This crazy looking stuff is called Raindrop Cake, a historic Wagashi(Japanese sweets) store Kinseiken is making them only during the summer and now the people are lining up to taste the raindrop.
Raindrop Cake is made mainly from mineral water and agar (a gelatin-like substance) and flavored with brown sugar syrup and roasted soybean flour. In room temperature, it can only last 30 minutes as it starts melting. It provides amazing mouth feel as Raindrop cake melts sweetly in your mouth.
It can’t be carried out because of its softness. No online shop or No delivery is available. Need to line up at the store.
It is sold only from July till the end of September and only on weekends.
Each price about ¥300 JPY.
Watch the seemingly gravity-defying a raindrop cake being made! Join us on the Sunday Times Food Facebook page, tomorrow at 11am. Yamagoya is the first restaurant in London to make the raindrop cake, serving a limited batch of 20 per day. Accompanied by sticky sweet molasses syrup and roasted soybean flour, the completely clear dessert challenges the senses and melts into liquid form once in the mouth – an antidote to the heady heat of Yamagoya’s Japanese ramen broths 🙌🏻⚡️🔥🙏🏻✔️ @yamagoyauk #raindropcake #facebooklive #dessert #london #londonrestaurants
