sweet toasts

i didn’t expect toast to be such a big thing in thailand, but we’ve seen them a bit everywhere, always covered in garish toppings or (more often) condensed milk and served with hot or iced milk.

i confess it feels a bit strange for me to eat such sweet stuff on top of warm bread, the sweetness of the topping amplified by the heat becoming somewhat cloying… but truth be told, it kind of grew on me.

they come in all kinds of funky flavors, like taro, coconut or pandan custard (or the default, condensed milk). on our last day, we tried a different version at mont nom sod: steamed chunks of fluffy white bread, with a coconut custard dipping on the side. it’s soooo good!

they are super popular with the teenagers in bangkok… i can understand why! :D
