    The OG for mochi ice cream! Try out all the flavors here, or get regular ice cream. Either way, you win.

    The mochi here is fantastic, very soft but still wonderfully gummy. Highly recommend the gelato based ones.

    This is the place that makes the ice cream mochi you can find at Trader Joe's. Here, they have ice cream, a handful of ice cream mochi flavors that you can't find at TJs, gelato, and gelato mochi!

    There is a mirror to check your lips to see if there is any powder from the mochi. That's what the mirror is really for.
