This dessert is assorted sea grass jelly, gelatin and tapioca pearls in a sweet red sugar infused liquid. I Absolutely like it since I am a sweet tooth (except in Spaghetti ok!). This dessert has similarities in the dessert/drink sago't gulaman in the philippines and in thailand and singapore or malaysia and indonesia. this dessert cost 15,000 VND at the sidewalks and at the markets and goes up to 30,000 VND at restaurants.

Favorite Dish: they also come in different varieties of grass jelly drinks and if you can, try them all hehehe
