Bubbies - Mochi Ice Cream

Bubbies in Honolulu (University area and Hawaii Kai) serves homemade mochi ice cream in unique island flavors like: azuki, guava, coconut chocolate, mango, passion fruit, sakura, lychee and others like blueberry and strawberry chocolate chip.

I like sakura, azuki, and of course green tea mochi ice cream.

Mikawaya from Little Tokyo, Los Angeles has a little vendor in Shirokiya (Ala Moana mall) but in Honolulu they aren't as popular as on the mainland. Locals like to support their locally owned proprietor, Bubbies.

And...Bubbies was actually featured in Oprah's O magazine. How about that for a locally owned factory? Way to go Bubbies.

{Hawaii folks and So Cal folks may be interested in checking out Mikawaya's large mochi ice cream selection in Irvine. (Flavors like Cappachino, Peach, Hazelnut, Blueberry Creme, Apricot, Tirimisu)}
