Foursquare Tips

  • An unassuming 100+ year old landmark in Japantown makes the best fresh mochi in the bay. When I'm craving sugar and carbs, their peanut butter mochi hits the spot. - Mia, Digital Marketing Coordinator
  • Try the fresh strawberry mochi. I am a mochi expert on Foodspotting, and I declare it to be the best ever! The strawberry is wrapped in white bean paste and is covered with super soft mochi. - Alexa
