The Mysterious Black Block

Can anyone guess what this is? What were the first things that came to mind?
This is actually a traditionally Chinese dessert that is quite hard to find now. This is a black sesame pudding cake. If you love sesame you would love this.
I haven't seen this for ages, but the other night I came across an old granny on the street who was selling all types of traditional desserts and I could help myself and bought one.
The texture is a little chewy but soft. I really enjoyed it.
The grandma told me that she always has a stand in Central Hong Kong at the corner of Wellington street in LKF.
I will definitely buy from her again if I see her :)

The lady sells her dessert at point G in "Places Part 1" on the map.
