Buford Highway desserts of all colors laid out in a rainbow

There are more colors of desserts on BuHi than there are colors in the rainbow, but, for the purposes of this exercise, we held it to these six hues. And while most of these sweets are found in a cozy bakery or frenetic dessert shop, that majestic, purple halo-halo happens to hail from one of the highway’s best, most off-the-beaten-track markets. You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced purple-yam ice cream with crushed ice, condensed milk, sweetened beans, and tropical fruit.
