cbb accompanied me, and she had the fabulous idea to stop at mochilato while we were all the way down there. with some directions from claire, we made our way OK in the bear's old 'hood. mochilato serves gelato, mochi + other traditional japanese pastries, and mochi filled with gelato. mmm. oh, and coffee and such, too.
just a quickie recap as i've gotta run to work then to meet the bear for test driving cars tonight! oh yeah, here are some quick photos to keep you cool and drooling.
monaka is my fave.
especially with red bean AND mochi inside.
we tried mango (great), coconut (favorite), pistachio (fragrant),
peaches and cream (white peach flava!), creme brulee (too sweet but good),
peanut butter chocolate (more chocolate than peanut buttery :(),
and mint chocolate (very minty refreshing).
it was not enough for us piggies.
