One must-not-miss in Bangkok: Khao niew moon (sticky rice) from the legendary 80-plus years old Sor Boonprakob, where Bangkokians have been lining up for their dessert since the reign of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V).
Only the freshest, sweetest mangoes are used here, to accompany their perfectly steamed, coconut milk-enriched sticky rice.
One can also opt for the sangkaya (steamed coconut-duck’s egg-palm sugar pudding) as an accompaniment for the sticky rice.
One of the best-tasting renditions I’d ever had.
