Chè-Vietnamese Drink

one of food stall in Hue, Vietnam
That night, when i was in Hue, Vietnam. the very first day in Vietnam, i was asked by my lovely friend, Le Khanh, to have city tour. In the evening, after visisting pagoda in teh top hill, we tried Chè (dibaca 'je'). 
Che is Vietnamese thick, sweet dessert soup or sweetened porridge. it tasted very nice and very suitable if we drink in Hue for sure, because it warmed our body and hue is so cold on that time due to spring season.

there are many kind of  che. actually, how did it taste?? Well, Che tasted very sweet and with some ginger on it it made me feel warm after drink it, also the fruit chops would make it very rich of protein.  Che with red bean, Green Bean, Corn, Some Fruits, Pudding, Fla, etc, are commonly you can found in Vietnam.
