Help me identify this Thai sticky rice desert?

Hi all, first-time poster, longtime occasional lurker.

I had this desert in Tokyo, in a Thai Muslim restaurant:

The reason I mention it was a Muslim resto is because I can't find anything like it here in Calgary, and I'm wondering if it's specific to Thai Malays or other Muslim Thais' cuisine.

It's a (warm) bowl of beautiful sticky little rice balls - sweet little rice balls - in milk. The only deserts I've found online and at local Thai places are the sticky rice and mango, with a big piece of (salty) sticky rice plopped in milk with mango slices.

What I had was completely different. It was intensely sticky and chewy - almost marshmallowey - little balls of rice, sweet, with no mangoes in sight.

Anyone have any idea what I'm on about?
