Mochiko is a Cincinnati culinary endeavor that takes inspiration from a style of Japanese cuisine known as “yoshoku,” which incorporates Western recipes with Eastern ingredients and sensibilities. Erik Bentz cooks the savories and Elaine Townsend bakes the sweets.
They’ve already established a cult-like following via their pop-ups and recently had to cancel their event at Oakley Wines after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine ordered the closure of the state's restaurants and bars to the public (take-out and delivery are still OK and encouraged).
Their Instagram post reads, "To be eligible for delivery we do ask that you order at least 4 items, and your location must be within 6 miles of downtown Cincinnati. Order cutoff is at 3pm Saturday. Deliveries will be on Sunday after 11am. Gift cards also available!"
The menu includes creative breakfast treats including cinnamon crunch croissant, a slice of cardamom blackberry cake, a savory Pork Sung Bun, coco jam sticky bun, pear chausson, a buckwheat Ume Kouign Amann, pain au chocolat, orange and honey morning bun, curry chicken pan, Spam Musubi and a plain croissant.
Descriptions for each item are available on the site.
