Bhan Kanom Thai (Thai Town)

By in 04: Los Feliz

Right next door to Red Corner Asia is this Thai sweets heaven. I forgot to take photo of the amazing wall-packed full of Thai candies and goodies interior. There’re many Southeast asian delights like dried aloe candy, Durian chips, etc. Other than package candies and fruits, they offer freshly made housemade sweets such as:
I forgot what are these called! These little half shell pancakes are stunningly YUMMY! The white foamy chewy texture is marshmallow-like, the orange toppings are shrimp flavor (hence salty!) and the yellow toppings are egg yolk. Very addictive.
Kasawa: Corn & Taro Cakes. A bit bland. Panchi: fried taro corn cake. They must be from heaven! They’re sweet, moist, chewy (but not sticky), so good soooo good.
The little peppers are made from Yellow bean, they look more fun than they taste (just starchy bean inside). Macaron shaped Kanom Krok has a moist, gelatinous texture (like cantonese “White Sugar cake”) with coconut cream, quite good.

There’re more, I can’t wait to try them all.

    The crepe looks so good~!! Never seen that before!!
    The bean peppers are so cute~ Maybe you shouldn’t eat them alone but use them as decorations on other desserts?
    White Sugar cake? Dunno what that is…^^;;

    Those red peppers/fruits/tomato candy looked like miniature fake food, so tempting looking! I think they’re good as side compliment to dessert. some people probably would like the ‘healthy’ taste of yellow bean paste…^^;;

    White Sugar Cake is “bak tong Go”, you can get them in dim-sum sometimes. They’re weird tasting…and I think they were becoming extinct. It was a popular cantonese sweets back in the days but even when I was a child in 80s it were already becoming rare and my dad would be soooo happy whenever he found them (which of course never taste as good as they used to).
