Japanese Desserts? 2005/1/22 08:50
Are there any Japanese desserts? Our Book club wants to serve food to loosely follow theme of Memoirs of a Geisha and don't know what to serve, besides tea...

Is Maccha, green tea powder, available in your town?
If so, how about Maccha pudding adding Maccha instead of vanilla, or just mixing vanilla ice cream with Maccha?

I like cooking, but I am not interested in desserts. From my point of view, Japanese traditional desserts are rather hard to prepare.

In case you can find Maccha, I am glad to help you more.

Thanks for Japanese dessert info 2005/1/27 05:52
Thanks to those who replied about suggestions for Japanese desserts. It sounds like the Japanese people have much healthier eating habits than we Americans, when there are so few dessert options! Thanks again.

MOCHI 2005/2/18 17:56
What is green tea mochi icecream ?

I like Mochi very much. where can I have a cooked mochi in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nara ?

mochi ice cream 2005/2/19 00:10
A Japanese-American bakery in LA developed it. It's a small ball of very soft mochi filled with ice cream. Different flavors: green tea, strawberry, vanilla, coffee, mango, etc. Other brands also make it.

Available at Asian markets and seasonally at Trader Joe's. Trader Joe's just started carrying a green tea gelato--mmmm....smooth...

Another desset idea--top vanilla ice cream with tsubushi an (sweetened, cooked chunky-style azuki beans). Available in cans at Asian grocery or Asian food aisle in regular supermarket.

Serving fruit, especially orange slices is a traditional dessert.

Where can I eat icecream mochi in Tokyo? At any station?

Mao 2005/2/28 01:47
If you like the combination of mochi and ice cream, look for any Japanese style cafe (an-mitsu-ya). They are often located in shopping archades and department stores, and you will know because many of them have fake food displays at the entrance. They will have several dishes combining mochi (to be precise, "shiratama") and ice cream.

Also, sweets combining mochi and ice cream are often available at supermarkets and convenience stores.

"jap" is derogatory 2006/1/5 09:09

Lots of Great Japanese Deserts! 2006/1/6 00:02
I learned that on my recent trip!
Tai-yaki is great. It's also fun to watch the street vendors make it. I like mochi with sweet red beans too.
I tried lots of Japanese deserts and sweets but can't remember the names of most of them. Sorry! One thing about Japanese deserts is that they de not seem as "sweet" as American deserts. So you could eat more than one without feeling like you are having a sugar over-dose. We stopped at a highway rest stop that had a bakery, the variety of sweet breads and rolls was incredible! We bought about 8 varieties and they were all good.

Anmitsu and Daifuku 2006/3/27 10:02
Those are traditional Japanese desserts. Try looking up recipes for them. But, usually, Japanese use fresh fruit for desserts.

I really like Warabimochi. Some kind of mochi like cubes with some yellow bean powder over it and syrupy sauce!

Also, Annin-Dofu ice cream. (Almond Tofu, chinese flavour?) Unbelievably refreshing!

In 2005, I had a cup of shiratama at a small shop in Kamakura. It's great!

In this September, I am going to Tokyo again. Please give me any idea about Anmitsu with icecream in Tokyo.
