Sorry for the silence. It’s been a frenetic week for atetoomuch, what with A being ill since National Day, then being hospitalized for a (false) dengue alarm. Well, thanks to everyone for their concern – we’re back now and can’t wait to pick up where we left off.
This is quite a random post, but worth a mention all the same. This hole-in-the-wall dessert shop at Market Street Car Park sells some bizarre concoctions, like peanut balls in rosebud syrup, and hawthorn nata de coco. To be honest, when they opened in late 2006, I didn’t really give them a second thought, and figured they wouldn’t last very long. Well, they’re still around and seem to be doing better than I thought. Y told me she saw quite a few boxes of their mochi when she went for lunch today, but by the time I was there at 7 pm after work, they only had a solitary box left. An assortment of 5 flavours – yam, red bean, peanut, sesame and green tea – for $3.50. Apparently their mochi is hand-made by a Japanese chef daily.
I must say it was surprisingly good. They’re quite generous with the filling, and the mochi itself is very light and soft. The only one that was a bit so-so was the yam, which was lacking in filling as well as flavour. The red bean is a winner, as is the green tea one. The sesame and peanut ones are like most ah ballings, but still no less tasty.
Y said they sell assortments as well as single-flavour boxes, so I guess one has to go early to be able to choose.
