Minamoto Kitchoan

June 12, 2014

Mamedaihuku - 2

J's comment > not bad; mochi not as sticky as the sakura mochi below; the texture of the whole red beans sticking out was a nice break from the overall red bean paste / mochi confection, giving it a slight push over the sakura mochi

Sakura Mochi - 2

J's comment > not bad; slightly salted, mochi was the avg sticky rice kind of mochi; didn't get a sakura flavor (not sure if sakura actually has a flavor) but there was red bean in the center

Hanaohto jelly - 2

J's comment > jelly was very soft but not much cherry flavor, rather there was surprisingly alcoholish tinge to this jelly, or perhaps there was some fermentation of the fruit going on?

Matcha white chocolate mochi - 2

J's comment > the chocolate was actually hard in the center, I thought and would have preferred it melted and whipped into the mochi; matcha flavor not too strong

Minamoto Kitchoan on Urbanspoon

Extra Note
These are actually called 'wagashi' and are traditional Japanese sweets, usually served in the Japanese tea ceremony.

BTW, I got some more wagashi to take back to Vancouver, so when I try same, I'll post their pics and reviews here.
