National Tapioca Day | Tapioca Custard

The texture of tapioca pudding takes some getting used to. (Or is it just me?) Even though the food holiday kind of demands it of me, I didn’t want to make tapioca the star of the show. So, I made another texturally difficult dish, a custard (now this I like), and spread the tapioca pudding on top.

Not too bad, after all. The thing is that I just wish I like tapioca more. But I can’t get behind the boba teas either. Maybe one day!
