I've got a few posts about Shu Shin Bou's products including the God's fruit and daifuku, and this morning I just dropped by their shop in the the world square complex to try their new product, Mochi dumpling, priced at $2 each.
Well, it's more like mochi than dumpling, it's not that kind of dumpling you'd find when you have yum cha and it's not like an ordinary mochi in small ball shape with cornstarch dusting. This mochi dumpling wrapped in bamboo leaves just like Chimaki (Japanese glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves or also known as Chinese rice dumpling or called bah-chang in my hometown).

Definitely it doesn't taste like bah-chang :) The transparent texture is chewy just like normal mochi and the filling is more like ice cream, overall it tastes good and fresh as a desert, especially for one who loves mochi like me. They come with 4 different fillings: taro, red bean, kiwi fruit and cranberries, next time I am gonna try the taro and red bean ones.
