I'm not really sure if I'm the only person in Hawaii drawing a connection between fall and the most recent string of Bubbies creations (see: Chocolate Cinnamon ice cream), but I'm telling you, this apple pie mochi ice cream fits so well. For those who have never had it before, mochi is a sweet and sticky dessert made from Japanese rice flour. Sometimes it's plain, but often times it's filled with azuki beans, red beans, or, as in this case, ice cream. It's been a humid and hot end of September for Honolulu and I can't think of a better way to take up the fall mood than with such a comforting cold treat.
Well, maybe this and a good punch. Hm. I think that might need to come.
So this looks gross, but I swear, it's actually really delicious. In a brilliant moment, Dave came up with the idea of adding haupia ice cream (made with real coconut milk) to A&W Rootbeer. Unlike ice cream with real milk, the soda doesn't get all chunky. Instead, it's one smooth sip of frothy coconut.
Oh. Em. Gee.
$5.50 for the whole plate!
On another note, I saw a friend who was also getting lunch at the truck. "Are you going to put this on your food blog?" he asked me.
