Omochi

 

 

rice_cakeA popular confectionery around the New Year’s season in Japan is mochi.  Mochi is often translated to “rice cake”, it can either be more like a soft “rice gummy”, usually stuffed with sugary foods like sweet beans, strawberry, or even ice cream; or like a “condensed rice block”, which is often basted in soy sauce, grilled, and wrapped in seaweed. If you have tried the mochi in Japan, tell us do you like it sweet OR salty flavor of it?:)
