I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2015…

Tiramisu-Mascarpone Mochii at THE DESSERT CLUB BY CHIKALICIOUS

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
