Thai Icecream

Thai icecream is the next best thing after Thai tomyam. I ate them a few times when I was in Phuket but they are easily available here now at the Authentic Thai stall in the foodcourt in Tesco Penang.

The whole concoction comprises:

Steamed glutinous rice

Bread cubes

Icecream

Peanuts

Attap Chee and a generous dash of evaporated milk.

I prefer mine to have only attap chee, evaporated milk and icecream. Thai icecream is heavenly because they don’t taste like your regular vanilla icecream but have this super delicious, milky taste of coconut milk. It is not creamy but more on the sorbet type of texture. A cup with two scoops costs only RM2 and I would trade a similar size Haagen Daaz or Baskin Robbins for this. Unless of course, they are some imported, sticky, chewy, bitter, Belgian chocolate icecream.

If you haven’t tried Thai icecream, you don’t know what you are missing!

    I’m quite mystified by this. I honestly can’t imagine a “Thai ice cream” that is nicer than Daaz or Robbins?? LOL

    I actually went to try this last week after reading this post, it was quite worth it, RM2 only.. it has a very strong coconut milk taste. The small pieces of bread were a bit too salty though, when soaked with the melted ice cream
