Soft and silky

This was what I got 2 weeks ago.

Real Japanese mochi!!!

Oh my gawd, I've been dying to eat mochi from Japan and not those from Ichiban Boshi. Courtesy of my friend Tee Guan who got them from Japan and kept some for me.

I was quite suprised by the shape of the mochi as I was expecting them to be round like those in Singapore. But rather, they were triangular.

The black ones are black sesame which I absolutely love while the other ones are banana and chocolate. Well, you can't really taste the chocolate but more of the banana which taste a little like medicine.

The skin is also super thin meaning you can taste more of the filling. Oh man, I'm drooling as I'm typing this.

Well, I hope one day I'll be able to go to Japan to eat their sashimi, ramen, red bean, black sesame, soft icecream... ... ... rambles on
