Finally got a chance to sample the food at the San Bruno Thai temple today. We had lots of good stuff. The only thing we didnt like was seafood noodle soup, but the desserts stood out. Problem is. I dont know what anything is called or whats in it for the most part and I want to learn more.
Heres what we tried:
Two things in banana leavesboth really good.
One was small and flat and the coconut milk confection inside was firm and studded with red beans. It also had a red something in it that had banana-like black dots and it tasted like banana, but nothing else about it seemed very banana-y. Does anyone know what this is? What its called?
There was another banana leaf wrapped item that was smaller and rounder. It had a very silky luxurious coconut custard surrounding a round (plum?) that was stuffed with sugared coconut (?) It had a faint intriguing smoky flavor. What is this? Am I right about whats in it?
Also loved the Green tapioca with cooked red beans in broth, with lychee(?) and topped with coconut cream. Anyone know the name and what else is in it?
Mango sticky ricethis I know and I think its a good version.
The little coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk custard puffs cooked in the black cast-iron molds. I've had this at the Berkeley temple and these were really good--not necessarily better.
All in all. I liked it better than Berkeley and its definitely more low key and easy to get near the food, ask questions, get seats, etc.
