Some food photos from BKK part 2

There is another type of Thai food I like which is desserts. I love the dessert that contains water chest nut and sago in it. They called it Thub Thim Krob. I love it as it’s crunchy. The water chest nut is quite different from those found in Malaysia. It’s sweet, not too sweet. In Malaysia it’s difficult to find one that tastes good. Most of the time, I found the Malaysia one bland in taste, I could not find a trace of sweetness in it. Normally when you are at food court you could indulge yourself in the world of dessert. The dessert stores will normally parade all the cut fruits in the counter. You could also find cendol, red beans, gingko and lots more. You get to customize your own type of dessert. You could actually mix and match. Normally they will allow 3 types to be selected. You could also choose the type of syrup you wants to mix it together with ice like eating Ais Kacang or Cendol.

Look at the array of fruits and dessert items. Its colorful and this is one of the smaller shops.....

My wife loves a type of dessert that could not be found in this kind of dessert stores. Normally it will only be on sale in certain period of the year as its season dependent. It is mango with sticky rice or in thai Khao Nui Muang Muang. I remember there is once my colleague (now ex colleague) missed it so much that they actually tried in one of the restaurant at KLCC. The restaurant is near the escalator. They are 4 of them so they ordered 4 plates, as they thought the most is double the price as compare with BKK. When the bill comes, it cost them a bomb, its above Rm15 per plate. In BKK, you get it for less than 20 baht.

This shops sells it with redbeans also. Normally you will get it served together with cooked cocunut syrup or santan which is milky in color garnish on top of it.

Wow, those desserts look yummy as hell!! haha, I'm a 100% native dessert lover, I can't believe you guys has sago in Malaysia/and Thailand. We also have that here in the PI. Right now, what I truthfully love is Quickly's milk teas. Kick-ass milk teas. I love them to death. Haha, you talk about food and I will listen, with mouth open. Nothing compares to Asian desserts. Hmm, I'm hungry.
