Thai Street Food - Coconut Ice-cream - PhotoHunt

fresh fruits over yummy coconut ice-cream

PhotoHunt theme : Over/Something Rusty

Shopping at the Chatuchak weekend market in Bangkok can be very tiring. Plus the hot weather in Bangkok, it was a welcome treat when I chanced upon a rustic cafe selling ice cold coconut ice-cream.

Their rich, creamy coconut ice-cream cost 35 baht (S$1.40) with three selected toppings. From a wide selection of toppings, I chose fresh longans, jackfruit and basil seeds. The coconut ice-cream was not too sweet and it is really delicious.

Being served ice cream in a coconut was really novel for me. I got to eat the tender coconut meat, 3 scoops of coconut ice-cream with toppings of my choice and a complimentary cup of pure coconut juice.

Besides the usual beverages, the cafe also serves light meals such as sandwiches and traditional Thai snacks.

The place is really small, it only has 5 tables. Good thing we went before lunch so it wasn't super crowded. Love the friendly service.

Plain water served in a rusty mug :)

As we walked around the massive Chatuchak market, we discovered that coconut ice-cream is sold in every nook and corner. There was one particularly famous stall that has long queues of customers. I didn't join in the queue as I wanted to try other street food. :)

  2. If it is yummy, the price is fine. The coconut ice-cream I ate here in Singapore was not as tasty as the one I had in Bangkok and it cost S$3. -_-

  8. Never heard of coconut ice cream; Anyway I don't like the taste of coconuts very much, and would have chosen another flavor.

  13. It was so many years ago that I was in Bangkok...but, there, I had the most wonderful fruit of my life, seldom found again - mangosteens. I even did a blog about it once.

  15. But I am not so interested to go to Chatuchak as it's hot and congested. Maybe they sell these coconut ice cream elsewhere?
