If you're like me and will eat pretty much anything flavored with black sesame, then the hot black sesame paste ($3) from Yat Yat Sweet is for you. It's not a paste so much as a thick soup/liquidy pudding that coats your tongue with sweet black sesame.

The small tub-sized portion is incredibly filling on its own, but I made it more so by adding Yat Yat's homemade red bean paste-filled tang yuan for another 75ยข.

They're soft, mildly chewy glutinous rice balls filled with sweet mashed red beans break the monotony (the tasty monotony, but still) of black sesame goo.
