Khao Niaow Ma Muang (Thai Mango Sticky Rice)

I’m sitting beside the swimming pool with my laptop and feeding Thai mosquitoes again. Though you may think that I’m having a good life here but in fact, I’m still stuck with my life. Problems are still there, unsolved. I have to think, to think and to think. Maybe I think too much. Charlie Chaplin once said: “We think too much, and feel too little.” Is this human nature?

The Best Khao Niaow Ma Muang in Bangkok

In this entry, I would like to introduce you a very simple but delicious Thai dessert, Khao Niaow Ma Muang (Mango Sticky Rice). If you come to Bangkok, and would like to try the local Mango Sticky Rice, look no further. Take train to Thong Lo BTS Station (Exit 4) or take taxi to “Sukhumvit Soi 38“. You’ll see a lot of hawkers along the street.

Look for this Mango sticky rice stall with board written “Sticky rice and coconut milk with mango 60-80 baht” in English. Don’t worry if you don’t speak Thai, the Thai lady is very friendly. I think Thong Lo is the best place to get your Mango Sticky Rice in Bangkok. You’ll love it!

Sukhumvit Soi 38 is full of food so there’s something for everyone. Walk to the end of the street. There is a stall selling rice and noodles. Sister and I ordered “Stewed pork with steamed rice” and “Egg noodle no soup with crispy pork”. Price range around 40 to 60 baht, cheap and tasty!

I like to eat at the last restaurant at the end of the street (see photo). Try “Noodles in currry soup with coconuts milk”, “Rice noodle with grilled pork”, “Egg noodle with grilled beef”, “Tofu in ginger soup” or “Patonkhoo (fried dough)” there. I’ve been there many times. The food is really good, and for once you should try it.

I wonder why some Thai desserts are so sweet; I saw one of the hawkers pour a big pack of sugar into the pot to make the dessert.
