What is Mochi Ice Cream?

Chef Erwin serves yet another spectacle on the new Seasonal Specials menu, Matcha Green Tea Mochi Ice Cream alongside of Persimmon cheesecake. What is Mochi ice cream? Well, the sum of two simple, yet delicious parts: Mochi and Ice Cream. Authentic Mochi Ice Cream is made using a secret family recipe that has been passed down for over three generations. Experience tradition with authentic Asian matcha green tea flavor and soft mochi rice dough.

Creating Mochi, a chewy Japanese dessert made from sticky mochigome rice, requires the ingredients to be first thoroughly pounded into a thick paste. You can use a machine to do it, or like the Japanese chefs in the video below, you can risk a broken finger by pounding it manually in a flawlessly choreographed routine.

 The speed at which these chefs pound the mochigome rice is mind-boggling. But what’s harder to comprehend is how that one guy’s hands aren’t covered in bandages and casts.


A WORD FROM THE CHEF – On a bi-weekly basis Chef Erwin prepares some of the most popular seasonal specials from North Europe which he creates from scratch with the freshest and finest ingredients and products at the time.
