“Chawan Mushi is a great steamed custard soup. It's a Japanese appetizer or side course. I have had it with different "main" ingredients such as seafood, vegetables, or meat, and always find it to be a truly delicious dish with a vibrant and surprising texture and flavor combination. Server it as soup, or as the last course of a sushi dinner. Impress your guest with a healthy and flavorful new recipe not common in Japanese menus .
