Uirō (外郎) is a traditional Japanese steamed cake made of rice flour and sugar. It is chewy, similar to mochi, and subtly sweet. Flavours, among others, include azuki bean paste, green tea (macha), yuzu, strawberry, and chestnut. The city of Nagoya is particularly famous for its uiro, but it can also be purchased in traditional Japanese confectionery shops throughout Japan.
