Get ready for a dash of chewy goodness as the famous Japanese chain opens its first Southeast Asia outlet in Holland Village on February 3.
Gather ya’ all, mochi lovers! Here’s a special treat that’s way beyond the typical chewy Japanese mochi experience. Made with bracken starch instead of the usual glutinous rice, Japan’s famous warabi mochi—a delicate and jelly-like sweet—is set to add a delectable twist to Singapore’s growing gastronomic scene, promising a delightful fusion of texture and flavor.
Starting February 3, Singaporeans and mochi lovers will have the chance to indulge in the traditional delight of warabi mochi as Warabimochi Kamakura opens its newest outlet in Holland Village. This is a perfect opportunity, especially for those who have been craving this treat, as it is quite difficult to find shops specializing in this kind of mochi.
Japan’s Famous Warabimochi Kamakura Chain Opens in Singapore
Serving goodness since 1991, Warabimochi Kamakura has flourished with 50 bustling outlets in Japan, attracting long queues of eager patrons. Following its successful ventures overseas in Hong Kong and Canada, the renowned establishment has now extended its presence to Southeast Asia, marking its debut in Singapore with its first outlet.
Bringing the classic charm of Warabimochi Kamakura to Singapore means giving excited customers a taste of traditional mochi—served with a dusting of kinako powder, meticulously roasted for a deeper and richer flavor, along with the sweetness of Okinawan brown sugar kuromitsu syrup. Sold at $7.90 (5 pieces) and $14.90 (ten pieces) per box, you can have the option to try the regular packaging or elevate the overall experience by trying out the premium presentation in a traditional paulownia wood box, available at $17.90 for ten pieces.
Of course, aside from their traditional warabi mochi that brings that silky mouthfeel, there’s actually a reason why this Japanese shop is such a hit: their aesthetic dessert drinks. These drinks are loaded with tiny pieces of warabi mochi, perfect for slurping with a bubble tea straw. With flavors like Strawberry Yogurt, Strawberry Milk, Asakawa-en Matcha, Coffee Milk, Houjicha, Lemonade, and Matcha Lemonade, you’ll surely find a refreshing and delicious beverage to satisfy your taste buds among the enticing options at this Japanese shop.
For its opening, Warabimochi Kamakura offers a one-for-one promotion for its Coffee Milk, Asakawa-en Matcha, Strawberry Yogurt/ Milk, and Tenku No Hojicha Warabimochi drinks from February 3 to 5, with a limit of two redemptions per person. For those who are trying it out for the first time and want a sample of the famous warabi mochi, they also provide ice cream cup options. Opt for the 2-piece cup at $3.90 or indulge in the version with a scoop of ice cream for $5.90.
Don’t miss out on the grand opening of Warabimochi Kamakura on February 3. Feel free to visit the newly opened dessert shop at 7 Holland Village Way, #01-54 One Holland Village. Enjoy!
