B-Side Wakai Cafe

Last week, I went to Plaza Indonesia by my self. A menswear which my hubby likes was having a 50% off and that was my visit's purpose until I spotted a new cafe connected with a Japanese fashion's brand, I remember a fellow blogger, Cindy, reviewed it a while ago on her blog so I decided to stop by for a quick bites. 

I like how they did with the place, very "recycle" look a like with all the natural wooden furniture. The display near cashier showcase several selections of baked mochi, Japanese layer cakes and green tea cakes. I ordered a set of 3pcs Chewy baked mochi (24k) and a cup of hot Lemon mint tea (17k). The baked mochi comes in five flavors; Vanilla, red bean, peanut butter, nutella and green tea. I chose peanut butter, nutella and red bean.

I wonder what took them quite a while to serve the mochi as I thought they'd serve it directly from the display. Turns out when it was delivered, the mochi was warm as they heated it first and trust me when I say they were delicious! I love how chewy they were, and when I tore them into two, the generous filling burst out. Yummy! They were all tasty but if I had to choose, I will say I like the peanut butter & nutella the best. I mean... come on, who can say no to peanut butter & chocolate? Literally, if I don't care about what the scale shows, I will eat skippy & nutella every single day!
Personally, I would recommend having the baked mochi with a cup of hot tea like what I did that day. I never use any sugar on my tea so the sweetness from the mochi was a perfect combination with the hot bitter tea. 

My plan to only have a quick visit turns into slightly longer, I really enjoyed my private moment there. I always have a soft spot for places with natural wood element, and this one personally comforts me. To add on my perfect afternoon bites, the service was flawless. Luv!

I'm a new follower on your blog, but I already love the way you describe the food. It was very descriptive, as if it's right in front of me.
