Traditional Thai Desserts

I love Thai desserts and that is probably one of the best things about living here in Thailand. You can see two of my favourites in this picture which are the “golden sweets”. These actually had their origin in Portugal but have been in Thailand for so long that most Thai people think it is their own.  They are made from the yolks of duck eggs and cooked with thick syrup.

    U sound very accusatory, golden sweets were never from Portugal, it was adapted by thai people. Please stop posting inaccurate remarks as it will give people the wrong idea. Check you facts please!!! And if you don’t know where, a good start is the library but can you read thai or you can’t even read basic thai?

      Thanks for your comment. Actually it is well documented that many of the desserts in this picture originated in Portugal. Even the Museum of Siam in Bangkok has a display about Portuguese influence in Thailand.
