These Custard-Filled Buns Are What You Deserve For Merienda
Besides Thai milk tea, pink milk, pad Thai, and mango sticky rice, another famous street snack you can find sold along Bangkok's busy streets are charcoal-grilled buns. If you want to try this snack, you can order these custard buns from The Custard Buns.
Similar to how it's prepared in Thailand, The Custard Buns also uses a charcoal grill to heat the bread and then fill it with a filling based on the customer's choice. When it comes to Custard Buns' filling selection, the bestsellers are the Buttermilk, Tsokolate, Thai Pandan, Salted Egg, and Dalgona Coffee flavors. They also have fillings in Pinoy flavors: there's Ube Plain, Ube Cheese, Mango Graham, Cheesy Mango, and Crunchy Peanut Butter.
You have the option to have the buns char-grilled, plain or not grilled at all, or a mix of both. If you think about it, these custard buns are somewhat similar to grilled pandesal dipped in creamy, sweet condensed milk! Fans of the pandesal and condensed milk pairing will surely love these custard buns, too.
The Custard Buns' custard buns cost P450/box of 12, P320/box of 8, and P100/a dozen of plain buns. To place an order, you can fill out this order form.
