Or set portion size to very small. Even a lover of sweets may find some Malaysian confections beyond the pale. Almost all, including the quartet above (I don't know their names; do you?), are laced with palm sugar. The sweetest, pastel pearls perhaps made from tapioca, were snowcapped by shaved coconut and drippy with coconut water (rm 1).
My favorite confection of the evening, from another stall down the road, was a square cut from close-packed grains of rice that had been imbued, top to bottom, with sticky, caramelized brown sugar (rm 1). In this case, not so sweet was plenty sweet enough.
