Vietnam's Sweet Soup Che

The Ben Thanh market is aggressive and over priced - but one great thing about the market is the back section of food vendors! My favorite was the che vendors towards the back of the market. We stopped at a che vendor for a sweet drink and I had a che with sticky rice filled with mung bean – it was practically orgasmic.

Che is a sweet dessert soup served in a glass over ice and eaten with a spoon. For che – I would brave my way into Ben Thanh Market any day…I might even give my niece up for adoption for that che. Luckily it didn’t come to that though.
