I have been here twice now and I love the mochi. My personal favorite is the strawberry shortcake mochi. They have a variety of flavors, some seasonal, some subject to fluctuating prices--strawberry, for example. This place is small and gets crowded due to its popularity. It is wise to order by phone for pickup later. Remember--cash only. If you have... More

The best local-style mochi! We had the an, peanut butter, kinako bites, and of course the strawberry mochi. Here's a tip, buy a second batch of strawberries to refrigerate and then eat. Fresh is best, but if you cool it down the mochi stays soft until next day and the crisp, cold strawberry is a whole different experience.

Best mochi around is happening in this tiny store front. Blink and you'll miss it. Multible varieties of mochi made fresh, or narrow your tastes to your favorite flavor. Fresh poha Berry mochi is our favorite.

The best thing about this place is that there are "specials" and something different every time I go there. You cannot eat there, as it more of a take-out. The Mochi is always fresh and soft with just the right taste. So I like when they have peanut butter fillings, or holiday fillings that are special flavors. The fruit they... More

If you like mochi, you have to go this place! I only tried strawberry, Okinawa sweet potato and Daifuku. All kept traditional flavor in great way.

The fresh strawberry mochi, Anjou pear and grape mochi were really good. The fresh fruit mochi was made to order and was tasty. If you love mochi, you should make a point of stopping by this location.

Two ladies kitchen mocha is TERRIBLE. Their mochi tastes awful. This is not authentic Japanese quality. If you want authentic Japanese taste mochi, go to KTA Superstore Puainako branch and buy their Mountain Apple brand Chi Chi Mochi (12 pack). Now that's what I call AUTHENTIC MOCHI.

You need to call ahead if you want to pick up some really good mochi. I would suggest the large strawberry mochi, it is to die for. If you know what japanese mochi is and picture the jusiest plump strawberry and you have a dynamite combo, I think there is a tinge of chocolate as well. You will not regret... More
