Why These Flavors Work

Jasmine rice has a very floral and aromatic flavor that is not necessarily sweet, but it is a flavor that is very agreeable with desserts. Vietnamese coffee makes sense here because it is also very aromatic; it can share this quality with the jasmine without overwhelming it. There is also a wonderful temperature difference in this dessert that comes from combining the hot pudding with the ice cream.
