Tian Xia Xiao Chi Muah Chee 1

For a hawker stall selling only Muah Chee – the sticky glutinous rice, it has to be good.

Muah Chee or Mochi is a prevalent snack at Japan, South Korea and Taiwan, the ball shape or cube shape with various sweet fillings can be additive with its chewy and soft texture. Local muah chee usually do not have the filling but instead of dusted with a layer of ground peanut or sesame, just like what Tian Xia Xiao Chi presented.

Tian Xia Xiao Chi moved away from the traditional muah chee way of using scissors cutting, the plate of irregular size and shape muah chee coated with coarse peanut powder is considered an archaic method to Tian Xia Xiao Chi, who has decided to give the local Muah Chee a hipster twist.

Tian Xia Xiao Chi muah chee is deftly cut into 1 cm cube and tossed in finely ground peanut or sesame. We opted for the “Yuan Yang” that come with both the peanut and sesame flavour and served in a nice boat shape plate, the muah chee is chewy and soft, plenty of ground peanut and sesame, brown sugar is used instead of white sugar for a more subtle taste of sweetness.

Our verdict on Tian Xia Xiao Chi
