Bangkok has no lack of dessert shop but to hunt down a dessert shop with a good variety of topping is not easy. I came across this particular dessert shop has a good crowd when I was actually hunting down a delicious wanton mee around the area, the dessert shop also has a brightly lit shop front to arrest people’s attention (that was where I noticed the shop). At a close up look and the shop sure packed with a vast variety of topping for all the sweet tooth out there, top with a ball of shaved ice and coconut milk and this is a dessert shop worth a visit.
I roughly counted the number of topping available and there are around 45 types of different topping to mixed and match into a bowl of yummy dessert to each and every liking of individual. When you are there, take your time to look at the variety of topping that you would like. Once you make up your mind, get the staff attention and let them know your mixture of topping. Do note you are not the only customer they are serving so don’t take too long to decide the choice of topping, and don’t keep changing topping in the mist of selection process. Once you are done, just let them know where you are sitting and they will bring the bowl of dessert to you; once they add in the ball of shaved ice and coconut milk. If you are intolerance to coconut milk, do let them know in advance.
My bowlful of choice of my topping with shaved ice and coconut in a hot humid day of Bangkok in July came to my rescue, and I just take my time to slowly guzzle them. The shaved ice is fine enough as I can hardly find big chunk of ice in it, great to chew on the fine shaved ice. The coconut milk is silky smooth, creamy and liquid mercury like, very appetizing coconut milk I would say. The topping wise I can’t fault them at all, they are all delicious, chewy, crunchy, springy and fresh.
Don’t miss this Thai dessert shop when you are in Bangkok for your food hunting trip, rest and relax or business trip.
