At least I think this is what i recently had as a dessert in an Asian restaurant....a round little dumpling looking thing filled with black sesame paste floating in a soupy clear-ish mixture.

Now I pride myself on not being a picky eater and really i'm not one of those texture hating people, and i will often go for the weirdest, freakiest thing on a menu....but when i bit into one of these things and it unpleasantly exploded in my mouth...i couldn't eat another one. I had tried it on the suggestion of my sister who likened them to gulab jamun....not !!! The taste didn't wow me either, and i didn't like the weird chewiness of the dough.

It was kind of funny though....my mom, who is not good at chopsticks, tried to skewer one with a chopstick in the bowl, and it shot out the paste....it looked like she'd scared it, if you catch my drift....heehee.

I'm sure there are people who love these things...my sister and brother in law devoured them. Maybe i just don't like "exploding" type things....I couldn't eat whole clams again after biting into a whole one with, i guess, a large sac on it. . blech. It was my first try at fried clams which were a local speciality, and no one told me....i thought i had bitten into bad shellfish.
