"had my balls in Thanh Ha street, around the back of the Dong Xuan market."

u r cute


They have these for Burmese New Year as well, except with shredded coconut on top instead of sesame - girls make them for boys and they often fill the balls with bird's eye chillis instead of sugar as a prank!


I'm afraid u made a mistake. We call the "sexy balls" in your pictures "banh troi". This dish is served without sauce.
"Banh troi tau" is the bigger balls, having coconut and bean inside, and served with ginger sauce.
"Banh chay" looks similar to "banh troi", but bigger and served with viscous manioc sauce.
It's a bit complicated, even to me.
