Phuket : Afternoon Tea with Mangoes

Phuket - Hi-Tea Set

Phuket, Thailand.
Having a private deck facing the gardens in the Royal Phawadee Village Resort makes a great setting for an afternoon tea which we prepared with mangoes, mango sticky rice and some doughnut balls from Jungceylon's Dunkin Donuts together with some tea.

Phuket - Maung

Ma Maung, “mango” in Thai, is one my favourite fruits. I love it as Mango Sago, I love it as Mango Pudding and I definitely love it in its original form. There are more than 20 kinds of mangoes in Thailand. I not sure what this was that I got from the fruit stall, it was smooth, sweet with a dominant sourness. The flesh was slightly firm.

Phuket - Kao Niew Ma-Maung

Perhaps the most famous dessert in Thailand (besides the Red Ruby) is Kao Niew Ma-Maung, the mango sticky rice. A must have in Thailand. This version wasn’t as nice as the one I had in Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport though. The mango wasn’t sweet enough and the coconut sauce was quite bland. The mango and mango sticky rice cost us 90 THB in total.
