Mango-based desserts are ready to soothe the summer heat at cafes and restaurants within walking distance of three major malls in downtown Bangkok – Siam Paragon, Siam Center and Siam Discovery.

At Nara on G Floor at Siam Paragon, the Mango and Sticky Rice utilises the sweet nam dok mai variety. IHop on the same floor and also on the fourth floor has a great Mango Pancake, with fresh blueberries and whipped cream joining the sweet mango on top.

Also on G Floor, Another Hound has its own version of Mango and Sticky Rice presented in layers in a crystal glass, and Vanilla Brasserie tempts with a Mango Crepe – a cocoa crepe with sticky rice, coconut ice cream and nam dok mai mango, topped with blueberries and pomegranate.

At Siam Center, Tarr Tarr, a tart cafe chain based in South Korea, is ready to offer the Mango Tart – crunchy pastry with cream-cheese topped with diced sweet mango. Another popular sweets restaurant from Korea, Sulbing, has sour and sweet Mango Cheese Bingsu, which features shaved ice with mango, almonds, yoghurt ice-cream and cheesecake.

China-based Yenly Yours presents Mango with Sticky Rice, with both nam dok mai and si thong varieties, while Baan Ying Cafe and Meal has Snowy Mango – shaved ice topped with mango and condensed milk.

My Kitchen at Siam Discovery has Panna Cotta Mango Passion Fruit from Brix Dessert Bar, and On-Ing Mango Ice Cream.
