If you've been afraid to brave the queues at One Holland Village for this popular Japanese mochi, then you might finally be able to get your hands on them now.

The chain made its debut on our shores in February 2024 at One Holland Village, and has been garnering snaking queues ever since it opened.

Like the first outlet, the new store is a takeaway kiosk.

The mall also has a seating area in front of the store that accommodates about 32 diners.

Opening promotion

With every purchase of a 10-piece Warabimochi Box at the new outlet, Warabimochi Kamakura will be giving away a free small cup of their Asakawa-en Matcha drink, to be redeemed when customers next visit.

Third outlet coming soon

With two outlets already within just three months of launching on our shores, it seems the Japanese mochi chain's plans for expansion will not be ceasing anytime soon.

Warabimochi Kamakura will be opening its third outlet just a stone's throw away from the Taste Orchard outlet, at Ngee Ann City.

This outlet is likely to be its flagship, with exclusive menu items available.
