Mochiko Mochi Ice Cream [Mercato Centrale]
I am officially ticking off #13 in my Birthday Wishlist. Thanks to Mercato Centrale, I've been able to satisfy my mochi ice cream craving without having to travel to Tagaytay.
Good thing though that we were early for Midnight Mercato so I was still able to get myself some because Mochiko almost always runs out of mochi ice cream early both on the daytime and night time shifts.
With Japanese origin, the regular mochi is made from glutinous rice flour. I usually have it with my ginataang halo-halo (as the bilo-bilo) or as a topping in my frozen yogurt. Having it filled with a variety of ice cream flavors is just wow!
Sold for Php70 apiece, it is quite expensive but surely a must-try. However, I suggest you eat it right away (well, after their suggested 2 minutes thawing time) to keep the dough chewy. I've experienced a lot of times taking home these goodies (and putting them back inside the freezer) only to have very thin and dry coating of mochi afterwards. How I wish the mochi is a little thicker.
|Flavors I got: Chocolate, Green tea, Strawberry, Black Sesame, Mango, Azuki|
I love the green tea flavor! I was wary of the Azuki flavor at first but it turns out to be great also. Funny, but I was thinking of Hopia the whole time I was eating it. Teehee.
|Green Tea - see the insides...|
Mochiko Mochi Ice Cream is a unique dessert/snack that even my son, nephews and nieces love! No wonder you'll often catch long lines in their MC booth.
