Earlier this year, we saw a video about a Japanese dessert that became a craze in New York – the Raindrop Cake. But we no longer have to keep wondering what it tastes like because we finally have it here in Cebu!
Don’t know what it is? Watch this video to find out.
The water “cake” doesn’t have any flavor. It simply tastes like water. But with the toasted soy flour and syrup, this dessert is actually quite delicious. I could liken its taste to that of taho, the popular Filipino snack, probably because of the flavors from the syrup and soy, but it’s more refreshing.
It is said to fall apart after thirty minutes, so you have to eat it (or take photos) fast. lol
There is only one restaurant here in Cebu that serves the Raindrop Cake, or Dew Droplet Cake as they call it, and they only serve 10 cakes a day.
And the restaurant that I am talking about is…
Skillet Japanese Cafe & Bistro serves westernized Japanese cuisine. So, if you’re looking for traditional Japanese dishes, you’ll have to go elsewhere. If you do go to Skillet, you have to try their Chicken Pot Pie. I have been trying to maintain a chicken-free diet since February, but I just couldn’t resist having a cheat day every once in a while.

Have you tried it? Do you think it’s a yay or nay?
