A scene stops me in my tracks on occasion. The Taj Mahal in Agra, India. The towering Annapurnas in Nepal. Big Australian bush and skies. Tall gleaming glasses of colour in a Saigon market.
I stopped and stared and dared not order for fear that the taste would ruin the view.
This is che, a drink dessert.

The third glass from the left, on the top row, contains basil seeds which are beautiful and delicious. When I have non Asian dinner guests at home, I like to serve them basil seeds chè and scare them by explaining that they are frog eggs.

Don't hold back, Phuong! I suppose it depends on what takes your fancy, what kind of food you're in to.
It is a sight, Preya and Heather, to behold for a good few moments.
Buddhist - I bet you could think up a few other delicacies, too!

Gemma - There are a couple of other posts on che. Check out the Sweeet category, posts called 'Afternoon Delight' and 'A Black che Moment'. On the day I took this pic, I was as full as a boot, couldn't have stuffed a pea in!
