There are many wonderful things to eat at Flushing’s Curry Leaves, including an entire hawker style soup service that runs from 4 a.m. to 11 a.m.. One of my favorite things is a psychedelic green and white pandan confection. I don’t know whether to call the mostly green parallelograms pudding or gelatin. One thing’s certain, they are delicious, sweet with just a hint of savoriness. The sweet comes from the green portion and the savory from the thin white layer, which tastes of coconut and a whisper of salt. The cool pandan pudding is a fine snack on its own. It also makes for an especially welcome finale to the often fiery fare here. Four of the wobbly scalloped-edge blocks and an iced coffee will set you back a mere $4.50.
