We adore San Francisco's old-school mochi overlords Benkyodo, who've been open on and off for more than 100 years and continue to dazzle us with modern interpretations of this Japanese dessert. But recently we've been swayed to cheat on them by Simply Mochi after their appearance last week at the SF Weekly Web Awards. They're made in San Mateo and available for online sale and delivery to San Francisco and cities on the Peninsula and East Bay ($1-$1.50 each, plus delivery fee). We like red bean paste as much as the next person, but we're not gonna front like we wouldn't rather have lemon curd, strawberry cheesecake, or s'mores -- just a snippet of what Simply Mochi offers ― wrapped up in those chewy little orbs.
