Hungry? How about a nice serving of delicious Dragon Balls. You know, from Dragon Ball. A restaurant in Japan serves up just that.

Located in Nagoya, Danke Dinning serves up Dragon Ball-themed hot pots (鍋 or "nabe" in Japanese).

The Dragon Balls are made from collagen jelly with little carrot stars moulded into the balls. The resulting dish is known as "Dragon Ball Nabe."

You could try to make your own, but that might be difficult.

    That looks really cool but is that actually edible or just for looks?

      It's edible but it's fucking yuck, it's not aeroplane and shit. and it has carrot in it to boot. yuck.

        Yeah, my impression was that it's "edible" in the sense that it won't kill you to eat it, but that it's not very tasty and not *supposed* to be eaten. Thanks for confirming :)
        Still looks pretty cool though.

          well, if its collagen jelly then it's basically a gigantic blob of tasteless jelly. Maybe they added dashi stock or something in the liquid when they formed the jelly so it might have a little taste. otherwise it maybe similar to konnyaku or shirataki, which are tasteless on their own.

          For westerners the bigger issue maybe be texture which won't be an issue for most asians...

            Depends on the texture but as a Korean-Canadian-Australian who was raised on traditional Korean meals I'm not sure I'd appreciate it. I guess I'd have to try to see.
