The vividly colored sticky rices and tapioca desserts ($2 to $3) deserve attention, too. Spooned into containers, they’re sprinkled with sugar and garnishes: A purple-hued sticky rice studded with mung beans gets dashes of sesame seeds and chopped peanuts; crispy fried green onions add crunch to a pale-yellow pudding dotted with corn. More than a half dozen varieties displayed behind glass are all rib-sticking and comforting—nontraditional yet perfect breakfast fare.
