Mochi desserts and bread in Singapore
The mochi trend has taken a life of its own. Today, the Japanese rice cake can be found in all shapes and forms, from viral mochi ice cream to chewy mochi doughnuts. We’ve curated a list of 16 places to get mochi desserts in Singapore—read on to find out where to get your mochi fix!
1. Spuds & Soda

Home-based business Spuds & Soda made waves when they launched in 2021, selling handmade warabimochi in unique flavours such as Bandung ($10.80) and Teh-O. Unlike run-of-the-mill mochi that’s made from glutinous rice, the Japanese confectionery is made with starch for a more delicate, jelly-like bite. For those who prefer classic Japanese flavours, get the Houjicha ($11.60) or Matcha ($11.60) instead.
They’ve recently opened a pickup location along Jalan Jurong Kechil, a three-minute walk from Beauty World MRT Station, making it more convenient for Westies to collect their mochi goodies. For updates, visit their IG!
Address: 68 Jalan Jurong Kechil, #01-04/05, Singapore 596180
Collection hours: Wed-Sun 12pm to 8pm
When done correctly, mochi is irresistibly soft and chewy. That’s what we encountered at MuYoo, a popular bakery that does mochi-filled buns. Their Black Sesame Mochi ($2.80) boasts an IG-worthy mochi pull matched with an earthy black sesame filling. There’s also a QQ Earl Grey Custard ($2.00), which comes with fragrant earl grey notes infused in the dough and filling.

Opening hours: Daily 9am to 10pm
For ab alternative take on the traditional Japanese mochi, try the Pandan Mochi Waffle ($8) from Glacier, a botanical-themed cafe in Jalan Besar. This green-hued, pandan-spiked waffle has stretchy mochi within, so you’re getting crisp edges with a QQ texture within.
Pair it with a scoop of Blue Pea Lemongrass Pandan ($5) gelato to elevate the pandan notes, or go for the Oolong Osmanthus ($5) for a light floral aftertaste.

WTV Food SG is one of those home-based business success stories. What started out as an online shop in July 2021 has since evolved to an actual store in Joo Chiat, called Dochi Dochi. Here you’ll find bite-sized mochi doughnuts AKA dochi, a term coined by the brand. Choose from a wide range of savoury and sweet flavours, including Parmesan Garlic Butter ($12), Maple Osmanthus ($9), and Kaya-Lah ($9). You get 10 pieces in each tray.

Home-based bakery Mamafang offers made-to-order steamed mochi buns in old-school flavours such as yam, sweet potato, and red bean. These palm-sized buns are made without preservatives, using natural ingredients only, so you can expect maximum freshness.
Prices start at $20 for a box of six mochi buns, and go up depending on the flavours you choose. A popular order is the Matcha Mochi Mix ($22), which comes with three Matcha Mochi Buns and another three of your choice. Keep your eyes peeled on their IG page for updates on new launches!
Rakki is a small home-based bakery with only one item on their menu: mochi-filled milk buns. Priced at $27 a box of nine buns, there are only two flavours at this moment: Black Sesame, and Matcha Azuki.
The mochi in these pillowy buns is said to be more opaque and less gooey as compared to other mochi-filled buns on the market. They come in a checkerboard-like square of nine, so you can split them up with your friends. As Rakki works as an omakase concept, flavours may change at any time, so keep an eye on their Instagram page for the latest updates.
10. Butter Bread
When we tried Butter Bread‘s Matcha Mochi Scone ($6), we were impressed by how the bitter matcha notes paired well with the soft and stretchy rice cake. While this particular bake is no longer on the menu, they’ve replaced it with a Hojicha Honey Mochi Scone ($4.50) that sounds equally delicious. Flavours change from time to time, so make sure you visit their IG page to stay updated.
Apart from scones, the bakery also has a selection of unique bakes on the menu, including a Kimchi Mozzarella Sourdough ($10.50) and Garlic Cheese Croissant ($4.50).

Another home-based business to check out is Jiababa, known for their mochi-stuffed bagels inspired by Taiwan. You might have seen these mini baked bagels popping up on your IG feed, featuring a wide range of colourful fillings that are made from scratch, without added refined sugars or oil. Do take note that Jiababa’s bagels lean towards soft and spongy—unlike the classic New York-style bagels that have a hard crust and chewy middle.
Slots are limited and flavours every week. Popular runs include Black Sesame Bagel with Black Sesame Mochi and Red Bean, and Matcha Bagel with Matcha Mochi and Red Bean.
12. 108 Matcha Saro
For legit Japanese warabimochi in Singapore, visit 108 Matcha Saro, which has three outlets islandwide: Changi Airport T3, Suntec City, and ION Orchard.

Qi Homebake is an under-the-radar home bakery offering a varied selection of fresh bakes, including Mochi Bombolini ($25 for four). These handcrafted doughnuts come in eight sweet fillings, including Peanut Butter, Matcha, Orh Nee, and Sweet Potato.

15. Little Red Dot Bakery

For uber soft and QQ mochi with old-school fillings, visit Little Red Dot Bakery, a hidden gem in Commonwealth. The under-the-HDB bakery caters to the elderly living in the area, so the bakes are softer and more affordable than most big brands. A must-try is the Red Bean Mochi ($2.50 for three), made with chewy mochi and a housemade red bean paste that isn’t too sweet.
The mochis are made fresh daily in the morning, and tend to sell out before noon. Make sure you drop by early in the day or ring them to make a pre-order!
Address: Blk 169 Stirling Road, #01-1165, Singapore 140169
Opening hours: Daily 8am to 9pm

16. Little Moons
We were impressed when we tried UK brand Little Moons‘ viral ice cream mochi for the first time last year. Available on Redmart, these artisanal ice cream balls come in a variety of flavours, including Honey Roasted Pistachio, Vegan Chocolate, and Green Tea. Wrapped in a thin and slightly chewy sweet rice cake skin, the ice cream is smooth and creamy, without being too sweet. Each piece comes under 80 calories, so you can enjoy the sweet treat guilt-free!
Get it on Redmart at $10.95 for a box of six.
