01 The TripPacker's Review
Every now and then, we find ourselves looking for something to satisfy our sweet tooth. It can be hot eats or a cold treats, but regardless of what it is, it always refreshes us and keeps us energized not to mention the smile it brings on our faces. If you find yourself looking for snacks or desserts in the city of Chiang Mai, here are a few noteworthy places for you to indulge in your desires.
If you’re looking for homemade ice cream, “I like ice cream” is the up and coming ice cream parlor that the youngsters of Chiang Mai are talking about. Their signature creation is the ‘cheese’ flavored ice cream. You’ll also find other exotic flavors such as melon, yogurt, dark choco-brownie, honey, banana butter, and more. The prices of their ice cream are almost dirt cheap which attracts quite a crowd on a daily basis.

Ice Cream Kod Kring (Kod Kring means ‘to ring the bell’) is the name of a homemade ice cream stall which was given by the locals of Chiang Mai. On Soi 5 of Nimmana Haeminda road, look for a house with an orange awning. Walk up to it and ring the bell (just once or twice is enough) . You’ll be greeted with a smile by the owner who’ll propose you one of the 24 flavors available. Some of the flavors include Coconut, Mango and Sticky rice, Lychee, Passion fruit, and more.

For a healthy beverage, you may want to try Japanese soy milk from Tonew’s shop. If you don’t fancy soy milk, there are other healthy drinks such as fresh milk, corn juice, and pumpkin juice. Also served here are ‘Pa-tong-go – Deep-fried dough sticks’. These dough sticks are almost a foot long. Thais typically have these for breakfast, or before bed, with soy milk. If you want to try them out, do so before 9PM; there are various branches around town.

One classic Thai dessert enjoyed by most is Thub Tim Krob. Literally translated it means crispy rubies, however they are actually mock pomegranate seeds. These mock seeds are served in coconut milk syrup eaten cold with crushed/shaved ice. Mock seeds aren’t the only ingredients available so go there to find out what else there is. Thai food critic, Shell, has been here before and also recommends this place.

Steamed stuff buns are a fairly common snack for Thais of all ages. You can buy these buns from shops like Waraporn (in Bangkok only) or 7-Eleven (across the country). Buns from 7-Eleven are a quick hunger fix, but the taste can’t compare to freshly made steamed stuff buns. So if you’re in Chiang Mai and you’re craving a hot snack, go to Vikulpanich. The shop has five flavors for you to choose from; minced pork, pumpkin, black bean, gourd, and sweet cream. They also sell steamed pork dumplings as well.
