So, when I said from my previous post that this week is going to be the ice cream week. I really meant it 🙂
A few days ago a friend of mine just opened a brand new food truck named BANTHAI Express.
So, my co-workers and I went right after work to congratulate P’Kate & P’Michael for their success and to support their business.
By the time we got there it was already 10.40pm., so technically it was after the business hours. However, friendship is always more important than time so she waited and welcomed us with Tom Yum Bamee Moodang (Thai spicy noodle dish with red pork) and also a very delicious homemade coconut ice cream, which is served in Thai style (it comes with bread on the very bottom, follow with a layer of sweet sticky rice, scoop coconut ice cream on top, then top with peanuts and a little bit of condensed milk).
The noodle dish is different from what I’ve experienced, and the reason I write this post is because I really really want to give a review on the homemade coconut ice cream from BANTHAI Express so there will be no commenting on any other dish here. Sorry…
The homemade coconut ice cream from BANTHAI Express is so creamy and full of coconut flavor. It has small pieces of young coconut chunks in there, so the moment you bite into it makes you want more and more. The combination of sweet sticky rice and bread (which has already absorbed all the coconut ice cream) just bursts in your mouth. The crunchiness of peanut just goes well and so amazing with coconut ice cream. Only one slight problem seems to be the temperature of her freezer – seems like it was not cold enough and somehow it created icy texture in her ice cream (P’Kate knew and she admitted that next time it will be better). I was absolutely impressed with her ice cream making skills. I would thoroughly recommend coconut ice cream from BANTHAI Express to anyone with a sweet tooth. I know I’ll certainly be returning soon. As the matter of fact I returned the next day with Ashley. LOL…!! 😛

** Taste/Flavor, it would have been 4 scores if it was not icy texture :), so hopefully next time Taste/Flavor will be score more than this**
