Looking for an affordable and tasty mochi and dessert place? YOLO, located in the Saudi capital, could be the place for you.
YOLO mochi flavors include mango, toffee, vanilla, salted caramel, coconut, lemon, muhallabia, chocolate, and butterscotch. Mochis are sold in mixed or singular flavors in a box of 12 pieces for SR98 ($26), at SR8 a piece.
Mochi is a traditional confectionery Japanese sweet, originally called daifuku mochi. It is typically served with green tea. The dough wrapped around the small ice-cream ball is rice-flour based and usually gluten-free.
YOLO opened its store in Olaya, Riyadh, a few years ago with a wide range of desserts on its menu. Their most famous cake is the YOLO cake. It is a biscuit and milky-flavored cake. It comes in original or latte-flavored options.
Their Kush Kush cake is similar to the YOLO cake, although it includes shredded phyllo dough on top with a sauce drizzle. All three cake types come in large or small boxes, with six small cakes costing SR115 and a large cake costing SR140.
Cheesecakes in many distinct flavors are also sold by YOLO. Flavors include rose berry, pecan caramel, and a few flavors of lotus cheesecakes such as regular, saffron, triple chocolate, chocolate mousse, and rose.
The rose berry and pecan caramel cheesecakes cost about SR88 a box. Each box includes six mini-cakes of either a single flavor or a mix of both flavors. Lotus cheesecakes cost about SR75 a box. A box consists of six lotus cheesecakes, either with a single flavor or mixed flavors on request.
YOLO only receives orders virtually. Their physical branch closed a few months ago. The delicious dessert store, @yolo.s.a, is on Instagram and delivers to your doorstep through the food delivery apps Jahez and The Chefz.
