King Mango Thai – That Mango Dessert Cup That Went Viral In Jakarta. Queues Were For Hours
[Jakarta] Move aside, Bubble Tea and Thai Milk Tea, the new viral drink in Indonesia has arrived in town… King Mango Thai.
”Minuman Jaman Now” , that means “Drink now”.
Located at the basement of Neo Soho Mall, this dessert drink from King Mango Thai has become the most trending drink on social media.
So much so that customers were willing to queue up to 2-3 hours to get this dessert drink when the kiosk first opened.
Though soon enough, there were other versions of the dessert drink popping up throughout Jakarta and other Indonesian cities. There is always a first-player’s advantage though.
King Mango Thai serves up Mango Puree Drink (IDR 50k, SGD$5), which is considered expensive.
Served in a huge plastic cup, it consists of mango puree, whipped cream, mango sorbet and big chunks of Thai Mangoes.
There are 2 ways to drink this: to have it as it is; or mix up everything.
I tried both ways, but honestly there wasn’t really much of a difference.
The mango cuts were definitely the highlights – sweet, and not that sour.
If you expected a drink that would transform your dessert world, maybe it won’t.
I wished the mango puree was served colder, so that it would elevate refreshness-level of the drink.
Portion wise, it was very generous, so much that I could not finish up myself.
Recommended for sharing.
By the way, Singapore has also introduced Mango King Thai at ION Orchard. Same same, but different.
