I think lots of people heard about Mochi ice ream, this is famous Japanese dessert. In China, we also have a similar kind of dessert called Nuomici. It looks like the same, but taste totally different. In the above picture, it is Nuomici, with mango inside. This is my favourite kind of filling as Nuomici.
