Gypsum is inedible, so its appearance certainly cannot be attributed to palatability. Therefore, most people will not choose the shape of plaster for dessert design inspiration. However, that’s exactly what the chefs at Opuses, a high-end restaurant in Tokyo, Japan choose to inspire their new desserts.
Photos of the odd-looking dish were posted on Twitter by user mimimimimitsu32 and eventually received over 200,000 likes, 26,000 retweets, and hundreds of comments. The general impression is that the dessert looks like plaster.
This Opuses special dessert consists of ice cream topped with plaster-like meringues, although the ice cream itself isn’t actually visible. Some of the hundreds of people who commented on the photos asserted that the dessert was indeed delicious, even though you couldn’t tell by looking at it.
According to IT Media, this dessert, called “Grey”, consists of strawberry ice cream and pistachio mousse hidden under thin sheets of black sesame meringue. And it is said to be very tasty.
Opuses in Ginza is well known for its avant-garde culinary trends, but the general sentiment on Twitter is that perhaps they’ve gone a little too far with this plaster-inspired dessert. On the other hand, it is this distinctive look that has earned it coverage on a number of TV shows in Japan, as well as on social media.
