So, be honest. You’re thinking that this is some weirdly big drop of water on a plate, right? Well, that’s what I thought when I first saw it. But it’s not! It is Mizu Shingen Mochi — a new Japanese rice cake, which, quite apart from being able to trick our eyes, is hugely delicious.
What’s more, Mizu Shingen Mochi even uses water collected from the Japanese Alps. The creators of this new dessert describe it as tasting much like a traditional mochi, meaning sweet, and is typically sprinkled with soybean powder and placed into a layer of brown syrup.
A cautionary note: Mizu Shingen Mochi melts into liquid in about 30 minutes, so make sure snap a quick photo before enjoying it.
Share this deceptively looking new Japanese dessert with your friends — most of them will surely want to try it.
