Thaice-Cream Van

Keeping cool in Thailand can be a struggle at times, so when you see the ice cream van parked up how could you possibly say no.

Now may I just declare that this guy was the coolest ice cream man have ever seen (excuse the pun). Just look at him!

Back to topic… did I say ice cream van? sorry, this guy rides a motorbike. I think by now you get a picture of the sort of dude we’re dealing with here.


There is just one flavour of ice cream served which is a vanilla / creamy coconut which is slightly frosty so I would guess it may be dairy free and made wholly from coconut milk. This is scooped into a little plastic cup in layers. Each layer separated by the fillings presented at the front of his bike. In the image below, From right to left we have: Sticky Rice, Rambutan, Diced mango, red beans, pineapple and peanuts.



Just pick and chose what fillings you want, The sticky rice and ice cream with peanuts was sensational.

It’s like a party in the street when this guy turns up.
