Baan Dok Pud is one of very few cafés in Bangkok that highlights traditional Thai desserts. In addition to an ever-changing line-up of both popular and rare Thai sweets, this venue has such a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere you can chill out.

  • price 1 of 4

For four generations, Sarinthip has been a popular destination for khanom beung or Thai crepes (there’s always a queue for these goodies snaking out of the entrance of the Talad Plu fresh market). Sarinthip’s version of this sought- after treat stands out for its crispiness, the result of letting the batter cook in the pan longer than usual. There are two options to choose from: a sweet one that’s heaped with shredded coconut and foi thong (golden egg yolk threads), and a savory one packed with shrimp paste.

Khanom Wan Talad Plu (Mae Jeng)

For reasonably priced Thai treats, look no further than Khanom Wan Talad Plu. Located near the vibrant Talad Plu neighborhood, this traditional shop churns out local sweets that go for as low as B1. Desserts available include thong yip and thong yod (golden rice cakes doused in syrup), khanom chan (a chewy pandan-flavored glutinous treat) and khanom tako (coconut milk pudding with assorted fillings). If you live far from the Talad Plu area, make sure you’re willing to fork out for delivery, which will probably cost more than your dessert bill.
