Most unlikely dessert
At the Vietnamese restaurant they post the daily specials by slipping pieces of paper under the glass tabletop. The dessert special sounded awful -- black-eyed pea pudding -- but my adventurous daughter-in-law wanted some anyway. Then she was gracious enough to offer generous tastes all around the table.
It was magnificent, smooth and lumpy at the same time like a rice or tapioca pudding, rich with coconut and cream. Wow! Wish I had the recipe, if only to dismay my dinner guests with the description before they tasted the dessert.
