Adventure #118: Nakatanidou Mochi 中谷堂 (Nara)

After we finished lunch at tofu wrapped udon shop in Nara, we stepped out of the restaurant and what did we find round the corner? A shop that sells G's favourite Japanese dessert, mochi (a rice cake typically with red bean paste inside).  It did not only sell mochi, its chefs made the mochi dough on site every half hour or so giving us one of the best shows of this trip.

Chefs pounding mochi.

Freshly made mochi, so fresh it's still warm!

G kept sending the kids back for more.

In G's opinion this was the best mochi he has ever had in his entire life.  Again, it must be pretty darn good then coming from picky G.
