Oy! Bubbies Mochi Ice Cream is So Ono!

So I get a kick out of reading that what started out as a tiny ice cream shop across the street from the Varsity Theatre and a stone's throw from the Univ of Hawaii campus has become a wholesaler that sends mochi ice cream to Manhattan! Mmm... I have fond memories of many a Multiple Orgasm at Bubbies. That's the signature three-layer ice cream cake at Bubbies, btw.

We’re talking about the magic of mochi, a chewy dough made from pounding glutinous rice that’s traditionally filled with something sweet and baked. For years, regulars at Nobu have been whispering “the mochi” to conclude a satisfying meal. But lately the gospel is spreading. Mochi-wrapped ice cream is at Whole Foods, and it’s available as a topping at the frozen-yogurt chain Pinkberry. It’s also popping up at restaurants like David Chang’s Momofuku Ssäm Bar in Manhattan, which offers four types of mochi ice creams from Bubbies in Hawaii. Chang’s verdict? “So damn delicious.”
