I was delightfully surprised to find that Mochi Cream has THE best mochis I’ve ever had. Normally, when you eat them in the restaurants, they’re lightly powdery with a sweet, chewy tapioca texture with ice cream on the inside and yeah, that’s great, but these mochis had another level of flavor.

Green Tea Mochi.
There was a sort of paste or powder on the inside, depending on the flavor that you get. Each flavor was almost unique. Some fruity mochis had fresh fruit inside. Some had bits of chocolate. My favorite was the green tea mochi since it was jampacked with green tea matcha flavor. There was matcha on the outside and it even had a powder or a paste coating the cream inside. Other flavors that I tried: Peach Yogurt, Caramel Macchiato, Double Mango.
When you order them, they initially are frozen. You can eat them while they cream is still frozen or you can wait until it’s thawed out. I liked both ways. When it’s frozen, it’s like ice cream encased with a delicious sweetness. When it’s thawed, it’s a soft pillowy dessert that gushes with cream as you bite into it. YUM! I love that Mochi Cream’s mochis all have a uniqueness and authenticity about them. If you’re gonna make dessert, go all out right?
I took these to the Oakland airport with me and flew to New Orleans, LA and they held pretty well. I ate them that night. I wouldn’t let it go any longer since it is a cream product and should be refrigerated.
