Sweet Mochi Trio at RA Sushi

All good things come in threes, as they say, and Ra Sushi takes that theme and runs with it for this dish. The traditional Japanese dessert of ice cream wrapped in a sweet rice cake is served up in three different flavors to satisfy any palate. The mango, strawberry and vanilla mochi are served with a side of sliced kiwi and strawberries, just for good measure. $7.50, in Fashion Show, 696-0008.
