While flying to Bangkok for a leisurely weekend still seems so far away, one of the things we miss the most is the street food. It’s cheap, it’s fuss-free, and it’s so so delicious. It’s a street food haven like none other.
But there’s one snack I miss more than classics like boat noodles and mango sticky rice. Fluffy Yaowarat Buns, filled to the brim with luscious fillings. Thankfully, you can find it at the new Grandstand opening, Tearuk Dessert Bar.
They only just opened not long ago but their buns have gotten plenty of attention on social media. Just look at the ooze.
At S$2.50 each, these thicc babies are loaded with a glut of creamy filling. They are so stuffed, it looks like they can overflow at any moment!
The best thing about Tearuk Dessert Bar’s 8 flavours is the fact they aren’t limited to the usual suspects like condensed milk. Besides Milk, there’s also a Thai Tea Kaya, Taro, and Chocolate.
Their signature Thai Pandan Kaya is also perfect if you’re tired of our local kaya toast breakfasts.
On the other hand, there are also savoury flavours such as Ham & Cheese, Crab Mayo, and Pizza for those who want something heartier.
So if you’re looking for goodies to bring to a picnic, these buns might just impress your gang or date.
Besides their overflowing buns, Tearuk Dessert bar also sells Milk Tea. Hence the wordplay on “Teeruk” in their name, which means sweetie in Thai.
Flavours include Thai Milk Tea (S$3.50/4.50), Thai Green Milk Tea (S$3.50/4.50), Milk Tea Brown Sugar (S$3.80/4.80) and Taro Latte (S$3.80/4.80). They come in bottles of either 300ml or 500ml.
If you’ve never heard of this legendary toast before, it’s actually one of the most popular street food stalls in Bangkok’s Chinatown.
It’s located right in front of Government Savings Bank at Yaowarat and draws long queues. But it’s worth the wait.
It’s a surprise it hasn’t gotten more popularity in Singapore like other Thai classics. Hopefully, more local cafes will join Tearuk Dessert Bar in popularising this tasty snack.
