Have you ever heard of or tried this form of Japanese rice cake? It’s called Mizu due to its water base and looks like a giant clear drop of water!
The Mizu is made from water that comes from the Japanese Alps and agar, which is a type of gelatin commonly used in Asian dishes that makes the unique cake melt in you mouth (think cotton candy).
It may look like you could easily pop the cake just by touching it, but you can actually gobble it down with a spoon.
However, you better eat fast unless you plan on lapping it off your plate! This water droplet dessert only stays solid for 30 minutes before dissolving like ice into sweet water.
Japanese cuisine never ceases to amaze us. Where do they come up with this stuff?
