Sticky rice with fresh mango is a great example of the “whole is more than the some of its parts” principle–a few simple ingredients, and a brilliant result.
The Wat Thai Temple’s serves one of the best sticky rice with mangos around. The mangoes are never less than perfectly ripe, says monkey. On weekends from 11 AM to 3 PM. $3 will get you a pint of sticky rice, a whole mango and a small cup of coconut cream; $5 gets you double. Go to the booth with the longest line, they have the best mango with sticky rice, Kain Natayo adds.
Tuk Tuk Thai sometimes serves it as a special and it’s so good, says echo eater.
Chandra makes a very good version using the most succulent and delicious mangoes, WildSwede says. Saladang’s version is worth checking out too, says charmo.
Bhan Kanom Thai is a small Thai snack shop that makes pretty good sticky rice and mango, although the mango isn’t as fresh as its’ precut. As a bonus, pick up a package of their completely delish green mango slices with sticky sauce, just don’t eat too much or your stomach will regret it, says igj. They also make a great version of kanom krok and sweet black rice too.
Siamese Garden makes excellent sticky rice with mango, and the rest of their menu is solid too.
The sticky rice and mango at Cafe Talesai is the one outstanding dish on an otherwise mediocre menu, says omotosando.
