Siam Pandan, Crowd Pleasing Thai Snack

Siam Pandan, A Local Favorite

 Siam Pandan was a discovery today, after our lunch at Burendo, Siam Square.

Good business!

 We seldom drive to Siam Square, but today we did. Our car was parked at the same building as British Council at 254, Chulalongkorn Siam Square Soi 64. Crossing the road, I spotted crowd buying local snacks (or kuihs) .. and D told me that this snack has became very popular, kanom krok bai toey (sweetmeat with pandanus leaf).

This shop used to be a small stall, located next to Mango Tango.

Price list

 ‘We’ bought a box of the signature sweetmeat with pandanus leave 9 pieces @ 40 THB to try. Well … I thought it was a ‘we’, but I ended up finishing up the whole pack by myself. Tsk.

A flower .. UFO ?

 It was not an omigod-mouthwatering-delicious, but just okay. Not too sweet, so that’s a plus. Anyway, I am not the best judge, as not a fan of many Thai desserts / snacks. But Thai people seemed to like it, so why don’t you give it a try?

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
