Sabang - Wheaton
Hello - Wheaton used to have a fabulous Indonesian restaurant - Sabang, until they closed in 2007 or so. Sabang had a terrific menu, but one of the items that I can't seem to find anywhere is the name of that green glutinous dessert made from rice that was in a pool of palm sugar/coconut milk syrup (I believe). Does anyone remember the name of the dessert? Thanks!
Perhaps it was a pandan version of bubur sumsum? Bubur sumsum is Indonesian rice pudding:
and, to me, green often makes me think of pandan (see pandan cake).
That said, the green could also be avocado-based as well (a la the chocolate avocado smoothie you often see at Indonesian restaurants). Bangkok Golden often does an avocado sticky rice dessert.
ETA: There are some very green bubur sumsum pandan pics out there:
This fabulous dessert you are looking for can be found at Satay Sarinah,Van Dorn street in Alexandria.
