Sweet Sticky Rice with Ripe Mango
Cho Sornkaew Rainbow Sweet Sticky Rice
At Cho Sornkaew, we sampled one of Bangkok best sweet glutinous rice (a.k.a. sweet sticky rice) desserts (served with ripe mango) in eight natural color from Thai herbal leaves and fruits. Our share, the texture of glutinous rice at Cho Sornkaew was tender yet chewy, best sweet glutinous rice dessert I sampled in Bangkok. The ripe mango, unlike most other sweet glutinous rice with ripe mango dessert vendors offer, was aromatic enough and not too sweet.
No wonder Cho Sornkaew has stand strong in Bangkok for three decades even though its location is quite remote from the city center.
If finding Cho Sornkaew is a bit difficult, you may alternatively try the dessert at a roadside sweet glutinous rice dessert vendor at Chok Chai 4 Market (at corner of Chok Chai 4 Road and Lat Proad Road) that also stands strong in Bangkok for a decade.
