Thapthim Krop Jae Uan
Thapthim Krop is a traditional Thai dessert of water chestnuts (which tends to be translated as water truffles) in an agar jelly or syrup, made to resemble pomegranate seeds. It is then served in coconut milk and shaved ice and a mixture of other fruits. This cheap and cheerful cafe serves the dessert in various forms as well as your more usual Thai dishes such as curries and noodles. I had the pad see ew which although fairly small portions, but for the price could have bought it twice, and one of the chef’s special Thapthim Krop. The dessert is an acquired taste but certainly worth a try.
