These are some amazing Japanese sweets! Beautiful to admire, delicious to eat, expensive to pay - but worth it for the experience or for a unique gift. There's a large variety to choose from and so gorgeous it's hard to decide. Not sure what to get? They have gift assortments at various price points and these make a nice starter.... More
The store was very pretty. I had a hard time deciding what to buy. I bought different bits and pieces to try. I also bought a small mango mochi and requested they gift wrap it. The lady was so nice and she wrapped it so prettily and for free, too. I particularly liked the mochi flavored items. Would recommend it... More
A beautiful little shop for your top-of-the-line omiyage (Japanese gift) needs. Delicious dongos, cookies, cakes, and Japanese treats with superior service. A far more pedestrian (and inexpensive) option would be Dainobu on W 56th.
Minamoto Kitchoan is a clean and elegant place. The treats are too sweet for my liking, but a nice splurge for someone with a sweet tooth. The products would make delightful gifts for any occasion. My issue came with the treatment I received during my last visit. The staff was helping customers when I arrived. Not a problem. Though I... More
Minamoto is a fanastic find not far from MOMA . The staff speaks more Japanese than English, which is a good sign because their mochi is also truly Japanese , made to perfection. It's a treat to go in this store, and if you have never had a Japanese bean cake or mochi, this is where you want to buy... More
If you haven't had the real mochi--not the prepackaged in plastic kind--you should stop by for a sample. It is so delicate, soft and it will remind you of mochi you can buy in Japan. Try the green tea and also the white peach. Don't forget to stop at Royce (silky smooth Japanese chocolate) right next door for more samples!!
This was a very interesting sweet shop. I am always intrigued by authentic Japanese sweet shops. The way they display their samples is unique. We bought an assortment of items from this shop. Some were great, some were odd. We had: Hakutou Jelly - the hubby liked this, it wasn't my favorite. It was too sweet and had too much... More
This really is a special bakery shop! They have all sorts of traditional red bean, green tea mochi and other kinds that will just blow you out of the water! I really haven't been to another Japanese bakery like this place, and its a great place to treat yourself to some sweet snacks or buy some for gifts! Totally worth... More
If you are a Mochi lover (and I don't mean the little mushy bits that people put on their Pinkberry Ice cream...), you have GOT to try Minamoto Kitchoan. Even if you don't like Mochi (or never tried it), you should walk in just for the beautiful display. Every piece is artfully displayed, perfectly decorated, and--if you eat it--amazingly delicious.... More
