    Well yeah off topic so I am allowed to ask i think :P

    I often buy Asian stuff at a near asia market but normaly i tend to allways buy what i already know so no problem, now i bought some Sakura Mochi and dunno ... no clue how exactly they are eaten

    [​IMG]


    do you actually eat those leaves as well ? i have heard wild cherry is poisonous and as for what i know "Sakura" is wild Cherry, but there are only the leaves so yeah are these to give taste to the mochi just by beeing around it for a while or are they eaten as well ?




    ----


    bought some japanese glass noodels before and it seems i did something wrong they were horrible so yeah better ask before i get into hospital due to food poisoning XD

    Now that the twelve year olds have had their chance to voice their dislike of leafy greens, let's see what teh intrawebz has to say.


    So, make sure it's really sakura mochi, and then nibble on a corner of a leaf to see if you like it.

    hmm ok thanks just tried it in the hope that it really is sakura mochi, but from the looks of the leaf it seems to be the correct one XD

    tasted somehow a little bit like ... well dunno ... normal salad maybe.

    dunno if its because of the brand or because its an industrie product or because of me but the leaf was the best of it :P somehow the mochi wasn't that good -.-V

    Thanks Veho !


    P.S. just noticed veho is the only one who spelled leaf correctly man now i feel bad for making anyone write in a wrong way :P

    I'm sorry but...the plural of "Leaf" is "Leaves".

    Gramma nazi, AWAY!

    Yes, the leaves are edible. They taste a little salty for some reason, but it's a nice complementary balance to the sweetness of the sakura mochi.

    *EDIT1*
    I only read the first two responses (didn't make it to Veho's) and assumed they were all going to be like that.

    Leave it to Veho for accurate info :)

    *EDIT2*
    Damn I want some sakura mochi now :(

    lol ok I was like "i know [leaves] so this might be the writing" than i have read Veho's post and the link and everything written [leaf] me "oh fu thats right thats how it has to be" but oh well seems if what you say is correct i did it intinuitively corret (even thaught i believe every other word i write is completely wrong my english sucks so bad -.-V)

    ok back to topic.

    Yeah I was like "SAKURA MOCHI !!!!! YAY XD" but well these are not that good, from the majority of pictures in the net they normaly do even look tastier.
    more like that

    But well ... i was in that Asia store and when i saw i had only Korean stuff even thaught i went there to buy Japanese food i just had to search for something "interesting" from Japan.


    To get a little bit off topic, any nice Asian food (preferably sweets or cracker) you would suggest trying ?

    i for one ALLWAYS buy these Roasted Green Peas with rice flour

    I usually go for japanese crackers, regarding sweets one that I eat quite often (there's a japanese bakery in the center of the city) are manjus... I just love them, not too sweet, not too sour... They go great with tea. ^^

    The leaf is just there so your fingers don't get sticky. You aren't supposed to eat the leaf, but it is edible. Much like parsley sprigs at a restaurant.

    But since the question has already been answered a few times, may I make a few suggestions? These are some of my personal favorite Japanese snack foods:

    Hi-Chew (any flavor)
    Crunky Bar
    Ramune Candy
    Lotte Black Black gum
    Shrimp Crackers
    Glico Cream Collon
    Kompeito
    Melty Kiss (all flavors)
    Peko-Chan Milky
    Meiji Poifull (awesome jelly beans)

    As far as Pocky goes, I can only recommend Almond Crush, since every other flavor I tried was meh at best.
    If you like to play with your food, check out the popin' cookin' stuff. It tastes kinda crappy, but it makes some realistic looking "fake food"
