Most people with even a passing familiarity with Asian cuisine have tried sticky rice. Almost every Asian country has some variety of the dish, although only a scant few types are widely available in the United States. When Marilyn Tran, Evelyn Nguyen, and Jenny Ou traveled to Thailand, they were enchanted by all the different varieties of sticky rice available. Upon returning to the United States, they decided to show Americans everything sticky rice can be with Rice Rice Baby. This cart serves up sweet versions of this Asian classic to those looking to fully immerse themselves in the Golden State’s diverse culinary culture.
Each dish starts with a base of warmed sticky rice mixed with a whole range of saccharine ingredients. The menu features iterations of the dish rarely served in the US of A. You can sample the DJ Custard, for example, and enjoy some purple sticky rice drenched in a creamy egg custard and sprinkled with toasted coconut. Try a Chinese take on sticky rice via the Cardi Bean, sticky rice with sweetened red beans and black sesame coconut drizzle. Whatever you sample, it’ll be an eclectic blend of flavors and textures that somehow come together to form the perfect sweet snack. Eager to try it yourself? Then go out and find Rice Rice Baby near you or book ‘em for your own event. A sticky rice dessert table? It’s a unique choice sure to leave guests impressed.
#Yolo — Purple sticky rice served alongside a velvety scoop of vanilla ice cream and chopped mangos all topped with toasted coconut flakes and drizzled in sweetened coconut milk. Yum.
