When craving for some sweets, mochi would be my number 1 choice. Comparing with other Japanese mochi chain stores, this particular Hakka Mochi Food Stand near XingTian Temple is quite special.
以下為購買的理由. There are the following reasons that you should purchase:
除了日本外 , 中國, 台灣 ,甚至新加坡都有自己國家特色的麻糬,日本麻糬外皮非常黏, 通常也不會裹任何粉, 但是台灣客家麻糬則是有較硬的外皮且外皮有裹著花生粉. Mochi is actually a common sweet all over Asia, such as China, Japan, Taiwan and Singapore. All types of Mochi are made from sticky rice. Most people are familiar with Japanese Mochi, which is more gooey. Hakka Mochi, which is the Taiwanese authentic mochi, is covered with peanut powder and the surface is a bit stiff.
麻糬餡通常都是紅豆和綠茶, 這家攤位內餡則是有花生 ,芝麻, 椰香, 芋頭和紅豆, 當你拿起第一顆麻糬 ,就已經聞到花生香味 ,咬下第一口時, 餡料多到滿出來, 讓你初次體驗到味覺與口感都充滿花生香味!
Most mochi stores only have red bean and green tea fillings. This place has peanut, sesame, coconut, taro, and of course red bean flavors. You would smell the peanut aroma before you put the mochi in the mouth. After you have the first bite, the filling starts falling out. You have no choice but finish one mochi in about 30 seconds. Eating experience can give you the double satisfactions.
只能說新鮮就是好吃 ,畢竟需要排隊購買 ,有單才開始做.
Did I mention that you have to line up for getting the hand-made Hakka Mochi? There are 2 ~ 3 people behind the stand. They only make the mochi when there is order.
通常有店面的麻糬市價大約 NTD $30, 這家一顆才$10, 由於怕客人點太多, 限購兩盒, 但是會送一顆隨機口味的麻糬.
One piece only costs NTD $10 (USD$0.33). However, the limited quantity will be 2 boxes (6 pcs/box). You can also get one random flavor mochi if you purchase 2 boxes
Please note that this food stand is closed on Monday. Also, if they sell out the mochi, they will close down the stand. My best suggestion is to get there to line up before 5pm.
