We are so lucky to be here during mango season! I can't say that I was a mango fanatic before arriving to Thailand but that has now changed. I am convinced that the ones that I had prior to being here- weren't ripe.
It's hard to go anywhere right now without seeing women peeling mangos, huge overflowing baskets of them ready to delight a customer or some sort of mango special outside of a restaurant. I've been loving the mango smoothies and sticky rice with mango.
Sticky rice with mango is a very popular Thai dessert but I find it too filling to have after a meal- so have been getting as a mid-day treat. There are 3 parts to this amazing, yet simple dish. The sticky (or glutinous) rice, sliced mango and a sweet coconut milk sauce.
I found this funny little video about getting mango sticky rice on the street in Bangkok. Be sure to watch this guy's expression when he takes a bite!
