Mochi Ice-Cream





He says:

Sweet. Sweet. Sweet.

Stop. Standby. Go.

Still Sweet.

By the way, they taste like medicine with a sugary coat.


I say:

Don't trust him when it comes to dessert.

I was pretty excited when I passed by this Mochi Creamery Outlet that offers over 20 varieties of colourful mochi ice-cream, from azuki, dark chocolate, blueberry, pistachio, passion fruit to unique combination of chocolate coconut, chocolate espresso, strawberry dark chocolate etc.



I had a hard time picking which flavour to sample. The only reason that held me back in trying out all their flavours was that double scoop of Japanese gelatos that I had before stumbling upon this Mochi ice-cream outlet. Talk bout overdose of sugary stuff ever since I came to Singapore.


After thorough consideration, I picked three traffic light colours -- green tea (green), mango (yellow) and sakura (red). Every bite of that dainty dessert was a unique experience for me.

My only complaint was the hefty price tag -- S$2 for a small little cube of ice-cream encased in thin glutinous rice skin. Bar none, I'll still come back for the remaining 17 flavours of their mochi ice-cream.


He, who thinks that he is too hot just because the mochi ice-cream melts in his hand.

See?

Nic (KHKL) said...

the reason he felt hot was because..he really felt hot. cos he was falling sick. perhaps due to a surge in sugar content that day. and he knows a good dessert when he sees one :P

as for this, he chose the red one..which means stop. cos no good..hehe
