Aka Daifuku

I think I'm craving for mochi that's why I brought this aka (red) daifuku last time I was at the Japanese foodshop. Daifuku literally means great luck...but of course I don't buy this for that. I'm never a believer of luck, whether bad or good. 

Daifuku is a type of Japanese cake made of glutinous rice flour, it is somewhat the same as mochi only with filling. This daifuku I got has anko (sweet azuki bean paste) filling.

Though called "red" - it only refers to the azuki beans, the mochi itseld is a lovely pink.

i love this, G!

We call this Tikoy here in our woods. I think they also call it Tikoy in Cebu. Bought a pack of it from a chinese bake shop near Magellan's cross site.

Looks really yummy! When I think of Japanese food, I think of my Japanese brother-in-law who is such a good cook! :)
