You’ll catch sight of this classic Thai dessert all over Bangkok, with it’s pink kernels shimmering like pomegranate seeds. They’re made from tiny cubes of water chestnut that have been coated in tapioca flour and coloured with food dye. They usually come served with crushed ice and coconut milk, but you can add extras like young coconut jelly, jackfruit, lotus seeds, candied fruit and more. Tub Tim Krob Siam is a small, understated shop with pink walls in busy Banglamphu, but they do a fantastic tub tim grob with plenty of add ins, including sweet, dehydrated cherry tomatoes. You can also get ruam mit (coconut dessert soup with jackfruit, toddy palm seeds and more) and salim (sweet, coloured mung bean noodles in coconut milk).
