Stuck in a funky rut this weekend. Not sure if it’s the weather or something else. Maybe a little of both.
Just photos and a few words for today
The recently open Mochi Cream stand at Shirokiya, right across from Saint Germain. They came here do to a demo sometime last summer, and it was so popular that they decided to take over a small area downstairs and stay for good. My mom was quite happy about that.
I went back a few times during this trip, and there was always a steady stream of customers – never super busy, but consistent.
Clockwise from top left: Cafe au Lait, Kurogoma Kinako, and Chocolate-Banana.
Cafe au Lait
I eat at Shirokiya for lunch pretty often, bentos, ramen and udon, sweets, sushi…anything!
(even spam musubis ^_^)
It’s the closest thing we have in Hawai’i to the basements of Tokyo deparment stores, and pretty spectacular…you won’t often find anything like this on the mainland.
Sushi “bentos” like this average around $12 – not a bad deal.
Inari sushi stuffed with mochi rice
There was a sweet potato & apple pie demo the other day…
pretty cute, huh?
Post-sushi, pre-mochi cream, dessert!
I always end Shirokiya “meals” with a stop over at Honolulu Coffee Co. on the other side of Ala Moana.
Just a quality cup of coffee is all it takes to make me happy
