Sample a delicious Thai dessert after your meal
After experiencing a fusion of savoury flavours like chilli and lemongrass, you might think Melbourne's Thairestaurants won't have anything sweet to offer. But fear not: desserts are certainly on offer at many of Melbourne's Thai restaurants, and they sure are delicious. Many desserts revolve around coconut, like bananas in coconut cream or coconut jasmine rice pudding. For a more fruity twist, why not go for a fak thong sang-ka-ya (traditional pumpkin custard) or mango served with sticky rice. If you've not left room after your main course, don't worry: there are plenty of traditional palate-cleansing teas on the menu at Melbourne's Thai restaurants, and they are often infused with delectable spices like cardamom and star anise.
