Last weekend I felt a sudden yearning for Asian food, so instead of getting breakfast at Tiong Bahru Bakery, I went to Com Nam, the Vietnamese broken rice restaurant.
That’s what I had for dessert. Ice cream made with coconut milk, sticky rice and some chocolate syrup. The sticky rice, which had almost a fruity sweetness, was the best part. I couldn’t finish it all.
What I had first was broken rice topped with marinated pork belly, prawns, a poached egg, chili slices and some cilantro. The juices from the pork soaked into the broken rice, which has the texture of couscous.
It was delicious. Salty, savory and spicy, I ate it with a spoon.
