The only downside is that this joint has no seating, only available for take-away in plastic bags. It is slightly disheartening, trying to find a location to rip open the plastic bags to dip in.

Sticky Rice and Durian to-go

Don’t let the small amount of durian discourage you – good things come in small packages. It starts with sticky rice, lightly sweetened, but not over powering. The durian they use is outrageously pungent, a robust rancid like smell that I think is delightful. The coconut cream soup is lightly sweetened, not super sugary, like many Thai versions.

    Thank you for this! I’m coming back to BKK in a few days, and something durian-related will surely be my first meal. Will it be sticky rice with durian? Plain, fresh durian? Or maybe coconut durian ice cream?
