Xôi Gấc

Another day, another xôi!

Xôi gấc is a sweet, coconut flavored sticky rice. The gấc fruit departs a deep orange hue upon the rice, but is fairly “gray” in the flavor department. I’ve read in a number of places on the information super highway that xôi gấc is only eaten during the Lunar New Year and at wedding celebrations. However, in lovely District 4, it’s sold every morning by a handful of ladies. Woot!
