Thailand - Eating-out - Sweets and Deserts

Like Thai soups and main dishes, Thai desserts are also delicious, can be very colourful and diverse. They are meant to be as pleasing to the eye as the palate. Thai children and women have a particular liking for them and eat them both after and between meals. Most Thai sweets are made from five simple local ingredients: coconut cream, coconut, rice flour, palm sugar and eggs.
