Momoko connects to Sushi Niichi Japanese Restaurant, but this import and specialty store was here before the eatery. To put it in Gwen Stefani Harajuku Girl speak, this boutique is "super kawaii (cool)!" There is everything from traditional sake sets and anime clothing to bubble stickers and high-quality jewelry. For those with the munchies, Momoko sells candy, cookies, and soft drinks that are popular in Japan. Many claim that this establishment is the first bubble tea shop in Austin, and whether or not that is the case, the flavor selection is extensive (taro root is king!), and they can put in other fillings like jelly or fruit besides the popular tapioca pearls. In addition, the chefs have added rice balls to the menu. -Freddie Obregon
