Asomi Mochi might be the most popular spot at the Richmond Night Market

There are dozens of incredible food and beverage vendors this year at the Richmond Night Market, but one has been flooding our Instagram feeds in the best way possible (and no, we don’t mean those amazing rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches).

Asomi Mochi might not be deep-frying, techno-colouring, or stacking its offerings on a sky-high stick, but people are LOVING its treats this year.

This purveyor was at the market last year, but it’s new popular flavour, cheesecake mochi, has seemingly put it in seriously high demand, and it’s not uncommon for the booth to run out of treats before a market weekend ends.

This spot makes its mochi fresh every morning and several flavours are available at the night market this year including cheesecake, purple yam, chocolate, regular, matcha, and double strawberry.

The mochis all contain fresh whole strawberries inside and are nut, preservative, and gluten-free.
