Milk & More: More than meets the eye.
There are quite a few shops around Thailand that sell milk and kanom pung ping, a timeless snack that is enjoyed by the young and old, which is basically toast. You may be thinking “Oh, its just toast”, you are not wrong. However, these toasts are made using an electric grill because the slices of bread do not fit any household toaster. Got you’re attention now?
Milk & More is a newcomer in this market. The shop occupies two blocks of a townhouse in baby-pink. Inside the shop, the décor is cream colored, with plenty of space to sit. Probably the best place to sit is on the counter-seat facing the road. You can watch the flow (or congestion) of Bangkok’s colorful cars thanks to cab companies.
Like the name says, there really is milk, and more on the menu than your average kanom pung ping shop. Beverages include sweetened milk, plain milk, pink milk, green tea milk, chocolate milk, malt milk, coffee milk, and various other hot milk drinks.
- The shop is open everyday from 11AM to 10PM with a break from 2PM to 3.30PM.
- Parking is very difficult to find in this area. Take public transportation if possible.
- You can specify how well grilled you would like your toasts to be.
- You can choose the ice-cream flavor that comes with every ‘Toast’ menu.
As for the snacks menu, you have the Baked Bread set – kanom pung ob; chunks of bread and croissants are served with a bright green Pandanus-flavored dipping sauce called sungkaya. If you prefer toast, kanom pung ping toppings include sungkaya, sungkaya-bannana, chocolate, peanut-butter, sugar & butter, butter & condensed milk, and many other uncommon toppings as well. A popular snack here is the Honey Toast. The Honey Toast is a large slice of bread topped with honey, and served with a scoop of ice cream, bananas, and whipped cream. If you like dark chocolate, order the dark chocolate-coated banana with almonds. Sandwiches such as sandwich-croissant ham and cheese and sandwich-croissant with tuna are also on the menu.
Milk & More is open late in the morning until late in the evening with a break from 2PM to 3.30PM. Ordering take-away is possible if you prefer to eat at home. The shop has a number of different milk sizes you can buy back home or give to others. Parking is very difficult to find in this area so it would be best to take public transportation. Once you are done with your afternoon snack, you can go visit nearby attractions such as Nang Lerng market, temples, and more.
