What is this drink I had in Chinatown--weird "milkshake"

goodfoodlovr | Jan 13, 2007 03:02 AM

I was in Chinatown in the spring, and I saw some Asian ladies sipping, and using a long spoon, to eat a thick beverage that had gelatinous chunks in it. I pointed to it and asked for one, too! It was cold, served in a tall glass with a thick straw, lightly sweet, very unusual but quite good. My question is..What was it. what was in it, and which Asian cuisine did it belong to?! BTW, my teenaged daughter was so disgusted by it, she couldn't even watch me eat it!
