Update Oct 3, 2009: The Aberdeen location of this restaurant has since been shut down. The non-restaurant location at Lansdowne is still open though.
Reader Holly has been paying attention. She noticed that I love chewy foods, so she suggested that I go try Aberdeen Centre’s Van Cheong Tea Palace’s Green Tea Mochi.
So I did.
They were some pretty amazing stuff! It was very very fragrant of Jasmine Green Tea, as opposed to Japanese Machi Green Tea.
This was a welcome change though. Mainly because this mochi is so richly flavored with it.
We also like it because it’s not too sweet, although pairing it with actual Jasmine Green Tea would be perfect.
They were also sufficiently chewy for me. I could probably finish a whole pack if I didn’t control myself. I love how they’re so *squishy* *squishy*.
What I didn’t love though, was how non-environmental the packaging is, as with most Asian snack foods packaging. I guess this keeps each individual piece fresh though, as opposed to stuffing them all into one big bag and having half dried out if you happen to not gobble up the whole pack.
You get 3 packs for $10, or as Holly says, $5 each. If you like mochi like I do, get 3 packs :).
