Don’t You Love Chinese Food?
Look at all of that deliciousness! Ramen noodles, potstickers – even tenshindon, a rice omelette with crab topped with a thick sauce!
Oh, just one thing: THESE ARE ALL SWEET DESSERTS!
Cue The Secret Desserts!
While it may look like this young woman is digging into a platter of great chinese food, they are all sweets!
The terrific website SoraNews24.com shared this hilariously secret way to have your cake and eat it too – just pretend it’s something else!
There is a sweets shop in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district called “Maplise”, where the specialty of the house is a decadent dessert that looks like a hot bowl of noodles! Yes, THIS is a dessert!
This amazingly creative bakery has mastered the art of designing desserts to look like regular chinese food, so you can indulge without being discovered! Not only that, they serve the desserts to you in chinese food containers!
So much espionage!
However, the real spy games begin when you take your delicious desserts out!
“Salt Ramen” For Dessert!
Here is how SoraNews24 described what they ordered – the “salt ramen”:
“Even looking at them up close, they look like the real deal. They’ve recreated every detail, including a transparent soup for the noodles and the crunchy fried skin of the dumplings. The tenshindon was especially well done, from the looks of the egg, to the shininess of the sauce, and even the handful of green peas normally used as a garnish wasn’t forgotten.”
Imagine sitting at your desk, eating a bowl of ramen noodles like this…friends and co-workers stop by, glance over, and move on…but you know what you are biting into: CAKE!
More “Tenshindon” Please!
And remember that tenshindon, the rice omelette with crab topped with a thick sauce?
Well, an amazing thing happens as you take your fork and cut into it – this beautifully created dish is actually a CHOCOLATE CAKE:
Yep, a chocolate cake! And these realistic pot stickers are also…that’s right, dessert!
Pass The Soy Sauce, Please!
That’s right, they even have “soy sauce” for you to make the deception complete, but don’t worry about it spoiling your sweet tooth – it’s really maple syrup!
Now you know why I love Tokyo so much – so when I took my wife and son there, we had to go to the “fake food” district!
Yes, we were in a store filled with fake food – and of course, I had to buy a plasticized cheeseburger!
My son and wife got plastic food as well – now why do they make this? Only one way to find out, check out the reason here:
Plastic food is all the rage in Japan – to the point that the school girls are even WEARING IT!
