Time Out says

Get here early morning, and you’ll catch the last wave of Thai clubkids in their party gear; later the crowd shifts to their parents stopping in before work, and their grandparents lingering with friends over coffee. There will also be a sprinkling of Jonathan Gold devotees—the Pulitzer Prize–winning food writer is a fan of this diner, which is tucked in a seedy-looking motel parking lot. No matter who’s eating, at least half the tables will have a little dish of Chinese doughnuts, square pillows of lightly fried dough, to be dipped in creamy condensed milk. Follow yours with a big bowl of jok, a rich, satisfying rice porridge sprinkled with white pepper, fresh slivered ginger and scallions, all of which elevates the earthy catfish buried at the bottom of the bowl. Take note: Cash only.

tastemaker

Siam Sunset is famous for its Chinese Donuts, or pa-tong-go, dipped in condensed milk. . They also have a great way to wash them down. Also a great heat quencher is the coconut palm sugar juice. Deeply refreshing with crushed ice, very sweet and it leaves a sort of butterscotch or even buttery taste in one’s mouth.


Sweet on sweet!
