Peanut Mochi Bread @ Cloverleaf Bakery (Temple City)

ipsedixit | Sep 23, 201011:34 AM     9

Do you like the salty and crunchy?

Do you like the QQ-ness of mochi?

Do you like the chewy and crispy?

Yes, yes, and yes?

Well then, my friend, get thee quickly to Cloverleaf Bakery. And order up yourself a big box of their Peanut Mochi Bread.

What is Peanut Mochi Bread, you ask?

Well, it's a ball of soft, chewy mochi, that's embedded with crunchy peanuts (with a hint of salt), encased in a buttery pillow of soft and chewy bread.

Pick it up, tap on it a bit and it almost sounds like you're knocking on a chestnut, and it smells almost as delectable as a freshly roasted one.

Then you take a bite. And you can feel your knees weaken.

You hear the crunch of the bready outlayer, which sounds surprisingly reminiscent of that first bite of the crust of a pie from Pizzeria Mozza. Then the chewy smooth texture of the mochi meets your lips, and then as you chew that first bite everything just comes together -- the bread, the mochi, the peanuts -- into one great synergistic nirvanic moment.

It's almost too good to swallow.

Available after noon, line forms at 6 a.m. and wristbands handed out after 9 a.m. (ok, kidding about the lines and wristbands, but not the noon part).

$1.50 per.

Cheers.
