Got recommended this bakery from a news article, and I loved the Asian influence on the pastries and desserts. The mochi texture of everything brought me back to my favorite childhood treats! Nothing was too sweet either, which is the hallmark of Asian dessert. I came at around 11:30 on Sunday, and there was no line and nothing seemed to be sold out yet. Will definitely come back the next time I'm in the area! Original mochi muffin (5/5): Super yummy with a nice sesame full review
So this place was good, but I wouldn't necessarily wait 20 min in line again. The line did move quickly enough as we were not in a rush. I thought their donuts were okay. Mochi muffins were better. Their iced beverages best. We tried a bit of everything and def enjoyed it all. We actually liked the original flavors the best. Ube ones were good too. I would go back if the line wasn't long. Would go back and try their banana mochi bread next time! No seating inside. Some outside.
My first time here so I had to ask the question - what's the difference between a muffin and donut? The guy thoroughly explained that the muffins have the flavor dispersed and more of a chew, while the donut is the same butter mochi as the base and the different flavors are the glaze on top. Muffins -original: my favorite of the three that I tried. The coconut pandan flavor was the most pronounced -black sesame, ube: good but the flavors of each could be stronger Donuts full review
