  1. Do they add starch to thicken the black sesame soup, or is that naturally thickened by the sesame? I know the packaged stuff has thickeners, but I'm surprised that the sesame itself binds that well. There was a small stall in Tai O that had incredible black sesame soup; it has since moved indoors to the local wet market.

    Thanks for the video as always!
