You can mochi in lots of places, but this one often has it in either ice cream or gelato. Various choices of flavors and they are all good. $1.50 each.

The Service: few staffs working behind the counter. Only a few table/chairs inside the store. The Food: Just taste like frozen mochi in the market frozen section. The mochi doesn't taste that soft. But price is cheap! The Parking: Parking structure.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
