Sahlab/Sahlep in NYC

Try the sahlab drink at Horus Cafe in the East Village - I don't know how it measures up again your Istanbul memory but this one was my first taste and it was good enough to have me wandering round online looking to recreate it - it wasn't just frothy on top a la cappuccino, it was frothy and creamy all the way down with a little of what looked like sesame seeds (?) and finely chopped nuts. They describe it as "nuts, coconuts and milk" but I didn't taste coconut, or the rosewater that some recipes mention either.
