Kanoom Thai Dessert Cafe isn’t quite visible to most as it is located at the second floor at Block 7 of Tanjong Pagar Plaza. The location is quite a disadvantage. As the name of the cafe, it is one which specialises in Thai Desserts and Thai Toast.
The cafe is situated at a corner with 2 glass panels, making it a little like an aquarium.
Space is decked with simple dinning tables and chairs with a corner with a few comfortable cushy sofa seats and some cushions with Thai design were added to make the whole space a little Thai.
At Kanoom, food were simple Toastburi. Either Toast or Steamed Bun in Thai Pandan Kaya, Chayen or Durian Filling or Dip. You have a choice to complete a set with either hot coffee or tea.
I had the Steamed Bread with Chayen Dip Set and my choice of drink was Lemongrass Tea.
I like the Hot Lemongrass Tea as it has a nice Lemongrass fragrance which wasn’t overwhelming. It would be perfect if it wasn’t too sweet.
Kanoom offers about 10 type of Thai Desserts. Some popular selection include the Mango Glutinous Rice, The Red Ruby, Tapioca. I went for the Red Ruby and added Chendol toppings. I was glad that this dessert was with the perfect sweetness suited to my tastebud. It has a light floral hint making it surprisingly refreshing as Kanoom has added Jasmine to the coconut milk. I enjoyed the dessert.
Jasmine Pudding ($4.50) is lightly sweetened with a subtle scent of Jasmine, pretty refreshing. It is surrounded with Red Ruby, White and Black Pearl to enhance the texture. It is certainly a dessert pleasing to all senses.
I was informed by the server that they sourced all of their ingredients from Thailand no wonder it tasted authentic.
Kanoom served authentic Thai Desserts at a very reasonable price. So pop by before they start to increase the price.
