When it comes to having fancy pants delicious Japanese food, Mochi turns out to be one of the most sizzling ones in town. Traditional ingredients in combination with international cuisine inspirations are turned into originally designed and innovative food creations here. The place itself is a modest-sized but vibrant one: one dining room with big windows, situated right on Praterstraße, one of the veins of the second district.
The place’s micro-climate is quite special. Somber background light, a bronze, metal installation on the ceiling and the cutting, frying, hissing sounds from the kitchen right behind the bar, make eating here a lively experience with one or another wow!-moment sparkling up your visit.
As the place is a very popular one among foodies it’s sometimes hard to get a table right away. So, in case you’re planning to have dinner here, it’s recommended to make a reservation. Nota bene: for lunch they follow the principle of first come first served.
In any case, don’t let Mochi’s popularity scare you away. Here come the teasers: Hot Mochi Roll (baked Maki roll with unagi, avocado, pepper, tamago and special sauce), Sake and Wafu (lox-sashimi spiced up with wafu-truffle) or Green Tea Crème Brulée. Let the shiny paper lanterns guide you and come have a try of this culinary experience, you won’t regret it.
