Do you know that mango sticky rice is one of the most popular desserts in Thailand? If you have a chance to visit Thailand, try the original mango sticky rice.

"This dessert dish is pretty good" - That's what our customers usually told us when they first tried it. You should try this dish anywhere when you have a chance. It is a simple dish - sweet sticky rice, with ripe mango, coconut milk, and sesame seeds. The two major ingredients are obviously sticky rice and mango.
