It is but one of many variations of soups that are served as a component of a typical Vietnamese meal. Traditionally, a Vietnamese meal is composed of jasmine rice, a meat or seafood dish and a bowl of soup on the side.
It not unusual for these types of soup to be poured over rice, makes it’s interesting and a great texture to chew on too!
Reason this is one of my favourite soup, is not only that I love anything with coconut.. but it’s one that taste more like a desert than any other!!
