Silom Market Parking Garage Desserts - Thai Town
Last weekend, D and I cruised Thai Town's Hollywood Blvd for another bowl of Thai boat noodles before cooking for his Saturday night dinner party. After our Thai Boat Noodles, we headed to Silom Market for our weekly groceries.
Outside of Silom Market (in the parking garage) is a small Thai dessert cart serving up foi thong (sweet shredded eggs) and shredded coconut on a cookie. The cookie seems to be the same batter as a fortune cookie, but definitely more light and crunchy. The middle is a coconut meringue. And the toppings can either be shredded coconut or foi thong (aka golden threads). At 9 for $3, they're a nice snacky snack on a congested 101 Fwy.
*Like most Thai desserts, these are super sweet. I had to throw out some coconut and foi thong toppings to make it more manageable. Nevertheless, I'm always a sucker for Thai street food.
