So why is everyone queueing in front of this shop? Thatโ€™s because everyone are here for just one thing, it would be their Warabimochi!

Thankfully the queue moves pretty fast, and just a short wait for them to call your number to pickup your order.

I believe everyone been to Japan should be familiar with Warabimochi and finally we can enjoy it right here in Singapore.

The smallest portion available with 5 pieces in one box. Which you need to add on the sweet syrup provided before eating them.l

Honestly, I try it back in Japan and sadly it wasnโ€™t something I enjoy much. I have the same experience here as well. The texture was great but probably just not my taste. Iโ€™m more a muah chee person I guess.

One of the talking point in town now would definitely be this place that constantly attracting queue in front of the shop, with everyone lining up patiently to get their turn to make order at the counter.

Well, since you have spent time queueing, then you would need a drink to cheer yourself up.

This place offered a wide range of drinks such as this refreshing matcha lemonade. Available in either medium or small size.

Warabimochi bites has added to the drink for some texture as you sip on your matcha lemonade.

Paired with their homemade whipped cream topping, azuki and their special kuromitsu warabimochi base, the Asakawa-en Matcha ($5.90/ Small) was not too milky but unfortunately pretty mild in tea flavour. Most of the sweetness came from the caramel-like flavoured mochi which had a texture that reminded me of soft grass jelly. A little bland overall so I would probably stick to getting their warabimochi boxes (limited to 2 per pax).

Rolled in premium kinako (soybean) powder, Warabimochi Kamakuraโ€™s freshly made, hand-cut and hand-tossed mochi was the real deal - I say just go straight for the 10-piece Box ($14.90/ $17.90 wooden) every time. Light, soft and delicately chewy with a silken finish, the warabimochi didnโ€™t taste cloying at all. Though I usually avoid the Kuromitsu, their black sugar syrup was also fragrant and added a very pleasant sweetness. I joined the queue slightly before they opened for the day so many people had the same idea of beating the queue and it was like a 20-minute wait but the snaking line moved pretty fast!

Queued 1hr on the recent public holiday for this viral warabimochi from Japan to understand the hype and it isโ€ฆ understood ๐Ÿ˜‚. But probably not worth the crazy wait in the heat so would say go off peak or to the second outlet where the queue seems shorter.

๐–๐š๐ซ๐š๐›๐ข๐ฆ๐จ๐œ๐ก๐ข (5โญ๏ธ; $7.90) - One of the better textures of mochi available here; soft, lightly chewy and with a melt-in-the-mouth finish. Generously coated with fragrant kinako powder.

For the drinks, we preferred the more unique and refreshing ๐’๐ญ๐ซ๐š๐ฐ๐›๐ž๐ซ๐ซ๐ฒ ๐ฒ๐จ๐ ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ญ (4โญ๏ธ; $7.90) with the tangy creamy yogurt balanced with sweet-sour strawberry mochi and puree. The ๐€๐ฌ๐š๐ค๐š๐ฐ๐š-๐ž๐ง ๐Œ๐š๐ญ๐œ๐ก๐š (3.5โญ๏ธ; $5.90) was aromatic natural-tasting matcha paired with brown sugar chewy mochi. Lo Personally found them to blend less well together than the former. The mochi here was a tad too sweet and overpowered the umami matcha.

They really are good. It's soft yet hadmore bite than normal, it's very voluminous

But honestly, how good can it be? Not worth queueing so long lol. The queue is now reasonable with the opening of their second outlet. It's about 10 ppl long on a weekday night and took about 10-15mins
