We spent a full day in Al Ain earlier this fall while we were hosting friends from abroad. Rated highly on TripAdvisor, we decided to take the 2-hour drive from downtown Abu Dhabi to Al Ain to see a new part of UAE and learn more about UAE culture.

Matcha & Mochi, SushiSan, Holiday Inn Abu Dhabi
You know how much I love my Matcha! I was estatic to hear that SushiSan now offers a Matcha and Mochi Afternoon Tea experience to their guests.
If you’re a follower of my blog I am sure you know what Matcha is! But are you familiar with Mochi? It is a Japanese rice cake – steamed, covered in flour and often filled with amazing goodness! I’ve often enjoyed mine with a sesame paste, strawberry paste or a lotus red bean paste. If you have not yet enjoyed mochi in your life, all the more reason to head over to SushiSan for an afternoon tea Matcha and Mochi experience.
