Places Where You Can Get Mango Sticky Rice In Manila
If you love yellow mangoes, this dessert is for you.
It's no surprise that Thailand's food is one of the more popular cuisines in the world: it makes use of fresh greens and spices, giving most of its dishes bold flavors, like the Tom Yum, Pad Thai, Panang Curry, and Som Tam. But because most of their dishes are already bursting with vibrant flavors, sometimes all you need is something simple for dessert. A famous dessert you can find in Thailand is the mango sticky rice.
A mango sticky rice is a traditional Thai dessert that's simply made with glutinous white rice, slices of fresh yellow mango, and a drizzle of coconut milk. Yes, this is mostly available in Thailand, but you can also find it in most Thai restaurants in Manila.
