This is one of those kind-of-weird desserts that is strangely addictive. A Japanese-style dessert, these are similar to traditional mochi – with a chewy sticky rice “dough” covering an ice-cream center. The Whole Foods on Pennsylvania Ave. always has a self-serve mochi bar with rotating selection of flavors – Asian (sesame, green tea, lychee), traditional (chocolate, vanilla, coffee) and fruit (mango, strawberry). Around $2/mochi, they are not cheap, but they are certainly an experience!
