[Bangkok] Where the world’s smelliest fruit gets its own dessert café.
Insanely popular shibuya toast shop After You has opened an all-things-durian concept store.
Situated on the ground floor of Siam Paragon, After You Durian Room is adjacent to the popular After You Café.
One of the reasons why this dessert café special, is the fact that there are not that many places in the area serving durian-inspired dishes.
The interior is considered basic in Bangkok’s standard, consisting of wooden tables and chairs.
You will also notice their motto” There’s always room for dessert” and dozens of lamps hanging from the wooden boards. The crowd here, is not as brisk as next door’s store though.
Some of their signature treats include Durian Shibuya Toast (285 baht), Durian Sticky Rice Honey Toast (325 baht), Nutella Durian Toast (305 baht), Durian Sticky Rice Kakigori (345 baht), Chocolate Mud Brownie with Durian Ice Cream (215 baht), Durian Crumbstick (95 baht) and even a Durian Frappe (165 baht).
Durian Frappe? Yikes!
Even though I am NOT totally a durian fan, I thoroughly enjoyed the Durian Sticky Rice Honey Toast. The toast itself was crispy with a fluffy texture.
There were many interesting elements that combined well together. You can pour durian pulp all over the three fat scoops of ice cream first.
After you cut the toast open, you would find ‘treasures’ of sweet sticky rice, along with chunks of fresh durian fruit. All in perfect harmony.
Warning though, this could be very filling, and they did not provide mints.
The best time to visit After You Durian Room is probably around noon before large crowds of visitors start to swell up.
In order to reach After You Durian Room, just take the BTS Skytrain to Siam Station. Siam Paragon is located right next to it.
