Ever bite into a piece of food that makes you lick your lips and declare THIS IS THE BEST THING I'VE EVER EATEN? Well....the Green Mochi IS NOT IT for me.
Saturday night, hubby and I were invited to a friend's house for dinner. She was trying out some new recipes, mostly Indian, but with an East Asian dessert -- the MOCHI...
First the first moment I picked up the little green ball I knew I was in for it. I couldn't place my finger on it, but the texture was something I was familiar with. Then I bit into it. The center was filled with dark green stuff -- like puss, but darker (the consistency was the same).
Other dinner guests also weren't loving the Mochi. We discovered we could kind of play with it by stretching it out like Play Doh; the Mochi took on a life of its own.
The one thing that kept nagging me was the outside texture of this snot ball...then....it finally hit me...it felt like Slime, the stuff you got as a kid in the vending machine. Yup. it did.
I apologize to any people who are huge fans of the Mochi. It's just not my thing.
