The coconut pudding pancakes (or kanom krok) I just had are odd — tasty, but odd.
Mango sticky rice is a classic Thai dessert, and it’s very, very easy to see why.
I was quickly scanning the menu at McDonald’s during a stopover at the Bangkok airport, and I saw that they had a savoury pie on the menu.
I almost did a double take. Wait, what? Did I just see that? I glanced around to confirm that I was looking the McDonald’s menu. And yep, there it was: the Chicken BBQ Pie.
When I had the chendol from Penang Road Famous Chendol, the vendor across from it was closed because of Chinese New Year (Thanks, Chinese New Year, for making sure basically everything was closed during the bulk of my trip to Penang. Thanks. I was hoping that most of the places I wanted to try would be closed. You know, just to spice things up).
Ice chendol isn’t the most photogenic dessert ever, but man, it’s so good.
I wasn’t really planning on revisiting McDonald’s in Malaysia, but I was walking by one and saw that they had a lychee sundae, and I figured sure, why not?
I recently found myself near the Lingya Night Market in the middle of the afternoon. I knew it would be closed, but I figured I’d walk through just to check it out.
It turned out there were a few vendors open, including a place serving up some very tasty-looking deep-fried goodies with an impressively massive line-up.
Featuring some of the ripest, sweetest mango that I’ve ever had, the mango shaved ice at Gao Xiong Po Po Shaved Ice is exceptionally delicious.
Shaved ice is delicious. Pudding is delicious. But is pudding on shaved ice too much of a good thing?
No. No it is not.
