So, what is raindrop cake? It is a giant raindrop dessert which is also known as mizu shingen mochi. Mizu Shingen mochi is a Japanese cult dessert made from mineral water and gelatine or agar and served with roasted soybean flour and sugar cane syrup. I came across Yokosuka Curry House located at City Square Mall, Johor Bahru that offers this dessert. I have visited twice within a month. First time was alone and second time with a friend. With RM5.90 ~ S$2.00 , I would say give it a try! I wonder when Singapore is going to launch this soon.
One thing to take note is that the Raindrop cake needs to consume within 30 minutes. The dessert is very delicate and can only hold it’s from within 30 minutes. So, be quick with your shot and enjoy it fast!
Yokosuka Curry House launches two flavours at this moment. One in original flavour and the other one is Matcha flavour. Based on their Facebook information, they use imported matcha tea powder to product the green tea flavour.
After trying both flavours, my favourite is still the original flavour. It has the light and refreshing taste the moment it dissolves into my mouth. I enjoyed it with the roasted soybean flour and the black sugar syrup that gives a sweet and nutty flavour. As for the matcha flavour, the matcha taste was mild and not strong in flavour. Perhaps the raindrop cake taste is light in nature, the matcha flavour was not strong in presence.
Here are the video that I took for your visual satisfaction. Some said like breast implant. Haha!
And it was featured at Asia Times.
This raindrop cake also have other names such as water cake and unicorn tear. So, go get your wobbling raindrop cake fix soon!
