Long-standing Japanese ice cream & sweets shop famed for its various flavors of mochi rice cakes.- Google
"The ice-cream mochi is much more firm and the gelato mochi melted a lot faster."
"Toasted almond mochilatto is tasty."

This is my go-to spot for mochi ice cream. There is a large selection of flavors to choose from. My favorites are the coffee, chocolate, and cookies and cream flavored mochi. I usually get a few flavors and cut it into small pieces to get a taste of all the different flavors. The ice-cream mochi is much more firm and the gelato mochi melted a lot faster. The workers are also all friendly. You can try the various gelato/ice cream flavors available too.

It's a nice place to stop by when you're walking around in Little Tokyo :) $1 mochi ice cream is a bit pricey but not a bad deal if you want to try different flavors. What my sis and I ordered: - Green tea mochi ice cream is still my number one (red beans too). - Creme brule mochi ice was too subtle, it tasted like vanilla ice cream. - Peaches & Cream mochi ice was pretty good, I approve! - Guava mochi ice was ok. The ice cream was great but it was a weird combo with the sweet mochi Get some napkins if you're going to walk around and eat.

Perfect little dessert stop! I've always loved the mochi ice cream sold in boxes as a kid, but then found out they opened up a shop right in the Little Tokyo plaza. I love that the mochi is freshly stuffed with ice cream or gelato here, and they offer more flavors than available in stores. Priced at $1 or $1.25, they're the perfect dessert portions that also let you try more of their great flavors. Yum!

We were watching Kid in a Candy Store on the Food Network. They were showing this place in Los Angeles that makes pudding, yogurt and ice cream to order with any flavor you can almost think of. It seemed like a good idea, and it was!! We stopped in on a cold afternoon so the place was not busy. We both ordered our own mixtures in ice cream. She had them made up in about 10 minutes. It was very well worth the wait. It was really good. It was interesting to watch how each item was made and then when they add the liquid nitrogen it is even more interesting. We do plan on going back as it was worth the trip. If it is a nice day, you may have to plan on a wait. I am sure it will be worth it.

Today was spent strolling the cobblestone walkways of Little Tokyo, LA. It was a warm toasty day with the sun shining high in the sky. We decided to visit Mikawaya; a tiny dessert shop where confections like Mochi ice cream, gelatos, rainbow shaved ice and the traditional japanese pound cake can be purchased. I had the amazing guava sorbet, which came in a cute flower shaped miniature cup. It was super sweet and refreshing. A perfect way to kick off the spring months coming up. I’m in love with tropical fruits so this dessert was absolute perfection. Plus, it was an adorable pale pink color…my favorite :) I’d say this was a successful weekend trip. I’m dying to come back to check out the Four Leaf cafe we passed by on the way.

Excellent Mochi, and quite large - the black sesame was exactly as you would expect, the red bean different but in a good way. If you are in Japan Town and after dessert you should definitely come here.

They serve the mochi Ice creams you can get at basically any supermarket, but they also serve Mochilato. I first tried Mochilato in Irvine and I believe their flavors are really good. Try both the Mikawaya classic flavors and the Mochilato flavors to get a feel for the variety of mochi ice cream you can get.

Great service and the prices are worth it. I bought 2 trays of different flavors of mochi and they were very delicious.
