One of the earliest vendors to meet Bangkok’s streets are the iced drinks stands which set up to meet the city’s early risers and rush hour traffic. No different than elsewhere in the world Thai’s turn to coffee and tea (cha nom yen) for their early morning pick-me-up. The Thai Iced Coffee carts can easily be recognised by sweet coffee aromas and hovering bees over sweet sugars and milks.
The Bangkok street vendors mix a strong blend of black coffee, powdered milk and sugar. This is then poured over ice and served in a plastic cup with straw. For an added boost to your Thai iced coffee enjoy an unhealthy offering of condensed milk.
