Mochi Sweets

Mochi Sweets was one of the participants in the recent Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test. It was based in Hong Kong and has just reached the Philippine shores. I wouldn’t call it as the best dessert (okay, at least in my opinion it is) in the UTT for nothing, and here I’ll show you why.


Mochi, in case you don’t know, is a Japanese rice cake dessert. It is similar with the Chinese tikoy, soft chewy exterior, with a filling. The difference is, mochi is a lot prettier (and I couldn’t emphasize this enough), and much more delicious.

So far, the only Mochi Sweets stall I know can be found at SM Mall of Asia. Yeah, I know, MOA is big so let me draw you a map… hehehe… kidding. Just make your way to the Ice Skating Rink, and somewhere along the area you will see MS.

If you go on a Sunday you might see the cute guy I was referring to in my UTT post. But girls and gays, we can only look, we are not allowed to touch! The guy may be cute and nice, but he is married so keep yourselves calm!ย Anyway, we should thank him and his wife for bringing MS in the Philippines.

There are many flavors to choose from like chestnut cream, dark chocolate, red bean, blueberry cream, peach cream, strawberry cream, honey lemon cream, cream chocolate, black sesame, durian mousse, chocolate mousse, sakura (yes, the Japanese flower), and mango yogurt.

So far I’ve tried four flavors starting with my favorite, Green Tea. Yes, you read that right, the type of tea I so hate happens to be my favorite mochi flavor. I don’t know how they did it, but the MS people are genius! They managed to turn this bitter tea flavor into a delicious mochi treat.

Caramel Macchiato I believe, is their only coffee flavor. It does have a hint of coffee taste. It’s good but not as fine as the green tea.

Purple Potato is another must-try. Among the ones that I tried, it has the richest flavor. It tasted a lot like this food, which name I couldn’t freaking remember. It is enough to say that this one is yummylicious.

If you want something a little sour but not too intense, I suggest you try Mango Mousse. Provided I wasn’t seeing things, I think I caught bits of real mango in it. It was refreshing, a welcome break from all the sweet mochis that I had.

It’s PHP 70 a piece but you can also get it in a box of 6 (PHP 420) or 12 (PHP 840). They even use a dark colored, elegant-looking box for it, just like what they use for expensive chocolates.

Mochis are kept cold; you have the option to eat it as it is (the MS attendant preferred it that way) or if you ever care about my opinion, consume it when it turns soft. Wait for it to thaw for like 20 minutes. I think you can appreciate the flavor more and you don’t run the risk of chipping your chompers.

You will be compelled to buy it, if only for the fact that it looks pretty. If you do I suggest you give in, ’cause these round, colorful temptationsย taste just as good as they looked.

    Hi Guys! For those that tried looking for us, we're located besides the Ice Skating Rink. It's on the same side as Cotton On, so it's on the other side of Jamba Juice.

    Hope to see you guys soon! We'll be opening branches in Rob Galleria (besides Rob Supermarket), SM Megamall (3/F outside of Cotton On) and Eastwood (2F, near Bench) within the month! Please visit us! ๐Ÿ™‚
