BANGKOK | Is there a more iconic Thai dessert than kao niew mamuang, aka mango sticky rice? Nobody quite knows when or where in Thailand it was created, bit what is certain is that Kor Panit (also translated Kor Panich), opened by two former Grand Palace royal chefs in 1932, was one of the first places to sell it to everyday Bangkok locals.
Kor Panit is still trading in the same location today. Unchanged is their family recipe. A combination of mango with glutinous sweet rice, topped with coconut milk and crisp yellow mung beans.
You can find the dessert all over the city these days, but Kor Panit still stands tall as having one of the best versions in town. For my absolute favourite mango sticky rice spot in Bangkok, check out my post here.
