Simply Mochi Remixes a Traditional Japanese Dessert

Posted By on Wed, Apr 14, 2010 at 5:27 PM

We adore San Francisco's old-school mochi overlords Benkyodo, who've been open on and off for more than 100 years and continue to dazzle us with modern interpretations of this Japanese dessert. But recently we've been swayed to cheat on them by Simply Mochi after their appearance last week at the SF Weekly Web Awards. They're made in San Mateo and available for online sale and delivery to San Francisco and cities on the Peninsula and East Bay ($1-$1.50 each, plus delivery fee). We like red bean paste as much as the next person, but we're not gonna front like we wouldn't rather have lemon curd, strawberry cheesecake, or s'mores -- just a snippet of what Simply Mochi offers ― wrapped up in those chewy little orbs.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
