When it comes to Thai cuisine, there are more dishes to try than appetizers and entrees. Thai desserts are an indulgence for many customers at Thailand Cuisine on Maui. If you’re looking for the best Asian food to try in Hawaii, consider ordering one of these sweet treats.
Sticky Rice Desserts
There are so many varieties of sticky rice desserts that you simply have to pick one to fall in love with their sweet flavors. Khao Neow Toorien, or durian coconut milk soup with sticky rice, is ideal for anyone who loves durian. The Khao Mao Tod, or fried banana with roasted rice, features a ripe banana, coconut, and roasted sticky rice.
Jelly or Custard Desserts
Egg yolk tarts and coconut jelly highlight this portion of Thai cuisine. Woon Ma Plow, or coconut jelly, consists of coconut hardened in a coconut shell. Tong Yord, or round egg yolk tart, is a recipe of egg yolk, flower water, and sugar boiled into a syrup before being formed into balls.
Soups & Puddings
You might have had tapioca pudding before, you’ve probably never had it made the Thai way. Sakoo Piek is made of tapioca balls swimming in a pudding paste. Rang Nok, also known as sweet bird’s nest soup, is a great dessert for anyone who doesn’t like their food too sweet.
Some of the healthiest desserts in Thai cuisine feature fruit as the main star. Many Thai desserts utilize milk and coconut, and Gluay Buad Chee—bananas in coconut milk—is no exception. There’s also the Thai mixed-fruit smoothie, which features tropical fruits mixed with coconut water.
Sweet Thai Pancakes are a mixture of coconut milk and yeast, and they come with a variety of toppings. Sweet Thai Crepes are made of meringue and foy tong and are melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
