Cheung Chau Ping Kee is a tiny food store in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong (next to Central) that serves some of the most delicious mochi that we have ever eaten. The store started life on Cheung Chau Island which is just a short ferry ride from Hong Kong and a great place to visit for the vibrant seafood served in the harbourside restaurants. Visitors to the island would line up at the tiny mochi store to buy these delicious orbs made from steamed glutinous rice with fillings such as mango or red bean paste. Luckily they have now opened a branch in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong Island so you do not have to take the ferry ride to enjoy these treats.
We thoroughly enjoyed a mochi from this store that was a perfect example of mochi making with the sticky moorish "pastry" enclosing a paste made from that wonder fruit enjoyed throughout tropical Asia called Durian. A culinary delight!
