food news from Wired? and the high tech area of Akihabara


TOKYO -- A new dessert sold from a roadside stand in Tokyo's Akihabara electronics district is drawing crowds with its unique taste -- exactly like that of freshly fallen snow. this story from wired
This is the Money Quote from Chris Kohler's blog
...it's basically ice cream but with a mouth-feel that is almost exactly like snow. Snow. Eating snow is awesome. It's one of the best parts of being a child. Sno-cones are shaved ice, which fail to capture the airy, crystalline feel of snowflakes. But damn if the Japanese haven't figured out how to do it with ice cream. It's really amazing. And apparently you can only get this stuff in Akihabara, as far as I can tell.

here is the shop link...only in Japanese but I am on a mission to go try this. will report back later!
