Japan is famous for its delicious and savory dishes, including miso soup, various types of ramen and unagi dishes. But their desserts are the real highlight. The Japanese are the original creators of matcha ice cream and any green tea-related dessert.

If you haven’t hard of mochi, this is a good place to learn about it. It’s a special rice cake that’s usually served cold and most of the times it can be frozen. It’s made from Japanese glutinous rice which makes the exterior squishy. In Japanese tradition, it’s usually called mochitsuki.

Different Flavors

Most mochi ice cream desserts are stuffed with fruit ice cream inside and sometimes even adzuki bean. If you’re a fan of strawberry, they’ve got strawberry mochi too. Yum!
