BANGKOK | Mae Varee Mango Sticky Rice opened just over 20 years ago, and many consider it to be the city’s top spot for the classic Thai desert, mango sticky rice. There’s the classic version, as well as riffs on it, which feature rice naturally flavoured with things like butterfly pea, turmeric, pandan, and matcha.
It’s the classic for me which really showcases why the mango sticky rice at Mae Varee is a cut above the rest. The Nam Dok Mai cultivar of mangoes have a nice firm texture, with well balanced sweetness and slight tang, while the coconut milk and rice are sourced from independent growers across Thailand.
As well as mango sticky rice, Mae Varee also sell things like mango sundaes, sweets and treats, and whole mangoes. I highly recommend grabbing a few packets of their soft, sugar coated lollies. The real, natural mango flavour really shines through.
