Thai desserts

When in Thai town, don't forget dessert! Across the parking lot from Ruen Pair - next to Palms Thai - is a Thai dessert cafe with fine housemade Thai desserts and packaged sweets from many lands. You'll find that preserved durian is a shadow of its pugnacious fresh predecessor; pang chi (fried taro thingies) are great, though I haven't compared the kanom krok (coconut milk cake fried in a special pan with golf-ball sized holes) to the tasty versions served w/green onion at Wat Thai temple and the parking lot of Silom Thai supermarket on Hollywood Blvd. Also, there is a cool dessert spot called Kamon [= dessert] Thai that's further east on Hollywood closer to Sanamluang and Vim.

Thai taco is an amazing hard shell thingy about the diameter of a coaster, folded in half, spread with something alarmingly like a thin layer of Miracle Whip and cradling tendrils of eggy orange sweet filling.
