Looks odd. how was it?

good! definitely an odd combination to just have strong coconut milk and lime flavors, but it worked well I thought. I have no idea if this is traditional or just some invention of the restauarant...

This looks good. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.

is that like the coconut milk soups?

It was kind of like a coconut milk soup, but those usually have other spices and flavors too - galangal, chili, etc. This was pretty much just coconut milk and lime, so you tasted those flavors more, and the contrast between them...
