Mochi Cream from Cafe COMME ÇA ISM
Mochi ice cream has been around for ages, but there was one shop in particular that we really enjoyed on our last trip to Osaka, so we were happy to run into one again here in Tokyo today. What made these so special was that they were filled with what seemed to be some kind of creamy custard inside rather than stone cold ice cream.
So we were a bit puzzled today when these seemed more like the latter. There were some instructions attached to the bag; it was all in Japanese, but presumably it offered tips on how to keep them and how to let them defrost so that they do become more like that custard-y stuff that we had before. So we probably just needed to let them thaw a bit more. (Can anyone confirm?)
I did notice a shop in Singapore recently (a donut shop, I think?) with a sign promoting something similar, but I immediately dismissed it because it stated that it was ice cream inside. Now I'm starting to wonder if it were the same thing, and if it merely needed a quick exposure to the searing Singapore heat outside first.
