Shibuya Honey Toast, despite its Japanese-sounding moniker, is a wholly local creation which has taken Bangkok by storm. Even tourists/foodies from Singapore or Malaysia will join hour-long queues at the After You chain’s many branches for a taste of this decadent dessert. After You is started by young Bangkokian, Kulapat “May” Kanokwatanawan in 2007 when she was only 24 years old - she’s sold her brand to a group of investors which has taken this popular chain city-wide. But we went to the original outlet in Thonglor, ensconced within a F&B complex in this upmarket neighbourhood.
Basically a luxe French toast, smothered with lots of butter, two scoops of vanilla ice-cream, generous lashings of honey and enough whipped cream to send one into cardiac arrest, the Shibuya Honey Toast really hits the spot where my taste-buds are concerned!
Must-not-miss if you’re in Bangkok
