How does it taste?

Plump and chewy! The texture is more like straw rice cakes than rice cakes, sticky yet crispy. As you chew and chew, the soft flavor of the tofu gradually spreads.

Because of the long chewing time, it is recommended to form them into smaller pieces because the taste will gradually become bland if you eat a lot of them. I think they are absolutely delicious not only with kinako, but also with kuromitsu or azuki beans! You can also roll it up in nori seaweed and dip it in soy sauce to make it look like isobe mochi.
