Vietnamese Banh mi food cart in Nha Trang
One of my favorite desserts that my mom would make is chè trôi nước. I also had some in Vietnam during my travels. The chè dessert consists of balls made from mung bean paste wrapped in a shell made of glutinous rice flour. The balls are served in a thick, sweet clear or brown liquid made of water, sugar, and grated ginger root. It is served warm and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.
