Japanese desert mystery

Bob Huenemann | Oct 21, 2005 11:49 PM

We had a wonderful kaiseki dinner at Kaygetsu when it first opened. We ordered the sake tasting as well, which was wasted on me. The least expensive sake was so much better than anything I had ever tasted that I should have just gone with it. But other than that, it was an elegant meal.

But the dessert was, and is, a puzzle to me. Forgive me if I am insulting thousands of years of tradition, but to me it was these tiny squares of colorful but tasteless soy bean jello. And the menu raved about how special they were.

Can anyone help me out here? I think the dessert is keeping me from going back. It was only one course, but it was the last course, so it sticks in my memory.
