Pair these unique ice cream flavours with Gelatolabo's signature Tokyo Mochi Waffles ($7.60) for the perfect dessert! Hand made with Nippon flour and mochi, these waffles are perfectly crusted on the outside with the softest and chewiest filling. This dessert is best eaten served hot and piping straight from the oven, but Gelatolabo offers delivery for frozen mochi waffles and ice cream pints as well! Place your orders here and follow the instructions on reheating the waffles to enjoy them in the comfort of your home!

The Better Scoop presents a unique twist on mochi waffles, substituting the chewy mochi for its slightly sweeter counterpart - Nian Gao, a Chinese New Year staple we are all familiar with. Prepared from glutinous rice flour, this sweet sticky rice cake goes perfectly with the light and airy waffles, adding an extra dimension of texture to the dessert.

Famed for their croissants, Brotherbird Bakehouse is yet another store serving up mochi desserts. However, instead of mochi waffles, you may expect other variations of mochi desserts here, including mochi croissants and donuts. Enjoy croissants infused with glutinous rice flour, resulting in pastries with a crispy exterior and chewy, buttery layers within. Aside from their original mochi croissant, expect a variety of other flavours, including matcha, lemon meringue and rocher chocolate.
