Thai crepes – Khanom Bueang – ขนมเบื้อง

Khanom Bueang is one of the Thai desserts that are easily to find on the street. It is made from rice flour and filled with white cream which is made from egg white and sugar. There are two flavors available to choose from. The sweet one is the one with yellow topping which is made from duck egg yolks. The salty one is the one with deep orange topping which is made from shrimp.

Khanom Alua- ขนมอาลัว

Alua means charming or attractiveness in Thai. Khanom Alua is made from flours, coconut milk, and food coloring. It is one of the Thai desserts that came from Portual. I like this dessert because of its shape, its pastel colors, its taste which is not too sweet, and its texture which is a bit hard on the outside, but soft and sticky on the inside.

Glutinous rice flour balls in coconut cream – Khanom Bua Loi – ขนมบัวลอย

Khanom Bua Loi is the Thai dessert that you could find it on street and also in the restaurant. Bua Loi literally means floating lotus; it was named like this because the small sticky colorful rice balls in the coconut cream look like floating lotus. This dessert is usually served warm.
