ice Cream @ Thon Krueng


Old-school ice cream

Ever think of having ice cream in a Thai restaurant after a feast at an exquisite French bistro?

No. You didn't!

But, I do. I always do!

homemade ice cream - 1. nostalgic flavor vanilla and chocolate, 2. aroma taro

homemade ice cream - 3. custard apple, 4. vanilla, kati, and taro

Thon Krueng is already one of my favorite Thai restaurants in town since I landed to Thailand, however for almost two decades I never tried her ice cream (as I have a prejudice that most Thai restaurants don't make their desserts and ice cream in-house, they use OEM service and they are always too sweet).
Until two years ago I challenged with Thon Krueng homemade ice cream due to curiosity, and surprisingly I found my old-school nostalgic flavor there.

Bangkok epicurean scene, the crouching tiger hidden dragon!

The ice cream looks good.
I remember I have been here with our good friend and Angel(at different table). But I don't remember I had any ice cream at all.

Oh, this one really deserves 4 star rating. 2 thumbs up from me! To some people, it can't be compared to Hagen Daz, but they serve the old school ice cream flavour origin, like TC titled them here. Most of all, they are not that sweet.

Stella said...

Not that sweet is good. I don't like ice cream being too sweet. Haagen Daz is already too sweet.
That is why I like sorbet since it is not too sweet.
Dairy Farm in HK was my school day favorite.

right, after whatever gourmet we eat on Soi Thonglo (may it be French, Japanese, Italian, or Issan ..), we do go for Thon Krueng ice cream, and end up with Mousses and Meringues strawberry short cake .. what a treat

in the sea said...

Haha.. Thon Krueng and Mousses and Meringues are quite opposite but we could have them linked as a final call for sweet after FULL meal. Amazing!
