It seems nearly impossible to find any other mochi than mikawaya at supermarket or restaurants. I love mochi and I LOVE ice cream so naturally love mochi ice cream but is it possible that you can't put the 2 together without compromise? I'd hate to think that these maybe its not possible to have great mochi and great ice cream together.
With mikawaya's mochi ice cream, I think the ice cream is kinda artifical tasting and just not very good ice cream. And the mochi just isn't as tender and well textured as non-ice cream mochi.
Is this a lost cause?
