I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…
Mochi is more common today than ever, but it’s usually inside of ice cream or on top of some frozen yogurt. For the uninitiated, mochi is a chewy, stretchy Japanese rice cake. Almost like a marshmallow, but not as fluffy and with a really unique texture.
My favorite dessert spot in the entire city, Chikalicious, has a West Village location now where they are filling a mochi ball with layers of tiramisu. What could be better? It’s a bite-sized, textured tiramisu ball where Japanese meets Italian pastries. Brilliant!! Price: $5
