Akachan no Hoppe is a brand hailing from Itoigawa, Niigata prefecture of Japan that specializes in making authentic Japanese pastries with a modern twist. All the pastries are fresh as they are made daily.
Akachan no Hoppe means “baby cheeks” in Japanese. And why use the name ‘baby cheeks’? This is because their mochi or better known as mo.cheeks is very soft and fluffy, just like baby cheeks.
Recently, Akachan no Hoppe opened its first outlet in Malaysia. This Akachan no Hoppe kiosk sells various flavors of mochi (mochi stuffed with cream filling). The kiosk is located on the 3rd Floor at the Centre Court of Mid Valley, Megamall.

This display counter with various flavours of mochi.
There are currently 10 unique flavours of mochi: Red Bean, Green Tea, Black Sesame, Edamame, Japanese Plum, Double Chocolate, Strawberry Love, Melty Caramel, Tropical Pineapple and Jungle Banana. According to their website, this The Jungle Banana flavor is available for a limited time only.
The mochi are priced at RM3.80 each.
Tropical Pineapple (RM3.80 each)
Black Sesame (RM3.80 each)
This mochi is packed full with flavor, the skin is dewy soft and not thick at all. Love it!
These delicious mo.cheeks are best to purchase as gifts because it comes in a nice box packaging but you need to purchase a minimum of six mochi to get a box. It’s really not hard as there are 10 different flavours to choose from 😉
You have the option of getting it frozen so that you can enjoy it at home or straight from the chiller of which you can enjoy it right away.
In conjunction with their grand opening, they are currently having this promotion: Buy 10 pieces of mo.cheeks and get one additional piece for FREE (for a limited time).
Starlet Crystal Lee 李馨巧 loves Akachan no Hoppe Double Chocolate Mochi too!
Nicholas 翁书尉 from OneFM couldn’t resist this delicious Mochi too!
Verdict: I really enjoyed the mo.cheeks and will definitely be back for more.
