Among the row of sweet soup shops on that street, shop No. 280 is always busy. The shop offers more than 20 kinds, of which the Thai sweet soup is the most popular. The soup entices with the sweetness of longan, coconut and fragrance of durian.
Another striking soup is the milk cocktail that mixes tropical fruits like jack fruit, longan, durian and water coconut. Coconut jelly is also a favorite option for many young diners. The soup is made of fresh coconut water, sugar and seaweed in a coconut.
Vegetarians can eat tofu sweet soup made of milk, soy bean and seaweed mixed with fruit flavor, syrup and cocoa.
But the must-try dish is pumpkin sweet soup. The main ingredient is steamed pumpkin which is stuffed with coconut juice, milk and eggs.
The shop also prepares many traditional Vietnamese sweet soups made of red bean, green bean, white bean or thung and ba ba sweet soup.
