Soho’s New Fancy Mochi Ice Cream Spot Is Here — and More Openings
New York-based ice cream company Mochidoki arrived in Soho this afternoon with its first retail store. In addition to a seasonal menu of flavored mochi, which will cost $3 each, the adorably named ice cream company is selling more elaborate creations, including one version made with mochi, black sesame paste, and an edible cup made of dark chocolate. The menu here has been designed in coordination with Michael Laiskonis, the former pastry chef of big-splurge restaurant Le Bernardin, so don’t be shocked if Mochidoki’s matcha lattes come topped with gold leaf. (They do.) The ice cream shop will also sell cold brew, matcha, matcha lattes, and hot teas.
