Sampling Rice Cakes

I pass by little rice cake shops on my way from my home to the metro and back. I finally stopped a few weeks ago to try some. They are soft with a date in the middle. The flavor is very light and most of the sweetness comes from the date. The dark green one in the middle had some sort of herb mixed in. It looked like seaweed but didn't taste like seaweed. I think it was mugwort. It looks like this and I saw them being made on Arrirang TV.

Ian loved them.

Rice with dates - I think we would love them too. I cook rice - plain ol' white rice - in huge amounts to keep my family happy. I keep a large (like Costco sized) plastic pretzel jug so I can buy the 10lb bags and have a handy way to store it.
