Banh Dua (Sticky Rice Stick): Today marks day 3 of new Vietnamese finds from Lee's Bakery on Buford Highway. If I haven't mentioned before, Vietnamese is one of my favorite cuisines, and I've generally liked everything I've had from it. I have obvious faves (banh mi, pho), but Ive really been enjoying the new stuff I found at Lee's. I found today's food (banh dua) at the prepared foods counter there, and I honestly had no idea what it was. The guy behind the counter's description ("sticky rice with mung bean") didn't help much, but I'm all about things I can't identify.
