A Summertime Delicacy

As the warm breezes of summer begin to swirl, heralding the season of ripe mangoes in Thailand, Le Bonheur Pâtisserie prepares to enchant your palate with a traditional yet creatively adapted Thai dessert that promises a symphony of flavours and textures. The classic Thai Mango Sticky Rice, known for its rich cultural heritage and delightful taste, is reimagined by the culinary artisans at Le Bonheur Pâtisserie, offering a must-try experience for those eager to explore the authentic taste of Thailand with a twist.





The Essence of Summer on a Plate

Thai Mango Sticky Rice is not merely a dessert; it's an embodiment of Thai summer, capturing the essence of the season's most cherished fruit. At Le Bonheur Pâtisserie, this dish is celebrated with a fervent passion, prepared occasionally to coincide with the peak season of the Thai ripe mango. The dessert features a dual-layered sticky rice base, each tier offering a unique taste and texture that beautifully complements the star of the dish—the mango.


A Tapestry of Flavours

The top layer of the dessert is made from Khiew Ngu, a variety of white sticky rice that is soaked in coconut milk, lending it a creamy, rich flavor that melts in your mouth. The bottom layer introduces a delightful contrast with its use of Black sticky rice, harvested from the fertile lands of Chiang Rai province in northern Thailand. This variety adds a nutty flavor and a unique texture, creating a harmonious blend of tastes that are both intriguing and comforting.


The Jewel of the Dish

Served alongside this exquisite base is the ripe Nam Dok Mai mango, locally nurtured in Amphur Nong Saeng, Udon Thani. The mango's sweet and tangy flavor profile elevates the dish, providing a refreshing burst that balances the creamy richness of the sticky rice. The mangoes, carefully selected for their quality and ripeness, are the true jewels of this culinary masterpiece, embodying the soul of Thai summertime.


An Enchanting Finale

To complete this culinary journey, the dish is dressed with a velvety coconut sauce, enriching the flavors and adding a layer of luxurious creaminess. The finishing touch, a sweet and sour mango sauce, refreshes the palate, leaving a lingering taste that invites you to explore further. This final flourish encapsulates the essence of the dish—a refreshing, vibrant dessert that perfectly concludes any meal.
