The Magic of Mochi

Fancy a little dessert after a night of fine Japanese dining? At our Bellevue sushi restaurant, you can do as the Japanese do and chase your sushi down with some mochi ice cream! These are lumps of real ice cream wrapped up in traditional Japanese mochi, or sweet rice cake. The final product is soft, delicious, and enjoyed far and wide both within Japan and abroad.

The tradition of mochi was introduced to Japan by China. Mochi is such an important dessert item that it is made in a special ceremony called a mochitsuki. The biggest call for mochi comes on the New Year celebration, where mochi of all kinds is traditionally eaten.

At Flo, you can order green tea, strawberry, mango, or coffee mochi. Come and try this unforgettable Japanese treat today!
