Sweet Sticky Rice in Bamboo

The sticky rice is cooked in bamboo. We love this idea of using natural, biodegradable container which gives the sticky rice the unique taste and scent. To prepare, the sticky rice is sweeten with coconut milk and put in the bamboo since dawn of each day, then burned in the evening. Usually you can find different types of seeds that give more flavors and textures to this sweet, such as poppy seed, black sesame, red bean, black sticky rice and more. Each of them has one flavor. This is the perfect grab-on-the-go, healthy, environmental-friendly and delicious snack for a picnic or road trip, or even as breakfast.

Sugarcane Juice

To see sugarcane juice vendor is really interesting because the drink is fresh-pressed at the spot they sell it. Using the specific kind of pressing machine to get the juice, you can see that what you get is real and fresh. The juice itself is perfect for a hot day when your body needs (natural) sugar. The taste is great and it can be enjoyed both room-temperature or chilled.
